The Surprising Practicality of Dreaming | Dan Dan Ralphs | TEDxPSU

Danville Summit Speaker Highlight:
Meet small business growth expert, Dan Ralphs, who will be helping us kick off the Danville Summit for our first full day of sessions!

Sterling Lighting co-founders Patrick Harders & Damien Sanchez first worked with Dan and his team about a decade ago, and his tools, framework, and coaching led to substantial growth in their individual businesses and their joint business.

Want to know a little more about Dan?

Dan is the CEO and Founder of Dream Leadership Consulting. For years, Dan has coached companies who are working to transition from 7-figures to 8-figures in their business. This is a particularly tricky transition for anyone because it is the moment when a leader moves from business owner to CEO. Dan and his team at Elite have worked with hundreds of business owners and help them to grow both in terms of bottom line revenue but also in the quality of their culture. Having helped lead a company that was both on the Inc 500 and on the Great Places to Work lists at the same time, Dan understands how to strike the balance for both stakeholders, and employees. Before founding Dream Leadership Consulting, Dan was the facilitator of the Dreaming Program at Infusionsoft (a small software company in Chandler, AZ), where he helped its employees to identify, articulate and accomplish their dreams. As a result of his work, he has developed an amazing ability to help people discover their own dreams and learn how to go after them. His realistic approach to dreaming recognizes that dreaming is not a ‘magic pill’ but rather a new way of thinking about our ability to create.

Also, check out his TEDx talk on the topic of dreaming big!

The Surprising Practicality of Dreaming | Dan Dan Ralphs | TEDxPSU Dream Manager, Dan Ralphs, clearly details the anatomy of a dream and how we can leverage dreaming to help ourselves and those we lead grow more creative, gr...

Danville Summit

A word from Patrick Harders:

I apologize for the length in advance.
In 2011 I realized in order for my business to change, I needed to first challenge my thinking and start coming up with a plan to grow. I was thirteen years into running my lighting business, with myself, two loyal people helping me on installs and someone answering the phones. My business had simply stalled and to add to the challenge we had started a manufacturing company that was pulling me out of the installation field. Ultimately, I was the bottleneck on my company’s growth.
One of the first steps was hearing Dan Ralph’s discussion on understanding the stages of a business and how to overcome each one. (That is why he is kicking off our Danville Summit.)
I came back to my team in fall of 2013 and told them that we have a new goal to grow our business from $600k to 6M. It was a goal that was almost embarrassing to vocalize and I am not sure anyone else believed me. We are approaching 2/3rds of our goal and we should hit our full goal by 2024. We also set out to build a 10m organization between companies, which we did in 8 years. It was an amazing ride that started with an investment in growing myself, my people, and my business.
I believe this next decade is going to be the most transformational one in landscape lighting. I believe we are going to see designs reaching levels we have not even conceived. It will be like looking back at our projects we did 20 years ago and wondering, “What was I thinking?” I believe we will see lighting businesses that grow to the 10m mark as fairly commonplace. We have set goals for both the design/ install and the manufacturing that are embarrassing to vocalize again. Hitting our goals can only be accomplished through better products, better designs, amazing opportunities for our people, and an amazing customer experience.
I want to personally invite everyone to our event in Danville, Virginia. We are going to go through how to truly scale your business. We are bringing together the absolute best lighting designers to lead design training. We are going to have new opportunities to add true complimentary services that will grow your business. We are going to cover proven strategies to impact your business. We are bringing in a number of speakers that will address many strategies that will help you from day to day to long term growth.
Finally, due to over 20 lighting technicians already signed up for the event, we are going to have technician training breakouts to make certain your technicians leave excited and have new skills that elevate their skill set as well. This will include field/ outdoor training run by many of the top installers in our industry.
Our goal in 2014 was to elevate and change the lighting industry. I believe this next decade is going to be an amazing one and cannot wait to watch some of you grow your business and this industry to levels we never thought possible.
If you are interested, I will see you in Danville, VA in July.
