The Code of the Sixers

At SixthDivision, we have six core values. These values govern how everything operates at SixthDivision. We live and breathe these values.

Know where you're going

“In the absence of clearly defined goals, we become strangely loyal to daily trivia, until ultimately we become enslaved by it.”

– Robert Heinlein

Do the work

“On the field of the Self stand a knight and a dragon. You are the knight. Resistance is the dragon. The only interaction possible between the knight and the dragon is battle.”

– Steven Pressfield

Figure it out

“Everything around you that you call life was made up by people who are no smarter than you. And you can change it.”

– Steve Jobs

Create awesome

“Do what you do so well they will want to see it again. And bring their friends.”

Walt Disney

Improve your awesome

“The important thing is this: to be able, at any moment, to sacrifice who you are for who you can become.”

Eric Thomas

Be a force of nature

“The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant.”

Jim Rohn

Brad Martineau

Chief Baller

Word. My name is Brad Martineau (as you can see above…). Couple things you should know about me. I’m married with five kids, I love playing basketball, I’m addicted to fitted hats, and I’m pretty into the whole entrepreneur thing.

Back in the day I was the sixth employee at Infusionsoft and I spent over six years leading the product development efforts as a key member of the Infusionsoft leadership team. I had a blast and learned a ton while getting to rub shoulders with many very highly successful entrepreneurs.

I guess my specialty is simplifying the complex and bridging the gap between theory and execution. I love teaching and helping people understand difficult concepts. Nothing drives me nuts more than seeing someone NOT do something because they don’t know how.

I launched SixthDivision to provide Infusionsoft users a better source of coaching, training, and done for you services.

Corey Thomas

Former Infusionsoft employee. Music lover. Huge nerd (as in dresses up like Tony Stark with a homemade arc reactor for any Avenger’s movie). Bet you didn’t see that one coming.

Corey Thomas

The Rockstar

How’s it going? I’m Corey. I am a marketing expert, music lover, and giant nerd.

I’ve spent the better part of my career working with companies like Zappos, Michael Gerber, Glazer Kennedy and others to help them better implement marketing automation. Now I get to pass that experience along to our Sixth Division customers to help them grow their businesses.

When I’m not working, I am spending time with my lady, my family, and my friends. There is also a good chance that I am playing video games, cosplaying as Tony Stark, or playing basketball or golf. Yes I have been to a Star Wars convention and I am personal friends with Boba Fett. Troublesome clients usually end up frozen in carbonate.

The Gladiator

What’s up? I’m Jake, I’m married to my smokin’ hot wife who is my rock and keeps me on my toes. We love to travel to anywhere with a beach, and our favorite place so far has been Thailand.

I moved here from Utah (I don’t like the cold) and worked in the mortgage industry. It was rewarding helping people find their dream home, but there’s not a lot of creativity in that field which is why I’m happy to be a part of the wolf pack at SixthDivision.

I enjoy playing guitar, drawing, being a closet nerd, and pushing myself at the gym. Life is all about balance and the daily hustle. Every day I get an opportunity to be a better version of the person I was yesterday.

Kendall Walker

Chief Evangelist

Hey there! My name is Kendall. I’m married with five kids…oh wait, that’s Brad. Let me start over. I’m married with one daughter and two furry kiddos.

I graduated from ASU with a BA in Journalism, and a double minor in Business and Communication. I originally started out doing the whole broadcast thing, but quickly realized that wasn’t my cup of tea. It was more like a gross cup of coffee. I’ve been working in marketing and sales since then, and wouldn’t have it any other way.

I’m pretty much the queen of fantasy football. I dare you to try to beat me. You will never see me drink water out of a straw. Ever. It tastes way too weird that way. I can also recite all 50 states in alphabetical order. I’ll show you if you’re lucky.

Scott Richins

The Professor

Did a little of everything while working for Infusionsoft for 6 years. Married, with his first little man on the way. Connoisseur of tech, software, and all things Apple. Lover of nature and epic vacations with his wife.

Scott Richins

The Professor

Yo! I’m Scott Richins, lover of all things tech (primarily Apple products) and all things work. No seriously, I’m the classic definition of a work-a-holic. I’m a recovering “high-fiver”, which creates some awkward moments in
this new “fist bump” culture.

Back in my college days, I was a sleep-deprived kid studying Mechanical Engineering and surviving on Taco Bell and Pop-tarts. My buddies and I had an ongoing joke when assignments got ridiculous – “Shoulda gone business!” We said it all too often. I pressed on into grad school, until about 10 min into my first class when finally I said “Nope! Gonna go business.” It’s been a crazy ride ever since and one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Working with entrepreneurs and helping them find their success is where it’s at for me. My gift lies in designing systems, processes, and training; I get energized when I have new problems to solve, new content to learn, and new people to help.

When I’m not working I’m spending time with my wife. She’s gorgeous, smart, and brings the party to my by-the-book ways. I’m pretty much the luckiest man ever.

Taylor McArthur

The Locksmith

Hi! I’m Taylor McArthur. Google my name and you’ll find a talented Canadian track and field star. That’s not me (dude blows up my google news alerts though). Scroll down a bit and and you’ll see that I’m an Arizona native, married to a beautiful and talented woman, and father to the cutest little dude you’ve ever seen.

My path to Sixth has been a windy one and made pit stops at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, a couple US Senate and Congressional offices, the AZ Senate campaign trail, and the high-rise construction industry.

I’ve always been concerned with the “Why” behind whatever I do and here at SixthDivision we never forget that we’re here to help entrepreneurs build better businesses so they can enjoy life as they see fit. Pretty cool, right?

Work is fun, but my heart is always at home with Lindsey and Brooks – playing peek-a-boo, strolling through the park, and trying to teach him to say “Dada.”

Hey guys, my name is Alan. I’m husband to an amazing wife and father to coolest little dude on the planet. I’m a pretty easygoing guy that loves spending time with family, being active, sports, and movies. I’m not a big fan of being stuck in neutral, gotta keep moving forward. I believe that every day is an opportunity to learn and grow and I want to make the most of it.

I have a BS in IT with a concentration in Business Systems Analysis. I enjoy figuring out how things work, breaking them, and then rebuilding them to work better. Can’t is my least favorite word in the dictionary. I love serving and helping others succeed. I’m excited for the opportunity to help entrepreneurs reach levels of success that until now were unimaginable. Let’s take it to the next level!

Clint Hosman

Executionist

Howdy, I’m Clint, father of two girls, husband to a wife who doesn’t know the meaning of no, and I like keeping life as simple as possible, right down to my clothing, tee shirt and jeans, all day, everyday. Lets take something complicated and make it usable!

I love working with clients to translate their dreams on to the canvas of the worlds best sales and marketing software built specifically for small business. After two years working at Infusionsoft I made the jump to Sixth Division because come on, who wouldn’t want to work with this line up? I have an MBA with an emphasis in global management, so if in addition to your marketing needs, if you happen to have a globe or two hanging around and need them managed, I’m your man.

When I’m not at work I spend time preparing to scare boys my girls will some day want to date. I run, mountain bike, travel, all that outdoorsy kind of stuff you would expect from a man with a beard.

Hey there, I’m Jake. I am the father to two amazing boys who are 6 and 2. I somehow have been able to to keep my wife Sara from going crazy for over 10 years now.

I keep myself as busy as possible. I spend time with my family, running Disney Marathons, and traveling. I direct, teach, and perform improv comedy.

I am a super nerd and you can expect to see me in a Star Wars shirt every day of the week. I am your one stop if you need information on Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel, DC, or BIG watches. I generally sit on 5-10 panels at Phoenix Comicon.

I love helping people achieve their dreams. As a former Infusionsoft employee and user, I want to help you get the most out of your system while making it easier for you to run your business.

Jeff Shatswell

Sensei

What’s up?! I’m Jeff – most of my time these days is spent raising 5 kids with my beautiful wife Ginette. I say “with”, however between work and running the kids to and from various soccer venues, we pretty much just throw each other high-fives on those rare occasions our paths cross.

I love being a dad! I also enjoy reading, cooking, and just relaxing with the family.

After graduating college, I spent 5 years with Sandvik Special Metals, a large-scale manufacturing plant, making titanium and zirconium tubing. This was a valuable experience for a SoCal boy thinking he was pretty smart. If you have never had the privilege of directing union employees…add that to your bucket list!

I quickly realized I needed much more; I needed more rewarding work…more $$$. Time to chase the coveted dollar — Hello mortgage business!

I come to SixthDivision after spending 13 years in the mortgage biz, many of which were spent strategizing within Infusionsoft. I began with cold-calling and eventually worked my way up as part-owner of a large mortgage office.

Now, if you haven’t cold-called as a commissioned-only employee in a completely new role and industry while retaining the responsibility to feed and house your family…well, add that to your bucket list too!

I have now realized money is a means and not an end: Time for more rewarding work…more meaningful work! I am excited about this opportunity to spend time with entrepreneurs and to help them achieve more. Lets get to work!

Jordan Abaroa

Office Linebacker

Hey! I’m Jordan and I’m excited to meet you. I graduated from a small school, from the tundra that is Northern Minnesota with a degree in Marketing Communication. While getting my degree I played collegiate football, learned how to say “aboot”, and found an odd desire to start watching hockey.

I’m a normal American that starts my day by waking up and trying to get my Tasmanian devil of a son, Thane, ready for the day, kiss my beautiful wife, Taylor, goodbye, and head to work to make dreams come true. Yes, you can think of me as a bearded, jean-wearing fairy godmother if you would like. But all seriousness aside, I love coming to work and helping business make their dreams come true. But the best part of my day is spending time with my wife and son, and teaching him all the things my wife doesn’t want him to learn.

Mike Harris

The Curator

Mike here! You’ll find out very quickly that I have two daughters and two poodles because I talk about them a lot. Seriously, I’ll show you pictures. I’m also married to a crazy-talented interior designing wife who’s stuck with me for over 13 years. She’s my favorite adventure partner (and there have been A LOT of adventures). I grew up going to a lot of punk shows at The Nile and listening to local acts. Music plays a big part in my life. I’ve played guitar for 20 years, and build a lot of my own effects pedals.

I spent 4.5 years at Infusionsoft doing everything from tech support, to travelling the globe training customers, to super custom projects requiring a lot of integrations. I had an amazing time and gained my love for small businesses there, and now continue that passion at SixthDivision. My educational background spans many things: from marketing to graphic and web design.

I like solving problems because it means there’s room to improve and expand.

Erin Thomas

The Maestro

Hello everyone!  I’m Erin.  A few things to know about me….I love life! I LOVE meeting people and learning their story.  I’m a mom of four amazing kids and a grandma of one equally amazing little boy.  I love the outdoors — especially hiking and paddleboarding.  My favorite pastime is eating good food with family and friends!  I love to bake and cook…and if you’re around me long enough, I just might make you my famous chocolate chip cookies!


Back in the day I graduated from ASU with a degree in design, but I’ve tried my hand at a lot of different jobs all while being CEO for my family.  I’ve been a life-long multi-tasker and that’s when I do my best…that’s why my role  as “The Glue” here at SixthDivision is the perfect job for me.
So, when you find yourself walking in the door at SixthDivision, I’ll be the first to say hi…and maybe with a chocolate chip cookie in hand!

Melissa Risher

The Glue

Hi there, I’m Melissa. Originally from Utah, I am a graduate of Purdue University, GO Big Ten! I came to Arizona to get away from the snow and cold weather, like most people that live in this state.  Prior to SixthDivision I worked in a few different industries including Aviation, Sales, Property Management, and did Adoptions for kids in Foster Care.

I love to do yoga, the pilates reformer, lift, hike, read, bake, cook, clean and organize, try new restaurants and spend time with my friends and family. I am a big sports fan, football being my absolute fav.  Fall is the BEST time of year…. bring on the comfys, hot drinks, chili, friends, and football for the perfect weekend in this girl’s book.

I look through magazines from back to front, prefer odd numbers, peanut m&m’s are my vice, unless of course there are cookies or donuts in front of my face and I will happily be content with those too. I think retail therapy should be covered by insurance, yoga clothes ARE an acceptable outfit for any time of day or event, and ice cream is a food group that constitutes a meal. :o)

Matt Merrill

The Man Behind The Curtain

Hey there. My name is Matt. I’m a father of 3 wonderful kids and husband to a talented wife.

I’ve been in the Infusionsoft space for over 10 years now and have played many different roles ranging from phone support, to consultant, to programmer. I’ve spent the bulk of my career in the web development space creating web applications and websites.

I love the creation process. I have found that I enjoy creating and building tools that help people automate the mundane aspects of their life and business so that they can find time to spend doing things that they love.

After my day at the office, I enjoy spending time with my family playing games, watching movies, and battling Darth Vader (my 4 year old son). I love being in the outdoors, working with my hands and tinkering with little side projects.
