Vizual Living is a culmination of my life long work of building businesses and building relationships.
I have been fortunate to have worked alongside leaders who are making a significant difference in the world while learning the skills to help other leaders reach their full potential in all areas of their lives.
The inspiration for Vizual Living was conceived as I walked 790km across Spain on the Camino de Santiago with my son and brother during the summer of 2013. Leading up to the Camino de Santiago, I documented my journey using my Vizual Plan to capture this monumental moment in my life.
The "aha" moment came as I was filming my documentary "790km The Turning Point". I was able to capture the stories from the people I had met everyday as well as my own experiences, and share them in real time with my family and friends on social media. I realized that people have a deep desire to share their stories in an authentic and transparent way, but they don't always know how to do this.
The concept of meeting one new person a day inspired our blog called Vizual Living 365, where we are meeting at least one new person and/or business every day for 365 days and sharing their story through photographs and short films.
My Personal Mission Statement: "To help people passionately pursue their purpose".
