I soon came across an ad for a job opening at the Boys & Girls Club of America, I applied, interviewed and I was hired. To say the least, this job changed my life. Through working with these kids daily, I forgot about my troubles and was fully present in each moment. I learned a deeper sense of gratitude and patience and realized that the purest form of happiness and success comes not from chasing money, but through helping others.
I will always treasure the relationships that I created both with the kids that I had the pleasure of mentoring as well as my amazing staff. After a year and a half, I sadly had to part ways with the club and those amazing children, as my next endeavor took me all the way across the country to Southern Oregon. I took with me the passion to help others, which will never diminish. I truly believe that everyone deserves a chance to chase their dreams and ultimately Catch Those Dreams!
My goal with this project is to create a coalition that will help as many small businesses, artists, and organizations as possible, succeed in doing just that. I know what it’s like to struggle, both personally as well as an entrepreneur. Being an entrepreneur is not easy, but if we come together and help one another, we can all succeed.
Coalition over competition!
