I WAS THE BLUE SUIT GUY

I used to be just like you.


I was the "blue suit-white shirt guy".


I loved that guy.


My wife loved that guy.


I would come home from work and she would say "oh sexy businessman". 😍


Then COVID happened.


Pretty soon it didn't make sense to drive to the office and pay a bunch of money for rent.


I was already running 90% of my meetings on zoom, and was kind of just going to the office... just to go to the office.


When I decided to sublet my office, I wanted to see how long I could pull off working from home.


I want to see how long I could pull off wearing board shorts every single day of the week.


🤙 🌊🤣


Since then I've went from high and tight haircut to Covid Flow.

(Search "Covid Flow" on Urban Dictionary)


I adopted the habit of wearing a backwards hat, (mostly to cover my growing covid flow as I went through multiple different hair stages.


What I realized during this time was that the guy that was wearing the blue suit and white shirt,  was the same guy that started a surf lesson company 13 years ago without knowing how to surf. 🏄‍♂️🌊


(My surfing co-founder did 😉)


I digress.


The main realization though has been that by being true to myself, it is enabled me to make a massive pivot in my career trajectory, to tackle a much bigger target with clients that energize me to jump out of bed in the morning and serve.


I haven't stepped foot into an office building in 18 months, I take my dog to the dog park 5-6 times a week for several hours and have breakfast and dinner with my kids every single day of the week.


I wouldn't trade any of that for the world.


How about you....

Have you made any similar transformations/realizations in the last 24 months?
