About Spencer In This Episode

Spencer Howell is currently the president of Howell Rescue Systems, a family business that is entering its third generation. Working alongside his sister and father, Spencer has navigated the challenges of both business and family relationships, with the support and guidance of his father. Before joining the family business, Spencer majored in business in college and was a skilled baseball player. After college, he participated in AmeriCorps, where he worked with various nonprofits and gained experience in modeling and firefighting.

However, his father's increasing stress in the business led Spencer to return and explore the possibility of taking it over. Recognizing the need for a new leadership style as the business grew, Spencer sought the assistance of a culture coach named Tom Rubins. After working together for several months, Tom recommended Spencer to Wayne Herring, with whom Spencer has worked for over a year and four months. Spencer is grateful for the opportunity to learn from his father and is dedicated to continuing the growth and success of Howell Rescue Systems.





Coaching is an investment of time and money. It’s intense work that required you to be focused on your own personal and business growth. 



Groups of business owners who come together to learn, share encouragement and push one another toward new levels of greatness.



Your team needs intentional time away for training. Come to the farm to gain clarity, connection, and a path forward.



Book club is a great way to try out the network to see if it is a fit for you. Give it a try this month - it’s free and fun. Plus, you'll learn a lot from the book and conversation!



To say that I get it is an understatement. I have lived and worked through the good times and bad as a business owner, husband, parent and provider.

I grew up with strong role models who had entrepreneurship running through their blood. I learned from them - the good and the bad. But all of that didn’t stop me from making my own set of mistakes. I still had to make and learn from my own, sometimes catastrophic, errors of judgement.

Now, I am building a business just like you. I am proud of the growth I’ve accomplished within myself and my business. I also know that my growth is a journey, not a destination and that I need mentors, team members, coaches, and trusted friends to help me stay the course.
