Best Advice I Ever Got

My father always told me there are three major aspects  to your life – you have the person you are with, the place where you live, and the thing you do for a living.  If you’re happy with 3 out of 3 then you are living a golden life; but on any given day, if you can be happy in at least 2 of those aspects, you’re doing just fine.  But if you’re happy with only one or none at all, the get off your butt and do something about it.  Surround yourself with supportive people who “get” you; to whom you don’t have to explain yourself.  Live in a place that excites you and that cultivates who you are and who you want to be.  Choose to do something you love because invariably you’ll do it well.

My friend Ron Williams has a saying, “If you are not a wind in my sail, then you are an anchor on my tail.” I have a tremendous husband (my word not his), a great family, and fantastic friends.  I have them all because I choose to have them in my life (and yes, that goes for my family).  I live in a city that doesn’t bullshit me; it gives me just as good as it takes from me.  And I get to decide on the clients I want to work with.  My business theory is fairly simple – if I wouldn’t Friend someone on Facebook, then I don’t want them as a client.  That’s how I lead my life.

No matter what your aspirations are in life be the kind of person that when your feet hit the floor in the morning, the devil says, “Oh crap, they’re up.”
