As most of you know I started this blog to begin my journey of working in the outdoor industry.  Here is my very first post that may give you a little more background: Chasing my Dream.  This blog was just my first step in my pursuit of working in the outdoor industry full-time.  Over the last few months I have taken time to think about what is really important to me.  I came to a realization that I have more than just a love for the outdoors.  I have a deep passion for the outdoors and realized I will not be completely happy if I don’t act upon this passion.

I am beyond excited to announce that I have accepted a full-time position at a local sporting goods store.  This position allows me to work in an industry that I am passionate about and share that passion in the work I do!  This is a very big change for me and my family.  I am leaving a well-paying position with a great company that has given me invaluable experiences.  I know that these experiences will only help me as I advance in my career.  My wife and family have been very supportive of my dreams and decision to pursue a career in the outdoor industry.   There will be many challenges ahead, especially as we deal with a reduction in our income. However, we feel that we can work through these challenges and that we will come out a stronger family!family

If you are reading this and are sitting on the fence thinking about doing something you are passionate about, I would suggest to you to pursue your passion and dreams!  Whether this is in the outdoor industry or in some other field that you are passionate about, I truly believe that you will be happier and more productive!  There may be challenges to overcome in the beginning but your long-term happiness will be greatly improved!

I have labeled this post Part 1 because I hope to use this “Pursuing my Dream” series to keep everyone updated to changes and progressions in my career in the outdoor industry.  I am looking forward to bringing you along as I embark on this amazing journey!  If you are looking to begin your own journey and maybe just don’t know where to start, please feel free to send me an email.  I will gladly offer you any advice I may have or be able to steer you in the right direction.  Sometimes all we need is one person to give us that encouragement to make a change!

  1. Congratulations. Looking forward to reading more. At 60 years old I look back and would have liked to gone down this path. But I didn’t know how and the internet was “still in Al Gore’s mind. LOL”

    Good luck. Pictures make the story 😉
