• “Currently Not Drinking” Status: Sober
I stopped drinking on October 13, 2013. Looking back, I can say without hesitation that choosing sobriety was one of the smartest and most positively impactful decisions I’ve ever made.
Before I quit drinking, I lacked self-discipline, focus, and fulfillment. My hangovers ruined or dampened my weekends–I was groggy, irritable and lazy. Drinking for me was a selfish obsession, and it robbed me of quality time with my friends and family. Even though I had a successful career in enterprise software sales, the startup I co-founded with a friend had been flailing for years.
I hired a coach who inspired me to quit drinking for 90 days. After 90 days, I felt great, and so I stuck with it. I hit the 6-month mark, then the 1-year mark, and never looked back. I credit my entrepreneurial success to my decision to quit drinking. It was only after I got sober that I achieved my dream of being an entrepreneur. I am now running two companies, Issuance and Crush Capital, which have raised more than $2 million in aggregate to date – my career is at an all-time high!
Today, I am disciplined, focused, and fulfilled. My weekends are incredible. In fact, every day is incredible, because I wake up feeling great. Choosing sobriety was not a totally intuitive decision at the time, but it turned out to be the right decision in retrospect.
I believe deeply in YELLOW’s mission. Together, we can galvanize others to embrace the “Currently Not Drinking” lifestyle and be a part of a community much greater than ourselves.
YELLOW is not just another brand. It’s a movement. And the time is now. Join us!
