It was only a few years, but that’s all it needs to take. Consistent, focused, growth. The battle doesn’t happen in a crash diet, little progress comes in an instant. But add up those instances, day by day, month by month, year by year. Each day is another little victory, marching closer to the goal. A river cuts through stone with persistence.
I think back to this man — how did I expect to properly lead my team when I couldn’t lead myself away from eating a whole pizza? How could I perform at an elite level while my body suffered?
This took discipline with failures along the way. 2 steps forward and 1 step back. But I was no longer willing to tolerate a life characterized by acid reflux, exhaustion, and insecurity.
Progress made ✅ Onward!
And then it clicks: you lost your way. And the gears start to turn again. And the fire begins to burn. And massive deals start to close. And you meet people who expand your world farther than you could imagine. And you wake up every day to live life with passion and integrity.
I’m back. Like I never left.
A journal and a dream. Lately, I’ve stopped thinking of dollar signs and focused on value. Stopped living on margins and started dreaming of passion. Stopped leveraging the take-back and began plotting the give. Success ultimately comes from a place of peace and joy — I’m finding mine. Big things coming 👊🏼
It’s so easy to send a text. But as the world has developed, some things have stayed the same. In business I’ve learned that there’s no way to get things done like getting on a call. It can be awkward, stressful, or feel like a waste of time. But if you want something finished, a text simply won’t cut it. #makethecall
Highs, lows, and everything in between. Happy to share one of the fastest ascents in the e-commerce world, @sockpapi and I had some help from @iamnickshackelford and @commonthreadcollective. Put up over $8M in about a month. A wild ride, and the company soaring to new heights now. Beyond proud of the team.
Huge thanks to @facebook for recognizing @gopupsocks as one of its biggest 2017 success stories, in between @wework and Tropicana. We’ve come a long way, and we’re just getting started!
