Why I built this website

In 2015 I started up a website design and digital marketing business with one of my closest friends. Business really picked up after a couple of years and we retained several respectable clients.

While our venture grew, I discovered that this lifestyle I'd developed wasn't serving me well. Heartbreak set in when I discovered that what I'd worked so hard to establish left me isolated and resentful of the obligations I'd sold myself into.

Depression, loneliness, and self-loathing became standard operating procedure — My life was running away from me but I couldn't move despite having big dreams and aspirations.

I'm starting over now, accepting my failings and shortcomings while commiting to leading a life of health, creativity, and fulfilment that has been at the forefront of my desires since discovering the self-help world as a teenager.

The road ahead isn't clear and it doesn't guarantee my salvation. However, I know now that I must balance my needs for creative expression, relationships, learning, and service.
