Turning dreams into reality: In 2014 I turned my life upside down in pursuit of happiness and started my own business.
At the time I had no idea what I was doing or where it was going to take me. All I knew to be true was that I wanted to positively impact the lives of others, be more humanly connected and live more in each moment.
At the time I also had a dream that one day my work and its impact would be validated.
I would write an article for the esteemed Harvard Business Review on how I was helping make people’s lives happier in my business.
Again, I had no idea what it looked like, how it would happen, but I wrote that dream down and popped it away in a drawer.
In this podcast, I share with you how this small act of writing down a crazy dream with no clear plan on how to make it happen made it happen.
This is not one of those bullshit overnight success stories of how I made millions and how I can teach you to do the same.
Instead, it's a story of persistence and experimentation that evolved into the creation of my dream business and life.
This story is designed to inspire you to put your own dream in a drawer now and to take one small action that moves you closer towards it today!
