Author Ric Hinkie has been seeking out highly-successful people in the energy industry for the last 10 years to uncover trends on what makes them stand out.

He walked away with an article for the Midwest Energy Association called, “Fast Forward your Career,” and an appreciation for Rivard’s willingness to continue learning.
