I am so proud to endorse Eric Collier and his work! Eric’s commitment to sharing with others is so genuine and is born out of commitment to chasing his dreams. That commitment was built upon courage and some hard-fought lessons learned.


He never stops, he never slows down, and he always has gas remaining in the tank to take others with him…..from where they are stuck, to where they want to be. People say “rise and grind” who have never seen the sun come up because they are sleeping in, not Eric! He does whatever it takes and is up before the sun every day – literally.


Eric epitomizes leadership, and leadership with a servant’s heart. I saw this up close when I started a project to help new and junior employees be more comfortable speaking in public. I canvassed the organization to see who was good at public speaking and who would be willing to make time for this mentoring. Time and again, one name came up – Eric Collier.
