Hi, I’m Austin.
And I’m passionate about the idea that discipline creates freedom. Not in a “soul-crushing, live-like-a-robot, never-have-fun” discipline kind of way. But more so by becoming conscious of and intentional with the decisions we make around our time, our money and our relationships.
As a college student, I used this mentality to compete in the largest intramural cycling race in the country (Little 500), complete Inc. Magazines “Best Entrepreneurship Course” (the Spine Sweat Experience), server as a member of the executive board for the 2nd largest collegiate philanthropy in the United States (IUDM) and convince my now-wife to give me a shot (by far the most challenging). And! I managed to get all of these things done in four years.
Since graduating, I’ve completed multiple distance-running and triathlon races, found career success by making a 180 degree turn in my work, helped my wife run her creative small-business from home and started a family thanks to the three great kiddos below.
My vision is to help young professionals learn how to find a balance that suits their priorities. I want to provide them with practical knowledge that will help them thrive in critical life areas.
If you’re looking for a speaker to present your next keynote or lead an engaging, interactive workshop, I would love to hear from you and learn more about how we can work together. You can fill out this short form to get the process started or reach me through Instagram or LinkedIn.
