It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day, but it’s important to stop and ask: what’s the end goal? Knowing where you are trying to go is step one in getting there and so we’ve asked some folks we admire to tell us their end goal and where they want to be by the end of their careers.

L’Erin Stortz | Entrepreneur, Brand + Business Coach, Female Investor

Well I don’t believe in the getting “there”. There is no mountain top because the second you get there, your heart will be craving the next goal, desire, or challenge. I strive for the climb I guess you could say. Those goals, moments and process that keep me evolving, always striving to take myself and my abilities to the next level. I choose goals that scare me, inspire me, and push me to always be striving for the 2.0 version of myself and leadership. I am all business and I do it with a lot of heart and lot of passion. It is literally in my DNA to build brands/businesses and bring visions to life. I truly believe God gives each of us a gift and I know my zone of genius is the ability to see Big visions so clearly and know which systems and action steps need to be put in place to make it happen.
