 My Core Values

Self-awareness is at the core of self-improvement. There just can't be a will to be better, but there must be a willingness to reflect upon and critique your actions. To be sure, that won't be easy. But developing a plan for self improvement and then executing upon it pays in the long-run.

When you build transparency into your actions and relationships, you not only build trust but you hold yourself to a higher standard. When you are willing to show others who you are and what you do, you take the time to do things right and to carefully consider your actions.

No matter how you attempt to improve yourself or how transparently you act, without genuine sincerity none of it matters. In the end, our relationships are what make us successful. We're social beings and, thus, the relationships we cultivate are our vehicle to a healthy and balanced life.
