I first discovered my penchant to be an inspirational influence when I was 20 years old. I attended Skyline College in San Bruno, CA prior to moving on to a four-year university, and had been chosen to address my class in the valedictorian speech at our graduation.
That speech turned out to be a high point in my life for a number of years. Writing it made me feel alive. Practicing it excited me. And delivering the speech made me feel, even at that young age, that I was doing what I was supposed to be doing with my life.
I had been on an educational track to help people through a psychology major. When I moved on to San Francisco State University, I started to look at my major from a “practical” side. I saw that I would need to obtain a master’s degree to be able to really earn a living. I was eager to get out of school and start working, and made the decision to change my major to business.
While my business degree did much to support what grew to become a successful marketing career, the feeding of my soul and the discovery of what I am really here to do has suffered.
The goal of my blog here is to share wisdom that I have gained from everyday experiences that has led me to find a greater sense of peace.
Other efforts include my two inspirational books about career change, Inner Architect: How to Build the Life You Were Designed to Live and Unleashing Your Soul, which were products of my resignation from my corporate marketing career in 2005.
Thank you for stopping by.
