Industry Spotlight – Brian Dishon

What is your life verse and why?
“Delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart”. Psalm 37:4

For many years I looked at this verse and thought that if I simply followed Jesus he would give me what I wanted.  Then I grew up ?.  I had this verse skewed.  If I delight in the Lord – meaning I get pleasure in his presence and know him well, then God will GIVE me the desires of my heart.  He gifts them to me, he doesn’t grant me wishes.


What was your childhood nickname?


What’s your go to karaoke song?
“Miami” Will Smith – if I actually did karaoke.


What’s the last book you read?
Reboot by Jerry Colonna (plug for the Blinkist app)


What’s your favorite meme?
Recency Bias – Corona Virus Panic Room


Tacos or hamburgers?
Fresh grilled hamburger!


What’s worse: laundry or dishes?
Dishes – although I’m really good at it ?.


Is double dipping ever acceptable?
Only during social distancing.


Biggest pet peeve?
People who live life in a room full of mirrors – it’s about them and all things reflect back to them. Compared to people who live life in a room full of picture windows – they see how they impact the world and see others before they see themselves.


Dogs or cats?
Dogs (we have a Great Pyrenees  – Tracker & Lab Mix – Chance)


If you could have coffee with anyone, living or dead, who would it be?

Oh no, I don’t drink coffee!?! But if I did. . .Mark Twain – I am fascinated by storytellers.

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

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.
