As CEO of Steele Ventures I’ve concluded multi-billion dollars deals without breaking a sweat. But sitting at the back of the comedy club tonight, I have never felt pressure like this before. Because after tonight everything is going to change.
I’ve rehearsed a thousand times inside my head what I’m going to say to Isabella. That it took losing her to open my eyes to what matters most. I used to think that was leading Steele Ventures. But she showed me I could be so much more.
Tonight I’m telling Isabella she was right when she told me the choice is simple. I choose her. And this time I’m all in.
That’s how many times I’ve been left speechless in my life. And the most recent of those wasn’t when Braden broke my heart after I let him win me over. I think that’s because deep down I always suspected this thing we shared was too good to be true.
But I’m a survivor and I promised myself that I would use this. That I wouldn’t go back to my safe life. So I put it all on the line. And then I got the call from an agent who told me he thinks I’ve got what it takes to make it in this game. Speechless.
Now I’m stepping onto stage after the emcee has announced me to the crowd and it dawns on me. This is my moment. And for the first time in my life it feels like I belong.
