“I have learned that it’s so important to set lofty goals for yourself. If you’re aiming for something incredibly ambitious rather than comfortable, you’ll approach the challenges in front of you differently, and come up with more innovative solutions. I could have never imagined that when I joined a four-person blog in 2009 that we’d later employ over 50 people and provide custom research to some of the most powerful organizations such as Adidas and Starbucks and even helping NASA prototype their journey to Mars with our research.”
