This is my story…
Once upon a time, I worked behind a stuffy desk and longed for my two weeks of annual vacation time. Finally, I took a leap of faith.
My girlfriend, Carrie, was volunteering in Nicaragua. I quit my job, sold my stuff, and joined her.
My plan was to visit for two weeks; I stayed seven months.
In the years since, we have traveled near and far, lived in the USA and Thailand, supported each other’s dreams and said “I do!”
This brings me back to my belief about following your passions.
I’ll admit it, sometimes my life exists in a tug-of-war between two worlds. On one hand, I love the stability and comfort of a traditional life.
Yet, I also love spending my days creating photographic art, writing stories, designing websites, putting myself out there and seeing what comes of it.
That’s why balance is so important.
Carrie and I now live in Santa Cruz, California, where we have an amazing son named Bodhi and are enjoying every moment of life. Meanwhile, I started my own company – Goodman Creatives – which is dedicated to helping individuals and small businesses follow their dreams and succeed.
Having stability doesn’t mean sacrificing my passions. If anything, it allows me the freedom to continue pursuing them.
