In 2004, when I was in my early 30s, I was a successful executive at a massive global corporation and thought I had it all. But one night, during a business trip to Peru, I realized I had it all wrong.
My closest friends back in the US know I aspire only to be an “entrepreneur” or “entrepreneurial” in some capacity. Both of my parents started their own businesses in two separate countries after divorcing when I was young. I had the blessing of watching them grow into successful ventures that reflect my their individual passions and fund everything that makes them happy. All I’ve wanted since is the same self-made freedom and fulfillment.
Nowadays, being busy is fashionable, it’s cool. Being busy is something that many of us wear as a badge of honor. We wear this badge similar to the type of badge that we wear when we’ve just had to stay up all night to finish something that we’d been procrastinating on.
