We help people change their lives

I had a quarter-life crisis at 21. Everyday I saw people who were blindly accepting a life that didn't inspire them, forever counting the days till the weekend and the weeks until their next vacation. But I looked at life with this sense of urgency -- there were so many things that I want to do and see and accomplish, that I was scared to waste a single day.

So I sat down and seriously thought about what I wanted my life to look like. What kind of work inspired me. What kind of person I wanted to become -- I know, that's a lot to think about before your morning coffee but it was important to that I was strategically planning my life, the same way I would strategically plan my business.

Think about what you want your life to look like 12 months from now, and then do whatever it takes to achieve that. You're worth it.
