Two years is a long time, and yet it can pass before our eyes in a moment. Two years ago today I experienced the most devastating injury of my life. Breaking my leg was one of the most impactful and significant moments of my life. In some ways, it’s more meaningful to me than my birthday.
On January 22, 2017, I received the gift of rebirth.
This was the chance to reset my career and build a business. The chance to pause from the everyday hustle and learn what was truly important. …
Writing content for your brand isn’t always easy. Whether or not writing comes naturally to you, creating content that stands out in a crowded digital space comes with it’s own set of challenges.

In two days, it will be six months since I broke my leg while rollerskating. This wasn’t sort of break that they could slap a cast on and tell me to be on my way. I displaced left my ankle so badly that it was pointed 90 degrees to the left.

How many times a day do you read something online and think “huh, if I try that, perhaps I’ll be happier, healthier or more productive? Perhaps my business will grow?”
How often do we bookmark those articles or videos, never to return again?
Just this morning, the Internet (I say that as though it’s alive) had me wondering if I could successfully commit to swimming twice a week; writing for 15 minutes every day; mastering a third language…
