I was lucky enough at young age to learn a valuable lesson – you can achieve the life you desire if you stay committed to your vision.
One of my best friends taught me this.
At a young age, Rob Dyer lost his mom, 2 grandmas and a close friend to cancer in the span of 1.5 years.
Rob decided to take matters into his own hands. He assembled a group of friends and launched Skate4Cancer. An organization that began with a skateboarding marathon from Los Angeles, California to his hometown of Newmarket, Ontario.
Skating over 8,000km and raising funds for Princess Maraget we accomplished what many said was impossible. Especially when organized by a group of measly high school kids.
This was the beginning of Skate4Cancer and the start of having one of the greatest mentors I could ever imagine.
In July of 2015, I realized I was on the wrong life trajectory. I felt disconnected from my purpose and wasn’t living the life I imagined for myself.
Following in Rob’s footsteps I decided to take responsibility for the life I was living – or not living.
In September 2015, I launched my blog and podcast called Your Next Chapter.
My goal was simple, to provide myself and those around me with the resources to create the life and lifestyle we imagine for ourselves.
As millennials, most of us don’t want to be stuck in 9 to 5 jobs, working for something we don’t believe in and feeling the best years of our lives are passing away in a cubicle.
I knew there had to be a better way. And so I decided to run a little social experiment with my own life.
I asked myself… Can I create a life for myself doing the things I love and get paid for it? Can I create a living for myself while being more nomadic? Can I become a source of inspiration for millennials to go after their life? Or am I just being foolish?
At this stage in my life, I would say that all the above are possible.
Since leaving my corporate job, I’m financially in a better position, having paid off all my student loans, visa debt and have accumulated more wealth than I previously had.
I’ve had more flexibility to travel and freedom of time.
Emotionally and spiritually I’m in a much better place. Coming forward about being bisexual on my podcast has been highly liberating and has allowed me to live in greater alignment with myself.
Though I still don’t have all the answers with my sexuality I continue to move forward and support others by sharing what I’ve learned on my journey.
I believe once we have clarity with our inner self and purpose we can put the gas pedal down to accelerate in our life.
All my blog posts and podcasts are meant to serve you in that exact manner. To support you in gaining more clarity with yourself and the path you aim to execute on.
