Last week I had my picture put up on the wall at Lululemon (King of Prussia) and I’m honored. If I’m honest, I don’t care so much about the picture – I care about what it represents and that’s what this (short) blog is about. It’s been said that a picture is worth a thousand words and I hope that the words below inspire you to go after what you want most even if it feels hard.


The Words

Just two years ago I was working a job that I knew I didn’t want to be in, but I felt so stuck. The thought of betting on me scared me more than anything else and that made me sad. Through a series of events and thanks to a number of good people, I decided to take the risk and take ownership. The ride has been wild and it’s been worth it every step – the best part of being my own boss is choosing how and who I spend my time with. I’m grateful to build relationships with teams like Lululemon (KOP) who support me, encourage me and lift me up in all that I do; we go further together.

This picture represents what happens when you step into the unknown – it’s a reminder that saying “no” to what doesn’t align opens up endless opportunities to say “yes” to the things that do.

Each choice changes our course and when we pursue our full potential we often cross paths with others looking to do the same. Doors open when we decide to go after what we want and good things happen to those who make things happen. When I look at this picture I’m filled with gratitude and excited for what’s still to come because this is just the beginning. If you’d like to listen to how I got here, check out episode one of the podcast.


This blog is not me telling you to make a change; it’s me asking you to consider what life could look like if you do. Our time is fleeting and that fact makes it precious – this is a call to stop wasting it. The scariest thing (to me) is thinking about (future) regret and with that being said, here’s a quote…

The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry out their dream.”
