Coffee, dreams, and jumping off a cliff

Five years ago this month, I was teetering on the edge.

Living off dwindling savings. Eating food from the care packages my mom sent me.

At an intersection between staying at the startup company where I had not been paid for 5 months...

Or moving into a bigger life.

I was at a juncture, not knowing which way to turn. But I felt like it was time to say goodbye.

Goodbye to working for "the man" - making other people's dreams come true.

Goodbye to long hours, no vacation, little pay, stressful bosses, and wondering "is this all there is?"

Goodbye to looking like I "had it all" on the outside and on the inside, feeling like I was stifled, unfulfilled and inauthentic.

It was time to say hello.

Hello to stepping forward into my dreams.

Hello to launching my own company, where I could live and work from anywhere, anytime, any day, any way (and so could my team!)

Hello to working with clients that I was passionate about, serving and delivering life-changing work that would change their businesses forever.

But I didn't know how.

Then someone told me about B-School with Marie Forleo. All I knew was, I needed results... fast.

I felt like I was crazy, not just taking a step into the unknown, but rather throwing myself off a cliff.

You are going to hear me talking a lot about B-School in February. Like a lot, a lot.

B-School was the pivotal catalyst that forever changed the trajectory of my life. And I want to share it with you, so you get the behind-the-scenes story of what it was really like launching my company, Appleseed Communications.

Spoiler alert: Appleseed Communications is turning 5 years old! *cue the birthday balloons* I beat the odds. (And you can, too.)
