Boo boo, below is a list of three very important questions, and I want you to do your best to answer them rapid-fire style for the most authentic response. Got it?

Here we go:

  • What’s your origin story? 
  • Why do/did you want to start a business?
  • If you only had 25 years left in this life, what would you want to do with it?

I’m guessing that the first two were pretty easy to answer. You’ve probably been asked those questions multiple times before.

But I’m willing to bet that the third question threw you for a loop. *Don’t worry, it used to stump me, too.*

For almost half of my life, I was too scared to admit what I wanted to do.

I worried about what he’d say, what she’d think, and told myself I’d never be good enough to succeed.

>>Then my mom was diagnosed with brain cancer…and everything changed.<<

It made me realize just how precious life really is.

Her cancer diagnosis prompted me to drop out of law school and marry my best friend on the beaches of Hawaii so my mom could be part of the special day.

*And in case you’re wondering, my mama is still kickin’ today against all odds because she is a FIGHTER!*

So, when my newlywed husband asked his law school dropout wife, “If you could do one thing for the rest of your life and be happy, what would it be?”, I knew the answer immediately.

I wanted to be a photographer. 

There were a few problems with this answer, starting with the fact that I didn’t have a camera or any photography know-how.

But I did the dang thing anyway…because I WANTED to.

>>Life is too short not to say what you want, and want what you say.<<

With a lot of hard work (and the help of my husband), I went from not even owning a camera to one of the world’s most socially influential photographers in just six years. 

Now boo, I don’t bring this up to brag. I bring this up as testament and proof that you do not have to be good at what you do.

You have to just do the dang thing. 

>>At the end of the day, life is meant to be lived, so live it in a way that makes you happy.<<

So friend, let me ask you one more question: What are you going to do with this one crazy and beautiful life you’ve been given?

I wouldn’t say we were business nerds but my husband just sent me a Slack message asking me to call him.
