Hi. My name is Tim, and I develop lifelong leaders.

Who are the lifelong leaders?

They are the people who understand what it means to take responsibility, develop relationships, and achieve results.

I primarily work with student leaders. The experiences, teachable moments, and mistakes you encounter as a student leader can prepare you for all kinds of leadership opportunities in the future. Over the years, I’ve developed and shared my philosophy of lifelong leadership – leadership you nurture and grow every day of your life.

On this site, you can drink leadership nitro out of a firehose. There’s resources, tools, and articles here to help you (both student leaders and those who work with them) make the most of your leadership growth opportunities.


Wondering where to start? Start with yourself! Then read this post and then this post. I try to post two or three articles each week on this site. My articles focus on personal growth, leadership development, and productivity. You can receive each post by email by clicking here or add me to your RSS reader by clicking here.

Who is Tim Milburn?

I live in Boise, Idaho – the best kept secret in the United States (so much more than potatoes). I have four kids: boy, girl, boy, girl. They are the best part of my life. I’m engaged to Angie Hattler – the woman who inspires me to live each day to it’s fullest potential!

I work at Northwest Nazarene University as the Director of Campus Life. This means I get to continue to go to college but I don’t have to go to class. I spend my days hanging out with exceptional students and creating community.

When I’m not with my own students, I spend time with other people’s students. I get to train student leaders at a variety of conferences, retreats, and workshops. I love speaking at summer camps, talking to students about faith and their own formation. If you’re interested in having me speak to your students, visit my speaking page.

I wrote my first online leadership article on January 12, 2005. Since that time I’ve produced a lot of different resources. If you’d like to take a look at my books, ebooks, or leadership tools, visit my resources page.

I’m a Mac addict. I’m a P90X and P90X2 grad. I dabble in graphic design. Cut me and I’ll bleed Starbucks. And more than anything else, I love a good story.

There are a lot of different ways to get ahold of me. I list most of them on my contact page.
