Award-winning author and past contributing editor at Builder Magazine. Associate, Bachelor, and Master degrees in engineering. Started up and currently own a successful software company, as well as award-winning consulting companies. I've taped eight TV shows with brother, Mark, "The Garrison Brothers". Besides being published numerous times in Builder Magazine, my articles have appeared in Nations Building News, Professional Builder, Journal of Light Construction, Professional Engineer, and other national publications.
My passion is helping businesses maximize profit while enjoying every day. "Maximum PIE - Winning in Business" is the system I created and teach. My client list includes 35+ companies all over the U.S. and Canada.
My latest book, "P.E.A.R.L. - How Titans Succeed" is an easy-to-read how-to on success. It is the culmination of 15 years study of more than 75 titans from Hershey to Disney to Aerosmith to Schwarzenegger. I discovered five recurring themes in the success of EVERY self-made titan: Passion, Effort, Ability, Risk, and Luck (PEARL.) Those themes plus my own experience as a successful entrepreneur form the foundation of the Maximum PIE system.
I bring a fun, high-energy, interactive (as much as is appropriate) experience to every presentation. When you hire me you won't be bored - I guarantee it. Everything I do comes with a win-win guarantee.
"Quite simply I think this is the best training my staff has received, ever.”
Company CEO on Maximum PIE, Reno, NV.
"You talked about the fact that you bring in motivational business speakers from time to time. I can highly recommend Tim Garrison, the business consultant HMS, Inc. has been using for the past couple of years. The thing I like about Tim is that he fits his “issues” into your organization's approach – he doesn't try to make your company fit his ideas, and he doesn't come in and just start talking to your people – first he listens, then he modifies his talk to fit your organizational approach. He writes a column for [Builder Magazine] (he is a PE) – so he knows the construction world well.
"I originally brought Tim in to help me train my office managers, as none had ever managed employees before and were struggling with that aspect of the job. He has become a central figure on our company team - advising all levels of employees from rookie techs to upper management. He has had a phenomenal impact on our company morale and overall culture."
Company Owner and CEO, Modesto, CA
"I always learn from Tim, I think his insight and experience brings invaluable information to us each time he's here. I really appreciate Tim's effort to make us all the best we can be, both personally and as a company. Thank you [company president] for giving us this powerful tool. Already looking forward to next time."
Branch Manager, Bakersfield, CA on Maximum PIE.
"Tim gets your own managers and your own employees to identify what the problems and issues are within your company. He then empowers them, through the use of his direct experience and case studies, to determine the best path forward for your company, your situation and your people."
Maximum PIE attendee, Reno, NV.
"Tim, I really enjoyed your talk at the OHC retreat [Oklahoma Home Centers]. Your common sense approach is refreshing to say the least."
