Last year, at 30 years old and with a wife and two young children, I had a realization about my professional life that I believed could make my whole life more fulfilling in the long-run, but that was not going to be easy to achieve. My realization … I had defined the term “success” wrong. With a career (and, as a result, a life) built around a definition that was not aligned with my heart, I had to figure out how to extract myself from my current situation and place myself into the life that I WANTED, without causing too much collateral damage. Two things helped make this possible, the love and support of my wife and … Barbara Russo.
Barbara is a caring, insightful, aware, and very present human being. She understands, and has taught me, that life is what we make of it. We can either sit back and go along for the ride wherever that may take us (good or bad), or take control of our life and make it fulfilling, meaningful and our own. As such, it is never too late to redefine yourself, or elements of your life, to live the life that you want to live. My time with Barbara has been a breath of fresh air. She has provided me with invaluable insight and tools. Thanks to Barbara, instead of “believing” and “hoping” that one day I will realize professional and personal success, it is now my reality!
