One of the coolest things that I have ever seen was a volcano erupt in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala.

My husband and I got up at 4:30am and crawled into a small van with a group of people who didn’t speak hardly any English to climb a mountain. We are in good shape but this “hike” (crawl) kicked our butts. About 4 hours later we arrived at the top.

This is what we got to see.
Wow. It was worth it.

Struggle sometimes gives us the most interesting perspective doesn’t it? When you have to fight for something you see things completely different.

My goal is to encourage unconventional (outside the box) leaders, creatives, and entrepreneurs to “keep going”. Not only do the unconventional ones inspire, they are the ones that make the greatest impact.

I believe you were created with a unique purpose and although the struggle may be real, the view will be worth it.
I promise.

Hey, I’m Heather

I started out as a photographer. Through the process of working on my own business and starting a local nonprofit, I fell in love with helping others pursue their goals and follow their passion.

I ended up going to graduate school to learn more about human behavior, and started connecting with what I call “Unconventional Leaders”.

I started to notice that some of the most powerful influencers were those who overcame some sort of struggle. Maybe they grew up poor, were abused, or discriminated against. Maybe they just thought different and didn’t fit in. I want to tell their stories in hope to encourage you to do what you were created to do, despite what you feel may disqualify you.
