Ages ago, I quit my cubicle job to go for my dream of being a songwriter. The number of people who predicted my failure was stunning.
Well, I logged over 500,000 road miles, performed about 1653 shows, made 7 CD’s, an award winning DVD, performed on stage with peeps like John Mayer, Nanci Griffith and Los Lobos. I even had two dance companies choreograph ballets to my tunes.
But none of it compares to who I became along the way. I created a record label, built a team, made a business.
Then I reinvented myself and built a second business called Uplevel You and started changing lives of entrepreneurs and creatives who – more often than not – feel like they just aren’t cut out for this shit. They are. They just need someone who has walked in their shoes to show them how. That would be me.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
