It’s the journey, not the destination.
I create private peer advisory boards for CEOs of non-competitive companies looking to accelerate their business growth while enhancing their personal development.
I help small and medium sized business owners, early stage entrepreneurs, and graduate students at the intersection of design and business discover, develop and trust their inner guidance system in a world where feeling lost is the new normal.
I am a naturally curious person who loves to read, who is an addicted life long learner, who loves to get distracted on the Internet (thank you Cathy Davidson for researching the value of this activity), who loves to find interesting things, and finds great joy in sharing the discoveries with others. Over the years, I find myself entering “On the Way to Somewhere Else” as the subject line for many emails to colleagues, family and friends that are the fruits of my learning and distractions. This blog is an eclectic collection of the many diversions on the way to somewhere else.
