“People often ask what I do! Then they look at me quizzically and ask how on Earth did I get into this?! And I reply “Well, following my own personal Vision Quest and Rites of Passage training in Death Valley…” to which there are gasps and exclamations.
Basically I got sick of being stuck behind a desk and a spreadsheet, working to make other people rich and look good, when there was no loyalty returned in my direction whatsoever. And when I was finally made redundant for the fourth time, it really got a bit wearing. I resolved then never to work for somebody else ever again.
Coupled with that I have had to deal with deep seated issues around my father, and his leaving us when I was just a small child.
But the core of this story is this – I remembered who I was meant to be – the best me – and I found my new purpose through Wilderness Vision Quest. My purpose is to help others re-awaken their own lost potential and to be all that they can be.
