I'm Danny Pippin

In 2001, I sat in a packed arena and heard Zig Ziglar say “You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want” and it felt as though he was speaking directly to me. Since that day, I’ve dedicated myself to personal growth and professional development. As my friend and mentor, John Maxwell says “You cannot give what you do not have.”

For over 20 years, I led multiple highly profitable multimillion-dollar businesses and built leadership and sales teams across the country during my Telecom & Corporate Retail career working with brands like Buckle, PacSun, Lucky Brand, and Billy Reid. I've served as Head of Stores & Ecommerce for a Fashion Retailer and Chief Operating Officer for a Branding & Marking Firm and a Fashion Technology Company. As a consultant, I've worked with over 50 global brands and many small businesses to build high performing teams and increase sales and profitability.

From that experience, I've developed my 4-Part Framework to help business leaders grow themselves, their team, and their business through consulting, coaching, and workshops. My goal is to create a fun and empowering learning experience by combining my distinctive style, corporate background experience, and proven time-tested principles from working alongside John Maxwell, Paul Martinelli, Jordan Belfort, Patrick Lencioni, Dr. Robert Caildini, and many more.

Finding my way...

As a kid, I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. So, by the time I was 23 years old I had worked over 21 different jobs trying to figure it out. Then, a friend asked me to help him during a tax-free weekend in a retail store he was managing. "Duck to water" I believe is the phrase. I started my retail career and finally, my skills, talents, and interests seemed to align for the first time. Things began moving fast, as I was promoted and moved 8 times in 9 years. Whew!

Over the years, the retail industry gave me a place to learn, grow, and serve others. And I loved my job! Well, except for doing expenses.

Throughout my career, working with The Buckle, Pac Sun, Lucky Brand and Billy Reid, I focused on 2 things:

  • Create the most enjoyable shopping experience possible for the guest.
  • Help as many people get promoted as possible. 

Who you learn from matters...

I began to feel stuck, and frustrated, and unfortunately my company didn't have developmental programs or succession planning in place. So, I began to piece together my own growth plan and that's when I was introduced to John Maxwell.

Valentine's Day 2014, I joined Maxwell Leadership, one of the top leadership certifications in the world, and became a Leadership Development Speaker, Trainer, and Professional Coach. This gave me the opportunity to be trained and mentored by New York Times Best-Selling Author and #1 Leadership Expert in the world Dr. John C. Maxwell and his world-class faculty. 

Now, I was equipped with the tools, resources, and world-class content to further grow myself and train and develop my retail teams to a higher level. I created developmental programs, workshops, and mastermind groups to train leaders throughout the entire organization in the areas of communication, leadership, and sales.


Maybe I can help more people...

Two years later, I was on two to six flights per week, traveling most weeks of the year, visiting retail locations from Oklahoma to Delaware and everywhere in between. I loved my job, my teams, and the company I worked for...

Then, one email changed everything. I received a request from a local business to help facilitate a company retreat. Up until now, I had only been coaching and training within the company I worked for so I, nervously, said "YES!" obviously. 

Thankfully, my Maxwell Leadership mentors walked me through what to do step by step. The business retreat was a huge success! This was the first time I realized the compounding effect of my knowledge, my experience, my expertise, and how I could add value to businesses outside the retail industry. This was the first time I saw myself as something other than "just a retail guy." 

Career to calling...

Now, I don't know about you, but if you've ever had a calling you know that it doesn't go away. So, In 2016, I founded my own consulting and coaching business to support entrepreneurs, business leaders, and organizations.

And as they say, "When the student is ready the teacher appears." That's when began to be mentored by accomplished entrepreneur, Paul Martinelli, who's built multiple multi-million dollar businesses. 

Today, I'm partners with John Maxwell, Paul Martinelli, Patrick Lencioni, and Dr. Robert Cialdini. My consulting and coaching practice brings a unique approach to solving business challenges by focusing on 3 primary areas:

  • Clarifying Purpose, Vision & Goals
  • Building High Performing Teams
  • Increasing Sales & Profitability

As I said in the beginning, "You cannot give what you do not have."

What About You...

What's Your Dream? 


I've heard it said that a dream is "the seed of possibility planted in the soul of a human being, which calls them to pursue a unique path to the realization of their purpose."  A dream is an "inspiring picture of the future that energizes your mind, will, and emotions, empowering you to do everything you can to achieve it."
