I have been an Executive Consultant, for the past 20 years, working with fortune 100 companies and start up business, as a Transformation Expert, basically I work with senior executives helping them redesign or reorganize their companies. (There’s more to it, but I think you get the jest) The past couple of years (before 2009) I would fly out to CA or NY or wherever on Sunday then fly back to WI on Thursday evenings. I was pretty exhausted, so I decided to take some time off of work to give myself some rest. I also teach at DePaul University and UW Whitewater as an adjunct faculty, received my 2nd masters and am working on my doctorate (just started).
Currently, I have discovered many new things about myself, many ways I can help people, communities and the world.
Besides being an Executive Coach, I am a Health and Fitness Coach; I help individuals to lose weight, eat healthy and refocus their life vision (similar to what I do with companies but it's on a personal level).
I also teach a virtual year long class called "Publish Your First Book" where I guide people through the process to get their first book published. Here's my brochure for you to read more about it: http://kmgroshek.com/studyguide/WriteYourFirstBookClass-Brochure.pdf
I believe in living an authentic, creative and resilient life; I am an author and illustrator of the childrens' books Bug’s Adventure Series®, Floyd the Fire Truck Series®, Buddy the Healthy Guy Series®, and Sophia the Crabb Series® (children’s books, games and cartoons). I love to challenge myself, I have run 5 marathons (2 chicago, 2 madison and 1 Disney), 28 half marathons in 28 states, 42 half marathons in my lifetime and completed 5 Sprint-Distance Triathlons, 1 Olympic Distance Ironman and 1 Long-Course or Half Ironman Triathlons in my lifetime, so far!
Complete my first Ironman (so to me it would be Ironwoman, ha ha) and finish up running a half marathon in all 50 states, maybe even run a marathon somewhere in another country; have successful cartoon(s) at several film festivals (including Sundance and international film festivals), (with supportive producers, directors and agents that encourage me along the way); with positive public response; and successfully complete and publish my first fiction novel.
earn the proper techniques for bike racing and work with a USS swim coach to learn the proper swim stroke techniques and continue working on strength training. I want to volunteer in another country, help rebuild a community in need. I want to continue to donate my books to kids who cannot afford them, hoping they can enjoy my stories and learn the lessons written in them. My biggest hope is to receive positive recognition for my Cartoon (maybe be nominated at the Oscars), and receive an award (maybe even the Caldecott) for one of my books.
