Holy shit… 2019 is almost at an end! I’m still trying to wrap my head around it.
Not only have I reached the end of my very first year in business, I’ve reached the end of a decade-long journey to get where I am today.
To close out this month, year, and decade on a high note, I thought it would be a nice full-circle moment to sit down with my good friend Rachel, a life and career coach and host of the Clarity on Fire podcast (where career and passion meet).
Let me tell you…
I’ve definitely had my ups and downs over the last decade (like most of us). And where I am today — living in Scotland, running my own business — is very different than where I was 10 years ago.
So, how did I end up quitting my job, moving to Scotland and starting a business?
That’s what Rachel and I are getting into in what she calls an Interview with a Normal Person.
WARNING: I’m such a f**king millennial and it definitely comes across in this conversation ? But hey… I’m 33 years old and I’m proud of my generation!

So here’s what Rachel and I talked about…
➡️ How lost, confused, and underwhelmed I felt in my first job post-college
➡️ The series of ill-fitting jobs and work environments I’ve endured over the years
➡️ How I went out on a limb and put my money where my mouth is, quite literally, to invest in my brother’s business
➡️ How I stayed patient and determined, despite plenty of failure, rejection, and crickets when starting my own business
➡️ My (and Rachel’s) advice for you, if you want the next decade to look very different than this one!
I had SO MUCH FUN recording this podcast.
Not only did it give me an opportunity to reflect on just how far I’ve come over the past 10 years, it made me feel SO GRATEFUL for the lessons I’ve learned and SO EXCITED to see what the future has in store!
Give it a listen here, on Rachel’s website, or wherever you get your podcasts!
After you listen, leave me a comment and let me know if my journey resonated with you!
I’d love to know your thoughts.
