From October to October

It’s been almost a year since I last pressed publish on this website.

Yikes…I’m still here!

A lot has happened since October 2013 – I left my job at HubSpot. I moved from Boston to New York City. I started a marketing agency. I got married!

I also traveled to Italy, ran my first marathon, and joined a rock climbing gym.

It’s been a wild and amazing year.

While I’ve written regularly online for the better part of a decade, either for myself or on behalf of clients, I still feel uncomfortable pressing the publish button.

Discomfort can lead to some amazing places. I think about all the times in my life when I’ve felt uncomfortable – from studying abroad in Nepal to public speaking or starting my own business.

I could wax philosophical on the many events and experiences that have caused my heart to skip a beat, my stomach to lurch, and beads of sweat to accumulate on my forehead. But it’s shortly after those times of discomfort when I’ve grown the most, where I’ve felt the most alive.

As 2014 draws to a close, I pledge to embrace discomfort more wholeheartedly, to publish more of my thoughts and to (hopefully) inspire you to do the same.
