Hey, I'm Berni!
Madison, Wisconsin, United States · Member since February 2012

I used to own nice things, live in a luxurious home, and jump on a plane every few weeks to close big deals with large multi-national clients all over the U.S. and Canada.

It was fun while it lasted, but the glitz and glamour of that lifestyle left me disillusioned and unfulfilled about life in corporate sales.

After becoming sick and tired of trading in time and energy from my life and son to become married to my fancy title and salary, I realized I was chasing someone else's dream.

In the fall of 2008, I decided enough was enough. I took a leap of faith to kick the corporate job and my codependent relationships to the curb and started my first entrepreneurial endeavor as a personal coach and business strategist.

Now I dedicate my life to doing work that really matters to me: sparking people and movements. It’s the toughest job I’ve ever had, but the most rewarding and fulfilling work I’ve ever done. In the spring of 2012, I took another leap of faith and left Milwaukee, my home of 20 years, to prepare my life and business for its next phase. I will nomad around North America to work virtually anywhere there are shins, Internet access and a phone helping other lone entrepreneurs (like me) do more good shit in the world.

I am excited to find out where my journey will take me.

P.S. When I'm not kicking shins, I write about my journey from corporate to (email hidden) and produce a weekly web show helping brave solopreneurs shut up and make shit (email hidden).
