Ep. 53 - Trust and Faith: Keys to Business Success

Join us as we interview high school sweethearts Kyle and Steph Johnson. Owners of 3 businesses and homeschool to 2 young girls, they share some of the secrets to their success in marriage and business. As you know the journey to success is not always a straight line up and 2020 certainly was no exception. It’s easy to lead when things are going well but it’s those down periods in life and business that really defines you as a leader. 

So click play and listen up as Kyle and Steph candidly share about their periodic struggles in life and what has kept them moving forward regardless of circumstance. Trust and faith in each other and God. 



Kyle and Steph have been married since 2007. They are high school sweethearts and now have 2 little girls that are growing up too fast. Kyle and Steph are active in their church, leading their small group, and helping in the music ministry. They have a heart to help those around them. Steph is an Elite Personal Trainer and Kyle owns a couple businesses in the marketing space, Zipp Printing and Blackwood Creative. Kyle has owned a few other businesses over that last 15 years. Kyle’s passion is building businesses where team members can enjoy coming to work and feel cared for while they’re there.
