Industry Spotlight – Bill Sammons

What is your life verse and why?
“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8.  

Favorite ice cream flavor?
Mint Chocolate Chip

Who’s your hero?
My Dad. He retired from pastoring a church to take care of my Mom who had Alzheimer’s for almost 19 years. He provided round the clock care for her for over a decade, and taught us what love really looks like.

How many hours of sleep do you need?
I need 8. I generally get about 6. Doing morning radio is tough on the body.

If you could eat one meal for the rest of your life what would it be?
Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, mac n cheese and sweet tea. The rest of my life would be short but tasty.

I like writing, reading, playing golf, hanging with friends, and trying new restaurants.

Worst gift you’ve ever received?
A pony. Turns out you have to feed those things. And clean the stalls.

How many pairs of shoes do you own?
9 but I haven’t worn about 6 pairs since I bought them.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
I was in Jordan one time and I ate a small bird that had been roasted. Bones and all.  One bite. It seemed weird, but then I realized I eat soft shelled crabs and that is equally weird if you didn’t grow up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland or Delaware.

Toilet paper: over or under?
The correct way: Over.

On a scale of 1-10, how funny would you say you are?
Self unaware people don’t realize they are self unaware, right? And I suppose the same goes for judging our own humor.  So I Googled it, and this website says I am ‘super funny’.

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you?

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
