What Comes Next? (#9)

Do you ever get nervous about what comes next?

I do. Not all the time, but enough of the time to say it’s noteworthy. I’m nervous about what comes next right now. When tyranny pushed me out of my career at Accenture, I fell into a wonderful role at HSP Direct—a leading direct mail fundraising agency.

It was a fun and exciting job. Still, five months into it, I knew I had to leave. For reasons I won’t be discussing, I left my position; a prestigious role with lots of authority and high compensation, to go home to my wife and four kids without a job for the first time since I was 16. 


After a while, my wife and I decided to pour into my show. Grow my podcast, develop customers, and deepen my ties to my tribe. 

Was it incredible? Yes. Profitable?…barely.

In the six months, I’ve been focusing entirely on my business, incredible opportunities have come…and a few distracting squirrels. 

I’ve made some meaningful relationships, personal and professional. Now, I’m waiting to hear whether a truly life-changing opportunity will come to fruition. But life goes on; I can’t sit around and wait in a state of inaction. 

Like a shark, I am a person who is always moving forward. 

What’s next? I don’t know. But I’m back in the professional marketplace and not settling for uninspired work. I’ve risen to the highest levels in multiple organizations. I have accolades at 33 that few will ever achieve. 

I’m stepping into whatever excellence God has for me. I’m just curious to finally find out what!
