More than anything, I want to help others (and myself) live our most fulfilling lives. Most of us have never really considered what our most fulfilling life would be; we tend to accept our lives as they are, just trying to get through it with some occasional moments of joy.
Inspired by my first trip to East Africa, I developed "Black Rhino Living" as a perspective that rejects the idea that we just have to accept things as they are. Instead, we can clarify, and intentionally pursue, our most fulfilling lives.
Throughout my life, filled with diverse experiences, this has been the common thread weaving through it all. I've been married 28 years, have three grown children, spent 25 years working in the corporate world, have an overlapping 15 years of experience on staff and boards of nonprofits, I started and run a nonprofit doing humanitarian work in Rwanda where I have visited four times, I am a an entrepreneur, and I am an avid podcaster and poker player.
It's hard to imagine a situation I can't relate to in some way. But through it all, my greatest value has always been bringing the clarity to a situation that allows breakthroughs to happen. This is true with families, relationships, and careers; and it's true inside small businesses, nonprofits, and large corporations.
But I realize I can't have all the answers to help everyone; but I can create a vibrant and encouraging community that can have far greater impact than I ever could alone. And so was born the Black Rhino Living Community, a group of people committed to being in the "Jeep" together, searching for our Black Rhinos while staying aware of the beauty all around us, until our "park" closes.
Thank you for being part of this amazing journey of life with us.
We are a vibrant community committed to helping each other live our most fulfilling lives; and our ability to do that grows with each person, like you, who also longs for a life well-lived.
This community will provide you with insights through different methods (video, written, discussions) that will give you clarity on yourself, your relationships, and your interactions with the world.
When you feel like giving up, you will be encouraged to keep pursuing your best life. And you will have the opportunity to encourage other people in that same way.
In certain areas we will dig deep, helping you truly uncover those truths about yourself and the world around you that can lead to actual change in your perceptions or your actions. We are not looking to be just a social club with no actual change; we will be a community that continues to explore ways we can become more and more fulfilled as our life rolls forward.
I have wanted a community like this for a long time; and I know I'm not alone. While I find it in relationships from time-to-time, there is nothing like having an encouraging community of like-minded fulfillment-seekers that I can go to 24/7 to get the information, encouragement, or connection that I need.
Thank you for being part of this journey with the rest of us. May you find great comfort in knowing you are not alone, and great joy in getting the insights and relationships you need to make your live more fulfilled.
