Self-Authored Human

photo-1455390582262-044cdead277a

I have been thinking about the concept of what it means to be a self-authored human.

There are two kinds of people: People who are writing their own story and those who are merely reporting on the narrative they have been given.

Think of one person you know who is the author of their own story and another one who is at the effect of their story; it doesn't take much to see that these are two very different lives.

If you have been watching my videos and reading my articles, then you probably k…

Things from the Past

I want to share with you some things from the past. 

Wall telephones. Dial-up modems. Video rental stores. Phone booths… I bet if we kicked back on the couch for an evening, we could come up with a really long list. 

Here's what's interesting. There was a time when all these things were the very best society could do. They were just a part of life as we knew it and, at the time, pretty much everyone except for the real visionaries thought to themselves… "This is as good as it gets." 

But you …

Change the System

Having once worked in corporate and eventually becoming a coach. The question I get asked from time to time is, "Why didn't you stick it out in the corporate world and make a change from within?"

There are many paths I could have taken, but I choose to create a new path. Instead of working against the current paradigm, I decided to create what I believe is a healthier, more sustainable paradigm, invite everyone to join me, and let that be my critique of the current system. 

Now that's not for …

Top of the Mountain

I'm working on my first book right now. It's the story of what "inside out transformation" looks like for the business world. It's for people who feel like something is missing in their lives and are asking themselves... "Shouldn't my life feel more fulfilling than this?" 

I feel passionate about one of the ideas I'm working on that involves the metaphor of a mountain, working hard to get to the top, and realizing that the struggle wasn't worth the cost.

I see this a lot in the business world.…

If you are a biotech leader, I have an important message for you. I know what it means to be deeply immersed in biotech. I know what it means to feel proud of making a difference in the health of countless lives. 

I also know what it is to be inside of a corporate system that is supporting you AND, at the same time feeding off of you.

I have been a financial leader for an expansive drug portfolio where I worked on 13 different drugs.

Finding Balance

I have been a suit-wearing executive, sitting in conference rooms, overseeing budgets of billions of dollars, and yet if anyone had seen the tattoo I now have on my forearm, it would have changed everything, and no, not for the better.

I have played the game of being a corporate conformist for most of my life. I was always struggling to see where I fit in. And yet, when I stopped trying to fit in, is when I finally felt most alive. That's been the evolution of my journey, going from just wantin…

Peaks and valleys are just a natural part of the human experience. If you have been on the peaks, then you also know you can end up in the vall…
