We Have Lift Off!

It’s Friday February 26. For those of you who have been following our journey, you should know what this means.

After 6 months of work and 17 Thank You cards later, it’s time to say goodbye.

To be honest I couldn’t have asked for a better company to start my career at. The people I met and things I learned were priceless.

One of my favorite quotes is, never apologize for walking away from a relationship that is holding you back from being the best version of yourself.

Unfortunately the structure of the corporate environment I was in, didn’t allow me to be the best version of myself.

I wasn’t doing particularly well at my job, and I lost all the confidence I once had in myself. It took me a while to get out of the slump.

Instead of turning to Prozac or a therapist I found an amazing group of Entrepreneurs in the Cincinnati area who run a group called Continuous Web. After one night of networking with like-minded entrepreneurs I was bursting with energy and inspiration. I could barely sleep that night, and I woke up the next morning still buzzing from the interaction.

It turns out I wasn’t a failure in life! I was being forced to play a game that I wasn’t built to play. (picture Yao Ming trying to become a world-class horse jockey) I don’t want everyone to quite their job.

However, I do encourage anyone who wants more out of their work and life to begin taking steps to go in that direction. Whichever direction that energy may lead you.

“Easier said then done” you say. I agree. 

Here’s to the first step.

  1. Well, I will lift a glass to you tonight. Congrats on starting a new journey. I’m sure there will be times of hardship and struggle but at the end of the day, you’ll be doing what you’re passionate about, and that’s what makes this all worth it. So I say: Go get ’em boys!

  2. Yao Ming the jockey, priceless
