This journey started for me the way it started for many of my clients.
I was experiencing a lot of success--and I was truly unhappy.
After graduating from Chicago Booth in 2014, I joined a business partner to launch a restaurant concept in Chicago.
We opened four locations in three years, grew the business 10x, and hired over 40 employees.
I got engaged to an amazing woman. We bought and moved into a house with our puppy, Islay.
My life was full of friends and family and a cool job. And I wasn't happy. I kept looking for more.
I added volunteer work and a new workout regimen. I tried starting a blog and launching several social media profiles.
I tried to do more and more and more and more and more.
None of it was making me feel any more satisfied, joyful, or worthy of the life that I was living.
So, I got serious about better understanding what was holding me back. What was making me struggle.
I was surprised to learn that it was me.
I spent too much time being preoccupied with what I didn't have.
I held and expressed no gratitude for the wonderful things I had in my life.
I feared the future rather than welcoming what amazing possibilities it could hold.
So, on a prayer, I left my job to figure things out.
The journey was not linear.
I fucked up more times than I can count. My wife can verify that.
But, now, I just feel happy.
I love my life and my work and my family and my friends.
I accomplished more meaningful, more challenging goals this year: I published my first book and completed an Ironman.
I have been able to help alleviate people of their shame, guilt, and frustration about life.
