Why I'm so passionate about helping your business take flight
When I started college over a decade ago, my life goal was to become a classical bassoonist and perform with the world’s finest ballet companies. Every day, I practiced my favorite pieces: Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring,” Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade,” and Bach’s “Cello Suite 1.” I pushed myself until aching wrists forced me to stop, when I then switched over to studying Russian.
I pictured myself performing in the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg with a captivating ballerina expressing the music that poured from the hearts of the dozens of musicians beneath the stage. I was my own task master, pushing myself even after I noticed my wrists began aching just minutes into a practice session. I didn’t let up when I started getting sick on a weekly basis and reprimanded myself when I started to stumble over pieces I had mastered years earlier because the tips of my fingers couldn’t feel the keys.
By the end of my first college semester, my wrists were in such constant pain I couldn’t even lift my bassoon from its case. It took years for me to figure out my illness, and by the time I pinpointed it, I had lost my music scholarship, leaving my lifelong dream shattered.
I finished college with a degree in chemistry, beaten down and lost. I traveled the world, living in Russia, Japan and Spain and met amazing people. Some of them had stories similar to mine: I met an Olympic hopeful in Russia starting from square one after a devastating knee injury. I met others who had achieved their dreams and shared the joys and triumphs with me of how their hard work paid off. I became captivated by people’s journeys, and knew I wanted to find a way to help others achieve their dreams.
When I lived in Japan, I visited a ramen shop, somewhat at random. As I enjoyed an amazing bowl of soup full of beautiful mushrooms, perfectly seasoned pork and a rich broth perfect for a cold winter evening, I spoke with a ramen shop owner. He off-handedly mentioned that I was one of the first Americans to visit his restaurant. I laughed and told him that I had no idea his building was a restaurant — I thought it was someone’s home, but had been so intrigued by the architecture that I decided to take a peak.
His eyes grew wide and he asked if I thought that might be the problem. His shop had been struggling for years despite the substantial tourist traffic on the street outside. We devised a plan: he would hang a simple sign in English, and he asked if I would create a simple web page in English so tourists could find his place.
This was the first website I ever made for someone else, and, even though it was ugly and needed to be redone by a professional just weeks later, it sparked something in me. I could help other people achieve their dreams. I didn’t have to sit idly by, I could make their dreams a reality.
I love hearing the stories that drive people to start their own business, and I love helping them market themselves online. I love working with driven people determined to forge their own path.
