Choosing to run my own business stemmed from my desire to explore roads less traveled in life.  I could see that there were other career options at that stage in my life, but those other choices felt too obvious and commonplace, and I was drawn to the idea of doing something unique and challenging.  Years of running the business have changed my outlook on many things.  One powerful lesson is that despite all effort, sometimes I will need to ask for help.  I have been fortunate to have incredible employees, clients, family, and friends, who have all been there for me over the years.
