Ever been to one (or all) of these places in your career?

Slow and steady growth, year after year after year


After nearly 15 years (since March 1999) and speaking to over one million people, something magical is happening within a career.

Ever been to a place like this in your lifetime?

The place where you feel like:

  • an artist
  • unencumbered
  • unmotivated by title, status, rank, salary
  • on fire
  • work everyday as if your life depended on it
  • become a stranger with fear
  • marry possibility
  • inspire positive change
  • feel like you have finally arrived
  • and the next week, years, or maybe even decade (or second half) are your years to bloom

This is insane. Like the first day of first grade.

Real life in real time.
