Taking a risk and trying something new can be life’s greatest reward. After coming to the realization that I couldn’t see myself spending the entirety of my career in corporate america, it was time to make a change both personally and professionally. Taking a trip and hitting the open road opened my eyes to the possibility of a fresh start. Reading the book Million Dollar Consulting left me inspired to go into business for myself; to be my own boss; and to become a business leader in a place that I call home.
