Helping students have a better impact through leadership, service, and entrepreneurship
For the better part of the last decade, I've been starting companies and helping people launch their big idea into the world. I know how exciting, powerful, meaningful, tiring, and stressful starting a company or leading people can be. (Read my full bio here.)
And now, I spend most of my time helping students and world-changers make the most of their leadership experience, whether in college, in the workplace, or at home. To me, life it's about leadership; it's about impact. Thankfully, leadership can be a great vehicle to get us to that destination.
That's why I tell stories. Whether I'm speaking on stage or writing on my blog, I think that leaders tell stories. And when we each have a chance to tell our stories, we have an opportunity to motivate others to follow. I believe that leadership starts with a story and ends with a commitment.
I know that at heart, we're all looking to make an impact, to leave our mark on the world by writing our legacy on the hearts of others. And whether you're a student, entrepreneur, leader, dreamer, parent, or artist, I bet you have a big idea or are trying to solve a big problem. In that quest, we often start to sacrifice the things we care about and need the most: time with family, friendships, recreation, artistic expression, and our own sanity.
