Hi, I’m Randy Cantrell.
I’ve had many slashes behind my name. They’ve changed a bit through the years. In order of importance, this is how they’ve been most recently:
Christian / Husband / Father / Grandfather / Business Guy
That last one is the least personal of the bunch. And the least interesting, if you ask me.
I got married to Rhonda in 1978. We’re still married.
We had a son in 1980. We had a daughter in 1981.
Our daughter is married and has two sons. That resulted in me gaining a son-in-law and two grandsons.
Our son is married and has a daughter and a son. That resulted in the addition of a daughter-in-law, a granddaughter and another grandson.
We all live within about 6 miles of each other. We’re empty nesters, but the nest sure stays awfully busy sometimes. And that’s a good thing.
Our relationship today with our children is now on their terms. We told them that’s how it’d be when they moved out on their own some years ago. Thankfully, their terms seem to want us to be an integral part of their lives. We also all worship together…so life is very good!
BULA! is something I know firsthand – life is very good.
Bula is a Fiji term analogous to “aloha” in Hawaii meaning both hello and goodbye. It also carries with it the connotation that life is good.
At the heart of everything I do is communication. Clear communication.
Problem solving demands it. Leadership requires it. Accountability can’t exist without it. Marketing, sales and customer service hinge on it. Searching for answers and solutions, figuring out a better way, explaining a course of action, teaching people how, and why – it’s all about communication! That’s been my 40 year story in the world of business.
Today, it’s about writing, podcasting, speaking and using any other effective means of communication. It’s about creativity. It’s about passing along wisdom that comes with a lifetime of real world learning. It’s about helping others by teaching, entertaining and inspiring.
