I originally started this blog back in 2014 while I was experiencing a few major life changes. I was 32 years old and newly engaged, having just departed the familiar harbors of a military career to find my fortunes in the new world of profit and shareholder value. I had much to learn. I wanted to find my voice, and truly absorb these lessons by writing about the things that I cared about. And so my journey began: first with an MBA, then a brief internship at one of my favorite brands, and onward to a new career in corporate finance.
