300+Hour Advanced Leadership Training, 2017, 300
Intensive Training, 2016, 20
In 2016, I quit.
I quit my job in corporate America.
I quit accepting life at face value.
I quit allowing people tell me how to spend the brief time I have on this earth.
I promised myself that from now on, I would live a life that would make the only person who mattered proud: me.
I realized, if I could do that, then maybe I could move beyond my own cloud of misery and see clearly enough to benefit not only myself but those around me as well. I’m not perfect. Old habits die hard, as they say, but here I am – in the practice of living. One day at a time.
The Strala Community, along with Tara and Mike, have been irreplaceable for me on this journey. So many inspiring, confident and beautiful people are making their own way and living their lives with grace, strength, energy, and ease. I feel so lucky to be along for the ride.
I’m only starting out on this next chapter, but here’s where I’ve been so far:
In November 2016, EM Workshop LLC was born. I’ve been working as an independent consultant, providing digital design and marketing services to small agencies and business owners, mostly woodshops in upstate New York and a few Strala guides. When I’m not designing websites for others, I’m having fun building Arrive Well, a community and online retailer that sells modern, sustainable, travel-friendly goods.
You will otherwise find me traveling as much as I can afford to, guiding yoga classes and playing in my local ceramics studio.
