My Quick Story – How I Changed My Life
Born and raised in the Milwaukee, WI area, I grew up in an average Midwestern town in a middle-class household. Growing up I was an average athlete, doing average in school, and just sliding by. During my freshman year of college, I spent my first semester and half slacking, failing classes, and became a heavy drinker and smoker to deal with my problems.
Near the end of that year, I had a sudden realization. I didn’t want to be average, I fucking hate that word. And I needed to turn my life around. I went cold turkey on drinking and drugs. Started spending my afternoons in the library instead of behind the TV playing video games. Over that next year I:
- Turned all my grades around from Ds to As
- Read over 25 business/economics/self-help books
- Became an officer in CEO (Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization)
- Taught myself programming (swift) to create my own startup
None of this is to brag. But to show you that if you don’t like where you are in life, you can also change it. It just takes time and a little determination. Feel free to contact me if you need help, advice, or some motivation. It’s my goal to help as many people as possible.
