Call it cliché. But I was inspired by Elizabeth Gilbert's 'Eat Pray Love’ when the book came out in 2006.
I read it as a teen (a few times), watched the movie when it came out, and then when life presented a fork in my own path, I chose the road inspired by her.
You can probably guess what was the catalyst.
A breakup. A wild, messy breakup.
At the time, I had just quit my 9-5 job, and was focusing full-time on my new business Canupy.
I'm not gonna sugarcoat things – it was a ROUGH time. It felt like everything was crashing down at once.
