About me

AP11_3417 done

I’m excited about the opportunity to share with the world the “Band of Bosses” blog.  Here we will talk about any and all subjects related to being a boss.  Whether you’re a business owner like myself or a manager at the mall, it makes no difference because this site is dedicated to having a community of leaders and helping  each other lead better. As a Christian I continually strive to incorporate biblical ideals into the corporate world which led to the Proverb that inspired Band of Bosses, “Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance”.  We are all leaders and learners on this site so feedback is greatly encouraged.  Everyone wants to hear from you so don’t be silent!  Just a few guidelines, no profanity and no belittling; we can correct, encourage and help each other with tact. Everyone that comes here is both a teacher and a student so lets make sure we act accordingly. Also,  I encourage each and every one of you to write your own article to be published here with the wisdom you have obtained from your own experiences; just send them to todd@bandofbrothers.com and once it passes review it will be posted.

I’d like to share a little bit about myself. Currently I am the President of Allen Sportswear, a fast growing team sports apparel company based in Orlando, FL.  I am also Co-Founder of iPrevail, a non profit organization that specializes in helping families overcome tragedy and get back on their feet.

I started off from humble beginnings, after a very unmotivating 4 years in high school I had two options presented to me; move out and work my way through Junior College or join the Military. I chose to enlist in the Navy and that began my journey into not only becoming a man but becoming a leader. While in the Military I achieved the highest ranking possible in a 4 year period and became a part of the Special Forces as a U.S. Navy 2nd class Diver. During my 4th of what was supposed to be 8 year enlistment I was hit by a car on base in Pearl Harbor and that was the end of my diving days (Yes, I know that doesn’t sound sexy but it’s the truth).
After my military days I jumped around doing everything from tutoring to working as a prison guard (juvenile hall actually) . Nothing caught my interest though until I met the woman of my dreams and decided I needed to grow up and get serious about a career if she was ever going to marry me. Yes, she does read this blog if you were wondering 😉 but that doesn’t change the facts. So, I decided to get into the exciting world of selling and I was a natural. I moved from one job to the next until I finally ended up at SBC, now called AT&T. I made good money but was left unfulfilled by what I was selling and what kind of impact I was making in the world.
That feeling eventually led me to start Allen Sportswear with my wife Tina and 10 years later we are still at it, learning from our mistakes and doing what we can to make each year better than the last. I love Allen Sportswear but one of the things I’m most proud of is iPrevail, which is something I get nothing out of but knowledge that I have made an impact in this world, which For me, there is no better feeling.

I look forward to hearing your stories and learning from your endeavors, thanks ahead of time for the knowledge you bring.
