How many times a day do you ask yourself “why?” Why did I just do that or say that or think that? I know that I have been asking myself that question for as long as I can remember. In the last few months, I have been given the chance to really explore that question and am happy to say that I finally think I know why I am here on this planet.

Now, I know this might sound a bit out there, but I realize now that I have been on this path a long time. I have been trying to understand what it truly means to be authentic, happy, and real. I have truly focused on the power of connection. Along my journey, I met Jim Britt and Jim Lutes who produce the book series The Change. I joined fellow co-authors to be a part of volume 14. From that experience, I met Deb Crowe who is a Canadian entrepreneur who promotes a healthy mind and body. Deb and I nurtured our friendship over a few months, and she introduced me to Gerry Visca, best-selling author and inspirational speaker.

This is where the why comes in. Gerry has built his life around understanding why, and he has authored 17 books on the subject. He not only wanted to find out his own why, but also help a million people figure out theirs. I couldn’t refuse the chance to have him help me figure out mine. I am excited to share that I will be in his 2018 New Year’s edition of Defyeneurs® Magazine. This edition explores how others are Getting Real with their Why. In this publication, you will hear from me and a handful of others as we share what makes us tick. My hope is that it inspires you to dig a little deeper into your own Why.

Stay tuned, and I am looking forward to sharing my WHY in 2018!

Happy Holidays!
