The WINtheNOW Gathering equipped me to think about what I really want in life.  The mountains I want to climb and how to start that climb.  -Kalen Ludwig, Groundbreaker Homes



Eric Recker

​Eric Recker knows burnout. He lived it for much of his professional career. Burnout took him to within weeks of selling his dental practice and walking away. When that option was off the table, he had to pivot and face his life and reality. He learned the equation that we all must pay attention to if we are going to live our lives in the present moment. His goal in the second half of his life is to help others learn to show up, level up, and thrive through the concept of WINtheNOW. You will leave today with hope and belief that good days are ahead!

Dawn Ealy

Lisa Even

Lisa Even: Joy is My Job!
Life doesn’t happen tomorrow at noon, it happens today…in every moment, situation, and scenario. I invite you to be part of an energetic, yet practical and implementable session that is scenario-based. Lisa introduces a simple three-step process for creating a more JOYful and engaged team. She uses specific examples… some funny… some moving… some inspiring… so the audience will leave with powerful (and executable) strategies to apply immediately and JOY challenges to take home.


Eric’s outlook on life is infectious. WINtheNOW is so much more than just a catchphrase or slogan. It is truly how he lives, and how I strive to live my life. -Mike Roederer, General Manager, Orchestrate Hospitality

The NOW. Right here. Right now.
This is where life happens.
This is where the action is!

Life is lived in the present moment.  Period.
It’s the only thing that is guaranteed. The moment right in front of us.

Unfortunately, we find ourselves in the middle of an epidemic.  And it is growing quickly.  We are either stuck in the past or worried about the future.

And we miss the NOW.  Because we just aren’t there.  Sure our body is there.  But our mind is elsewhere.

There is hope!  Because I was there.  Absent from my life.  Absent from my family.

Today is your day! This is your NOW!

Time to step into the present moment and learn how to live there.

Eric Recker - Speaking

So what’s at stake?

How about your health?
How about your one chance at this life?
How about living a life you don’t want to escape?
How about your chance to thrive?

Think about it. Think about the difference you could make if you lived your life in the present moment as a leader. To live in the present. To make decisions from a mind that is in the same place as your body.

You will learn a new mindset of how to get into the present moment, how to remain there, and how to win.

So what’s at stake? Only the trajectory of your life.

This is your chance to SHOW up, LEVEL up, and THRIVE!

Think about it…
What will it do for your career if you are fully present no matter what is going on?

How could you impress your boss, your clients, or your co-workers, when you can be calm in any storm?

What will it do for your family if, in the midst of the chaos of the family calendar you are able to meet your family right where they are, love them well, and remain calm?

You will learn all of this AND how to bring more joy into your life AND how to make great connections!

What’s even better than all of that? You will be #1, uno, the first. Yes, you heard that right! You will be a part of the first #WINtheNOW Gathering. You will be on the ground floor of something amazing. Just think- you will always be able to say I was there at the start.

And yes, we will serve lunch! I know… I was worried about that!

Now it’s your turn. Isn’t it time you invested in yourself and your future in this one chance you get at life?

And as a bonus, here is my gift to you! You are invited to stay for the launch of my highly-anticipated second book, That Dam Analogy. Stick around and help celebrate with us!
