AND I LIKE HELPING AMBITIOUS PEOPLE DO HARD THINGS.
I’ve been through some hard stuff myself, and I realize that what motivates people can be complex.
I’ve always dreamed big, wanted to make something of my life, and cared deeply about people. But I struggled with emotional suffering early in my life where I felt like I lacked a sense of purpose and didn’t know where to turn.
Totally clueless on what to do next, I simply started to explore and discovered an interest for all things related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Subjects that worked well for my sport of choice: auto-racing.
After moving from Seattle, WA to Charlotte, NC – I worked to refine my skills as an Engineer, Athlete and Entrepreneur. Finally, I felt like I found a sense of purpose and direction in my life, and I was proud of it.
My friends often poked fun at me for saying I should be a “motivational speaker and influencer”, but I found myself more interested in helping people solve real problems.
I believe that the phrase – “Find your purpose and do what your passionate about” – is complete bullshit. The cult of “purpose” is selling you this idea that you need to pick one thing to do with your career or life – anything but a 9-to-5 – and forcing this expectation that you’ll live a more deeply satisfied life.
I challenge conventional wisdom, and encourage people to find meaning in what they do today: a day-job, a side hustle, or risking it all to start a business – and do it with absolute pleasure. Meaning can manifest purpose without an expectation of what purpose actually is.
Today, I apply my experience as an Executive, Entrepreneur, and Athlete to help mentor people and businesses to maximize what they’re capable of.
