Todd Olsen

Todd specializes in helping business leaders all over the world build healthy businesses that have a transformational kingdom impact. During his 30 year career at Ford, Todd had some amazing experiences - started a JV Shanghai, China, negotiated multi-billion $$ deals selling companies like Aston Martin and Volvo, and helped the company develop its self-driving car strategy. In early 2016, Todd sensed God calling him into a new adventure so he voluntarily retired from a successful career at Ford. He took a one-year sabbatical (my 'Gap Year'), hired his own coach, and used that time to prepare for his next big adventure. Todd discovered that he loves to empower people through trustworthy partnerships - helping them understand that in Christ, you are 'More Than Enough'. This is at the heart of his vision for his LM-affiliated coach training business - Designed For Legacy. On a personal level, Todd has been happily married to Kathy for over 32 years. Together they have 5 kids and 5 grandkids. He loves activities that bring him outdoors - mountain biking, downhill skiing, hiking, camping. He's also lived overseas for 6+ years (both Asia and Europe) and loves to experience new things through friendships with people of different cultures.
