My first “mid-life” crisis hit in my late 20s. I was a graphic designer who hit it big by the time I was 24 and then…my meteoric rise stopped. Eventually, I figured out I was not gonna be the next big Milton Glaser. (Pop star in graphics world.)
Eventually I hit on success for me: Just being me!
Since then, I have had years where I’m wildly popular and making lots of money and I’ve had years where I had to declare bankruptcy, had relationships fail, and worse.
But thru it all, I’ve learned if I’m being me…I’m OK, I’m successful and I’m making a difference in the world!
