"How did I get here?" Last night I was sitting in a row of chairs at the Space Gallery in Denver, looking at the people, companies, personalities, and stories around me. Sometimes I just feel so lucky, so fortunate, so grateful that I'm sitting where I'm sitting. I'm...read more

Truth is, I was nervous about camp. Will people like me at camp? Will I make friends at camp? Being the new guy at camp is hard. What will people think of me when I get to camp? All these emotions came rushing back to me like a young kid heading to their first...read more
As an entrepreneur, often times I’m frustrated or even afraid. Sure, many of what we do has been done before. And fortunately, there are people and books that are willing to share what to do and what not to do. But many of the situations I encounter are new. I’m...read more
