Creating Goals for a Long-term Vision

Creating Goals for a Long-term Vision

With the start of a new year, a lot of us tend to feel more refreshed and motivated to bring on new goals and often times, a new year resolution. But…as most of us know pretty well, the new goals and new year resolutions don’t last that long–in fact, most people who set these new goals tend to lose focus within the first few weeks of January.

I’ve never been one to necessarily set a new goal or resolution at the start of a new year for that specific reason–because they often don’t last and it’s focused only on accomplishing a goal, rather than an underlying purpose. I often get asked how I am consistently performing and executing my goals and I thought I’d share on this post my insights on goal setting and my strategic approaches to achieving the life I want to live.

Balancing an 8-5 Sales Job While Still Being an Entrepreneur

“In the end, living a fulfilled life means to me being able to have the freedom (in all aspects) to choose. To have choices and options.”

Very recently, I started a new job at a Fortune 200 company in a sales position–while still maintaining the growth and flow of my business Elite Skate Wear, as well as my various projects including the Young & Ambitious Podcast, this blog, and overall content creation on my creative platforms. A notion I often hear is that it is bad to balance multiple jobs outside of a corporate job, especially if it’s related to entrepreneurship (or just being your own boss). In fact–I was blatantly told by a CEO [of a medium sized business] that it is a red flag that I am an entrepreneur and that it is difficult for me to work at another corporate job while being a business owner.

Well guess what? I’m doing exactly what I was told I shouldn’t/couldn’t do. Continue reading “Balancing an 8-5 Sales Job While Still Being an Entrepreneur”

Planning For A Life On Your Own Terms While in College

As a recent college graduate (or not so recent anymore) this past May 2019, I’ve been asked pretty frequently how and what I did in college to prepare for the stage of my life I am in now. The four years fly by extremely fast and next thing you know, you are done with school (maybe even for good) and now you’re stressed about hitting the real world. Reality sucks, but there also so many opportunities to plan ahead and get ahead of the game while you’re still in school and I share all about my personal tips and what I did leading up to the point of graduation.

After reflecting on my incredible time in Stockholm, Amsterdam, and Hamburg, I internally realized that I feel more grateful for three specific aspects in my life.
