Investing in Others

My son is only two weeks away. That is pretty unbelievable. Claudia and I are overwhelmed with excitement to meet him. She’s a little bit more excited because she’s so incredibly over being pregnant.

Speak Up

I don’t think I’ve thought about this since it happened about 20 years ago. It was an early dismissal day and I was walking home from school. My buddy and I were just talking, probably about video games, when we saw the parked truck move from side to side. Then we heard screaming. “What’s that?” …

We were visiting my parent’s house and my mom was holding him. That’s pretty much it, nothing more. But the feeling I had …

I love to learn. As far back as I can remember, I’ve had an inquisitive mind. A specific recollection of me being inquisitive happened when I was around 7 years old. I used to have a battery powered CHiPs motorcycle with a little Larry Wilcox attached to it. It wasn’t small either. Officer Baker was easily …
