When I turned 30—four long years ago—two things happened:
First, I was told I should join the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), to which I promptly answered, what the heck is EO? (Don’t worry, I did join— thankfully so.)
Second, I decided I hadn’t achieved enough in my life. But, in fact, that’s an understatement.
The truth is, I beat myself up about not having achieved enough in my life, and right then and there I created new goals for myself.
They included writing for Inc. and Forbes, doing a TEDx Talk, going back to Columbia to get an MBA, and, last but certainly not least, becoming a published author.
By August 2020, every one of those big goals had come to fruition. And it felt…weird.
