#014: Run Forrest, Run – Heath Oakes Interview Part 1 [Podcast]

Heath Oakes

I first meet Heath Oakes about a year ago when he became the Territory Manager for North Texas (the Dallas/Fort Worth area.)

I’ll be honest with you I was skeptical about Heath at first. His track record was impressive, but I wasn’t sure if he was genuine or had just memorized all the right things to say.  As I have got to know him, I have to tell you, there isn’t a disingenuous bone in his body.  You will hear his passion and energy level today I promise.  As Heath would say, “If this podcast doesn’t light your fire, your wood is wet.”

Things Heath and I Talked About:

  • Forrest Gump
  • Ignorance on fire
  • Spare Me Your Creativity
  • Setting expectations
  • Opening groups
  • Why he is so passionate about Voluntary Benefits
  • Why his best friend thought he was dealing drugs.
  • Why he hates the word realistic.
  • Two of our favorite Zig Ziglar quotes

This is part one of a two-part interview. “Tune In” next Saturday (May 31, 2014) for part two! I promise you Heath gets even more passionate. Thanks for listening!!!
