How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
“Just being involved with sports, having coaches around, being accountable to a coach, as well as to my team members, was a big part of helping me grow into what I am doing now. Later on, with this background, I really dialed into educating myself, once sports were not as big a part of my life.”
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
“When I first went to college, I was not there very long. It just wasn’t a good fit. I jumped out of college and went right into the working world. That’s when I got introduced to personal development. I started to understand about being an adult. I learned how thinking about my goals and practicing what I was learning would affect me as a person.”
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“People allow fear to dictate what they’re going to do next. Fear of the unknown causes them to allow outside influences to scatter their vision. Too many people don’t have clarity of vision of what they want to be. You have to sit down and give yourself the space to decide what you want your life to look like. When you look at successful people, their success didn’t happen by accident. They didn’t wake up one day as billionaires. It takes having a design for your life to get to your end goal.”
