I've Walked The Path You're On
I built a successful career. I did the homework, got multiple degrees, and played by the “rules".
I was a senior director for a strategy consulting firm working with global companies you know and love. I taught at a major university in Chicago for a decade. I married the woman of my dreams, was blessed with two amazing children, and built a gorgeous custom home with a beautiful brick exterior and vaulted ceilings with rustic beams.
Then I made a major shift.
I left the security of my high-paying job.
My wife and I sold our family home.
We moved across the country.
And we did all of this while learning the good, bad, and ugly aspects of building a new business.
I have had clients cancel for no apparent reason, partnerships go sideways, and the best of intentions be misinterpreted. Ugh.
But I have also had the deeply satisfying experience of becoming the man I was meant to be. I understand what it means to create real value from nothing, to craft your world from the ground up, and to succeed against the odds. Most importantly, I’ve learned to do this in a way that allows me to do valuable and meaningful work with bright, big-hearted people while providing for my family.
This is all to say I’ve been on the path you’re on. I get the deep hunger you have within. I know what it’s like to be pulled towards becoming a bigger, bolder version of yourself. I get it.
