Welcome to Goals Are Cool!


Hi! I’m Blake. Thanks for being here.

I’m a 35 year old guy living in Raleigh, NC with a deep seeded passion for helping people unlock their greatest potential ever. I grew up working on a 123 acre farm where I learned the value of hard work and a never give up attitude. I believe in living life to the fullest while maintaining a set of core values in every aspect of my life. I’m an Eagle Scout and follow the motto: Be prepared. I love adventure and almost all types of sports. I enjoy traveling, trying new things, listening to music and watching movies to name a few things.

My Story


I graduated from North Carolina State University in 2005. After graduating, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia where I started my career with the largest healthcare services company in the world… they ranked as high as 14th on the Fortune 500 list during my time there.

I sold millions of dollars worth of software and professional services and had the absolute pleasure of working with some really talented people, many of whom I still keep in touch with to this day.

Currently, I serve as Executive Vice President for a Healthcare IT Consulting firm.

I’ve enjoyed my career in healthcare yet…

I’ve always wanted more.

I’ve had success yet…

I had to be true to myself and acknowledge that I’ve always felt like something was missing.

Have you ever felt like that?

Well, if you have, you know it can be the biggest roller coaster ride of your life…

One of my favorite quotes is from Vince Lombardi who said…

“Leaders aren’t born they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.”

– Vince Lombardi

About Goals Are Cool


At Goals Are Cool, you’ll find blogs, podcast episodes, courses and other content related to achieving goals. Some of the content will be based on my own experience, as I’ll share what I’m learning and doing to achieve goals. I’m the most passionate about topics related to:

  • Physical Health
  • Intellect
  • Finance
  • Travel
  • Career/Business
  • Relationships
  • Personal Development
  • Spirituality

I’ve always been inspired and interested in connecting with others through their stories of overcoming obstacles, achieving goals and ultimately pursuing their own ideas of greatness.

I’d like to invite you to join me as we explore how others have transformed their ideas into achievable goals that then, leads to a Triumph (taking the success of achievement to the next level of personal greatness).

People set all types of goals in life. Oftentimes people will set goals because they want to become better versions of themselves or improve their life experiences. The process of setting goals can help us choose where we want to go in life and how to get there. When you think about it, we all achieve goals. Sometimes the goal is planned from the very beginning, sometimes it’s not. When we take the time to plan our path, we don’t just stumble upon success, we achieve it with a clear vision and sense of purpose.

I believe in service to others and helping people achieve their goals. If there’s ever anything I can do for you just let me know. In the meantime, I’d be honored to have you follow along here at Goals Are Cool.
