Welcome to Conquer and Live! First off, let me tell you what Conquer and Live is and why.
I've always loved the word conquer. To me, conquer is how we find happiness and success in life. When we conquer our weakness, we find the freedom to live our lives to the fullest, to do things that we've never done before and to continue to do the things we love. Conquering is different for everyone. Some people it's climbing the tallest mountain, but for many, it's as simple as being in condition enough to play with their kids or grand kids. No matter the flavor, conquering something leads to freedom, and that freedom leads to happiness.
The why is a bit of a personal story. If you've read my "about" page then you know that I walked away from medical school, but the story is a bit more than that. Some people are really good at their trade, or are extremely talented in something like music or art, like they were made for that purpose. I was made to be a doctor. I'm wired to be a surgeon. The material in my science classes was always so easy for me and application was a piece of cake. Physiology just clicks for me. So getting into and walking away from medical school was a really big deal that left me wondering what to do next that would still allow me to apply all the knowledge from my degrees. PhD is a common alternative to medical school and I might go back and do one at some point but for me, I want to change people's lives. Conquer and Live is my way of changing people's lives. I want to see people conquer their weaknesses and live their lives to the fullest.
