Since I’ve been working at Push I have transitioned into a new lifestyle that, honestly, is pretty hard to beat. I came from a straight-laced political firm in Columbia that had basically been my sole experience in both the political and professional world. Now don’t let that mislead you, ask anyone who knows me and I have always been a t-shirt, PFG shorts and flops kinda guy.
Now that I’ve moved to Push, I have discovered a new way of living that could possibly compare to how surfers felt when they discovered Tavarua Island. It is a liberating feeling that I think has been and will also be very motivational. I love being able to wear my white tees, PFGs and reefs to work, while being surrounded by people that have a true zest and passion for their life and their work.
In my business classes at the University of South Carolina, we always discussed the fact that human capital is the most valuable form of capital and I think that my experience at Push thus far has definitely validated that fact.
It’s been two months since I packed up my U-Haul and moved from Columbia to Charleston to join the Business Development team at Push. And let me tell you somethin’, doing business development in Charleston is the real deal.
Think about it – beaches, awesome venues for badass events, food that is more than comparable to Chicago or New Orleans, the weather is untouchable (especially on a summer day with a steady breeze and a cold beer), oh and have I mentioned the craft beer scene down here? It’s pretty damn tough to beat.
Basically, Push has given me the opportunity to meet some pretty awesome people while also learning and growing both personally and professionally along the way.
