Seeing Your Career As An Adventure

In my 20-year professional career, I have had many different adventures, as well as my share of misadventures. People, good luck, and well-timed opportunities have all played a role in the overall trajectory of my professional life, and much of it in ways I couldn't have dreamed when I was first starting out. 

These twists and turns have allowed me to work for startups, meet my idols, travel the world speaking at conferences, start my own company, and a few years ago, they even allowed me to travel around the entire country for a year, working and living with my family in an RV, ultimately going to all of the lower 48 states.

I want to tell you more about that trip, and everything it taught me about seeing my career--and life--as an adventure. I hope that hearing a little about my adventures will inspire you in your own, help you to see your career in a different light, and encourage you to join in on your own adventure already in progress.
