No more paralysis by analysis.
There, I said it. Now I have to hold myself to it.
After much reflection about whether I needed this site or not, I bought the domain name some time ago. And more months passed as I contemplated what my start should look like. I wanted everything to be ready before I began and to have the perfect start.
But I’ve finally come to terms with moving past that. Even with time, I haven’t felt perfectly ready. But one thing is for sure, time is passing by.
Even with time, I haven’t felt perfectly ready.
I found clarity by focusing on the initial reasons why I felt compelled to create this site in the first place.
I want to have a committed space where I can document my journey across the various aspects of my life and share my lessons with others. I want to capture what inspires me, how I engage with my work and projects and create conversation around takeaways that can be refined going forward.
My first blog was TheAfter5Edge and through building that blog and its community, I learned a lot about myself, business, technology, people and picked up some new skills. With that experience under my belt, I’m able to approach this site with a more informed perspective which I hope will benefit readers.
My goal is to provide an authentic, uninhibited point of view. I want to be transparent about what I do, how I do it and why I do it so I can help others with actionable insights. Even if one person benefits, I’ll be happy. So if that’s you, please reach out and let me know! You can sign up to have my posts come directly to you here and use these ways to contact me.

My next ask is that you help me with the direction of the site and provide feedback. As much as I’m sharing where I am and what I’m doing, I want to hear from you if there’s something specific that piques your interest. If you read something that you’d like me to elaborate on, I’ll be happy to do so. Similarly, if you would like to hear my point of view of a topic, I’d be happy to incorporate and address.
I’m excited about this new site and looking forward to the journey! You can sign up here to join me!
