2022 | Week 22

52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“The purpose of life, is a life of purpose.”

This is WEEK at a GLANCE - a glance at 52 weeks of my PNW adventures!

Powered by passion and inspired by the Northwest, join me as I journey through life as an entrepreneur on a mission to make a difference in the lives of others, and in our community… one step at a time, one week at a time.


This week, I set out to explore Mount Rainier National Park - 236,381 acres of forest including a magnificent 14,410 foot volcano. The highest point in the Cascade Range, Mount Rainier, is surrounded by valleys, waterfalls, subalpine meadows, and several acres of old-growth forest. More than 25 glaciers descend the flanks of the volcano, which is often covered in clouds that dump enormous amounts of rain and snow. This happens to make for incredible waterfalls - many of which are located off Paradise Road! And although there are several trails, the Wonderland Trail is the most popular as it circles the mountain & is known for its breathtaking summer views. Definitely on my bucket list!

Also, while visiting, I learned that Mount Rainier is only visible about once a week!!

The 52 Difference.

As our region continues to grow and the real estate market continues to thrive, I am passionate about giving back to nature. By keeping my goals TOP of MIND, I am able to honor my commitment to donate $52 for every home I sell and $.52 for every hat I sell to Washington Trails Association, in support of our aligned mission to protect the place we call home, the PNW.

Support Local.


"My goals have changed quite a bit in my life. As I’ve grown my businesses (many times at my own personal detriment) I’ve realized how simple my goals have become. I like to break goals down into daily and long term. My daily goals are three fold. 

1. Everyday Olivia

(I invest an hour a day just spending time with my daughter. No agenda.)

2. Everyday Active

(I make sure I do something active every day for 30min)

3. Everyday Soul Care

(I start and end my day with spiritual or mental time. Preparing, Reflecting, Unwind)

My long term goals are much less impactful on my everyday life! I retired as a fireman at 34 years old due to health complications and because of an opportunity to create my own businesses. I made it a goal to be prepared and ready to retire ten years later. To do that I began investing in apartments and created businesses to create active and passive income. When I hit the ten year mark I intend to have a very strategic mid life pause. I’ve always wanted to learn to sail and rent a boat and take my family on a trip somewhere warm. We’d live on the boat and take in this amazing planet together with no agenda."

THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your goals Shane! I am inspired by your energy & dedication and love the structure you have created to summit your goals!
