I am lucky to have achieved success in whatever I've gone after in my business career. I always put 100% into everything I do, which includes relationships. They aren't always easy but when you find that partner who also puts 100% in and you both have that special chemistry and passion for each other and life... then that's an amazing base.
I've succeeded in business and other achievements mostly because I'm not afraid to fail. My small hiccups are only learning tools to me of which I strengthened from each but continued moving ahead. I went from finance to medical and then to sales where I basically combined them all.
In my non-business world I added running into my world at age 50 having not been a runner before. Somehow I had some talent I was unaware of before so I didn't waste it. I found a large global sponsor for a team of elite masters runners that I hand picked after only 1 year of racing in the USATF track world and broke my first record in the outdoor mile at 59. I then went on to win World Gold in the indoor 800m in Toru, Poland at age 60. I taught myself to Steeplechase at 59 in my backyard and went out and won Gold at the National Championships 5 months later. My point is not to brag but to show if you put 100% into everything you do you will succeed sometimes even better than you had hoped. I was a gracious winner and loser and gave myself only a few minutes to feel amazing over each gold as I knew there was someone eagerly waiting to take my place so the victory never lasts long.
And so I've now moved on from that world...
At this point in my life I'm finding new challenges that keep my passions alive with my own identity but also wanting to share my world with that someone special that I can enjoy their world but especially to make our own amazing memories together as well. And as always I will give it 100%.
