I thought I knew what wealth and health meant. I thought wealth was the highest number in my bank accounts and that health was the lowest number on the scale.
In other words: wealth = money and health = skinny. I came to these conclusions throughout my life - from family, friends, colleagues, and media. From society, culture, and prevailing trends. These pervasive beliefs formed unconsciously and subconsciously, rooted in a fundamental lack of self-worth and disconnect from my true desires.
Like you, I am complex, nuanced, and ever-evolving. Like you, I've experienced personal tragedy and personal triumph. Like you, I seek more. More meaning and more fulfillment on my terms. I've learned how to achieve that by redefining words and reconstructing concepts. By shifting my perspective, harnessing my intentions and activating a constructive mindset. By reconnecting with my Soul, and my deepest, driving desires.
Personally, I've overcome multiple health issues including a chronic autoimmune disorder since I was 16 years old, eating disorders and disorderly diets, and hormonal issues that affected me physically, psychologically and emotionally. I began to explore meaning and mindfulness in my 20's but it wasn't until I made a fateful decision to leave a 'good life' that changed my path forever. I have been slowly digging my Soul out from under my ego ever since.
Professionally, I am an entrepreneur and have worked in finance, technology, real estate, and media. I've started companies, developed brands and launched careers. I've bootstrapped, crowdfunded, raised venture capital, and angel invested. I've "lost it all". I haven't hit the jackpot. I fall, get back up and try again. And again. And again. With resilience, we can reach the other side of any situation.
