I’ve been podcasting since before it was called podcasting, but professionally I’m an executive/leadership coach serving CEOs, business owners, and city government leaders. As a long-time CEO, I stepped away about a dozen years ago to serve executives. The work is about people – mostly helping leaders build high-performing careers, groups, teams, and organizations. I produce a podcast to compliment my coaching called, Grow Great: A City Government Leadership podcast.
I live and work in the DFW metro area with my wife, Rhonda. This is where my tribe is, including 5 grandkids. I’m a property owner inside Hot Springs Village and enjoy visiting as often as possible. You can learn more about me and find all the ways to follow or connect with me on social media by going to RandyCantrell.com.
HSV Inside Out’s first episode informs everybody why I began this podcast. Sometimes I even make an appearance on the podcast, but mostly I fill the role of producer and remain behind the scenes.
Like my friend Randy, my background is very diverse.
A graduate of Southern Baptist College in “downtown” Walnut Ridge, Arkansas I have worked in printing, music ministry, real estate, IT, VOIP, radio/voiceover work, and short-term rentals. In the process fell in love with my dear wife, business partner, and co-host of our radio show Country Corner on KVRE.
My heart and soul are in Hot Springs Village. For over 20 years I have bought and sold properties here and love it more every day. I recall living in Little Rock and owning the 3rd largest IT company in Arkansas. I had 16 employees and 17 headaches. Every time I would come to Hot Springs Village to shoot photos or buy/sell lots I could hardly pull myself away.
I recall driving out the gates, back to Little Rock to a very nice home overlooking the Arkansas River, and staring in the windows of Hot Springs Village residents. I would say to myself, “they get to stay here every night” … for a kid that grew up only 15 miles from Hot Springs Village I know it seems odd. The beauty is hard to match but that is only the tip. The people here, the serenity, the silence, and nature to this day make us feel as if we are walking into God’s Nature Sanctuary, careful not to disrupt the order and peace.
This podcast is an ongoing attempt to explain, educate, and entertain others about the greatness of Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. We hope the podcast engages current residents and property owners, people who enjoy visiting often, interested people who have never visited, and those who may be considering making Hot Springs Village, Arkansas their future home.
