So much has been written about the path to success. Just head to your local book store or type "career" into an online search field. You will come across hundreds of books about how to be career-oriented and have it all -- all while mastering a healthy work/life balance.

As we know, the quest for the perfect career doesn't begin in our 20s or 30s. From a young age we're often herded into one corral over the other. "Suzy loves her science classes, so we'll tick that box on the 'What do you want to be when you grow up?' form. Billy, on the other hand, can't keep his nose out of books, so let's assume that he'll be a teacher someday."

It seems as though things have changed since I walked into my high school counselor's office to decide on a career before I had even taken my driver's license test. I'm coming across more and more people who are learning to create their own career path. Many haven't necessarily followed the dotted line they set in motion at the ripe old age of 16 and most would argue that they're better for it.

Everyone I've encountered has an amazing story to tell. Because these innovative, brilliant beings inspire me on a regular basis, I'd like to share their stories with you all.

Yes, there's a new series in the works, my friends.

Stay tuned.
