How The Dots Joined Up For Dirk But as we see time and time again in Join Up Dots, there comes a time when the path starts going in a different direction. And this happened to our guest, as back in 2016 , Dirk discovered a deeper purpose and re-evaluated everything he was doing and the path he was on. He made some huge changes including resigning from his corporate CEO position, shutting down one of his businesses, and relocating across the United States to launch BERGflow in January of 2017. Today, Dirk has been blessed to work with companies in 13 states, 4 countries, and on 3 continents, following his purpose: Empowering Entrepreneurs, CEO's, and Leaders to build powerful and productive teams and helping them grow and scale their businesses while giving them a better quality of life with more fulfilment. And it seems that Bergflow is the legacy work that his life has been building up to. So when he decided to throw it all in the air and reinvent his life was it truly scary time, or liberation from start to finish? And looking back what could he have done differently if he had the wisdom of experience at his fingertips?
