Oh my goodness! It’s been a long time! My life has been crazy busy - this post is just going to be an update on what’s going on in the world of Ethan Hirschberg. I don’t even know where to start:
My speaking engagements have really taken off. I am speaking at various schools and companies on a regular basis now and have more coming up in the near future. I recently spoke to a high school in front of 2,400 students. Click here to watch a video of me! This audience was my biggest crowd yet and I cannot wait for more opportunities like this in the future.
In addition to motivational speaking, my business has been thriving and I couldn’t be happier. As an entrepreneur and someone who has hyper focused in business for a decade now, I am thrilled to share my experiences as a business owner with Autism. My company, GrowthClick Marketing Solutions, is a digital marketing agency specializing in web design, social media marketing, SEO implementation, and business management consulting services. This business is seriously a dream come true for me - I have employees under me, a fantastic group of clients, and the ability to take a full-time salary in the near future.
On a more personal note, I have started to open myself back up… making myself vulnerable again… to friendships. The events that occured within the past five months or so brought me to a spot in my life where I had to (1) reevaluate my social situation and (2) take a step back and figure things out for myself. I spiraled into depression and for a point in time, felt that I had nobody. I can happily say now that for the past 3 or 4 weeks now, I’ve been in a happier place. I’m building my self-confidence back up and realizing my worth once again. I have learned from my mistakes and am ready to once again take on the world!
I apologize for not being as active as I have wanted to be. I’m ready to keep sharing, inspiring, and encouraging. Stay tuned for the next post!
