I'm calling B.S. on burnout!

I worked my butt off to get into Stanford. Then I worked my butt off to get two engineering degrees. And by the time I was 29 I was earning six-figures as an executive at a Fortune 500 company. I crushed every single one of my goals.

And in the process, I crushed my soul.

It turned out that achievement wasn’t the path to my healthiest life. In fact, I had known this for a while.

In high school and college I silently suffered from anxiety.

My junior and senior years of college I secretly battled symptoms of depression.

It took two traumas in my mid-twenties to feel like I had permission to take a step back, re-prioritize, and design a life that honored my ambition AND my mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual wellbeing. THESE SHOULD NOT BE MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE!

So on my 29th birthday I launched a program I had been directing, gave my notice, and quit my job with no backup plan.

I spent my life’s savings on yoga, therapy, coaching, meditation, and healing.

Then I spent what was left on training to become a yoga teacher, meditation guide, and life coach.

Finally, I ran out of money. So I built a business aimed at helping high-performers, overachievers, and business owners manage their stress, prioritize their self-care, and learn how to selfishly protect their health so that they can continue to do the work that they love.

The KD Co. is a coaching and technology company determined to change the way the world works and lives by making chronic stress uncool and strategic self-care the new norm.

It’s hard work. I love it. And it forces me to take care of myself. We’d love to help you do the same!
