At the height of the worst recession in over 70 years, I did something most people thought was "crazy…"
I asked my employer to lay me off.
Maybe it was "crazy" because I had a stable six-figure income and they had just offered me a promotion. I worked from home and had a great manager.
From the outside looking in, it sure looked "crazy." It felt crazy to me, and some of my colleagues even told me they were worried about me. At a much deeper level though, what was crazier was that I was living what felt like a lie.
My life was upside-down.
I thought it was "crazy" that I might miss being there while my son grew up…
I thought it was "crazy" that I was doing work that didn't feel inspired and aligned with my Divine purpose…
I thought it was crazy that my employer decided how much money I could earn and what my work was "worth…"
And I thought it was "crazy" that I didn't feel I was making a concrete difference in the world…
So I left it all behind.
It was one of the best decisions I ever made. It was frighteningly scary. And truly magical at the same time. My life is amazing, and five years ago I didn't imagine it turning out this way.
That's why when friends of mine share resources like these life coach training videos, I am passionate about sharing them. I cherish these opportunities to support others to make the courageous jump into a new and deeply fulfilling career, just like I did.
What does my life look like now?
Every day I wake up to the sound of *knock knock* at the door. My son comes in and we cuddle before I get him ready and take him to school.
When I get back, I meditate to center myself and prepare for the day. That supports me in creating resources that make peoples' lives better. I get on calls and coach people through their troubles. I enjoy looking for resources I can share with you that will make a difference in your life.
Then I pick up my son from school. Maybe I take him to an activity, an adventure, and on most days we play. Last night we had a wonderful pillow fight and he beat me senselessly. 🙂
After I lay him down for bed, sometimes I work some more. Maybe I watch a movie, read, or do some research for the best-selling fiction novel I'm writing.
That's my weekday routine.
Then usually about once a month (though lately it's been more frequently), my family takes care of my son while I take care of myself attend a spiritual retreat or program.
I look inward and learn more about who I am, why I'm here, and ultimately how I can serve you even more effectively as a consequence of who I am and continue to become.
It truly is an unexpected magical gift that I choose to be here each and every day with my son. Yes, being a full-time father and entrepreneur has it's own set of challenges. And I've had incredible support along the way both in terms of mentors, partners, and of course my incredible family and parents.
Leaving it all behind 5 years ago was about the least "crazy" thing I could have ever done.
In fact, it was in doing something so "crazy," so against my conditioning and comfort zones, that I found my true sanity…
And the gift of living in service to you. Each and every single day.
While I know this particular path of service to the world isn't for everybody…
(and I am deeply grateful to everybody who serves humanity no matter what their role)

So do you want to hear something truly "crazy"?
Due to life circumstances, recently I was at an event with my previous employer. I hadn't seen some of those people in the half decade since I left.
And one person's story really hurt my heart. To protect this person's privacy, I'll call him/her "Courtney."
Tomorrow I'll share with you Courtney's story, and why it hurt my heart to hear it…
P.P.S. On a more uplifting note..
Here's a picture of Christy and I last summer having a ball together!
See how much she's radiating love, inspiration, and joy? 🙂
Christy is a "crazy" bundle of delightful energy. You'll see it noticeably when you watch her videos.
Personally, I really like video #1 because Christy talks about a topic I'm VERY passionate about myself. 🙂
