In 2011, my husband Nate and I set a vision to live on land. You know, the kind of life where at the end of the day you've got to hose the whole family off before coming inside? While we waited, I started a print magazine called Cottage Hill—a consistently sold-out, internationally distributed publication. After several years of small business success, I created an online education program for creative entrepreneurs called Editor's Course.
Eventually, we found our dream property and I sold my businesses. Now my days are filled with farm chores across the 100+ acres we share with our family, alongside our two daughters. We raise sheep, cattle, chickens and horses and are starting our family garden soon. Our dream? To build our ranch, and create a space for our family, and our community.

Greater things may not be bigger things for you. You may deep down, have dreams that seem small, but to you mean the world.
I get that.
Could I invite you to a different idea? Stop looking to the right and left. You're not going to find what you're looking for, and no matter how hard you work, you'll be disappointed.
It's time to move on to greater things. It's time to stop playing small, and by that I mean small-minded. It's time to make your own rules, be your own guru and create your own course.
Are you with me?
