Traveling through Memphis yesterday and remembering when Elvis was king of rock and roll, a famous movie star, and quite literally, a world icon.

What Do You Write When You’re Not Sure Where To Start?

Yikes!!!!!!

We’ve all been there. Failure and success. Mostly failure. Right? Luckily we get those occasional victories. Feels good doesn’t it? But why don’t they come more frequently? Is it because we dream too big for our reality?

But what about those bases loaded home runs? The rare events in our lives that happen beyond anything we saw as possible. Everyone gets a few of these in their lifetime. Why only a few?

Dear Son, Most Startup Businesses Don’t Survive

Life, like nature, and business, can be quite brutal.

Dear Son, the fact that Mid Life Celebration is still alive is because your Father has learned how to survive. What we accept by default becomes our standard. I can accept failure, but I can not accept quitting.
