A pre-Thanksgiving contest started it all
When I was in college I was a just a supply delivery guy for a local office equipment company. My boss offered me a chance to participate in a demo contest of the largest machine they had to sell. He need me to "round out the math" to evaluate his 3 seasoned sales people. The prize a portable black and white Sony television which was the coolest thing I had ever seen. I knew the odds were stacked against me to win it, but man I wanted it. He gave me a chance but ended up giving me so much more.

Even I Mess Up Relationships Sometime
I was recently fired. Well, that might be a bit extreme but it felt like I was fired. My now former virtual assistant suggested we "see other people." It left me realizing that I didn't pay enough attention to the relationship and it cost me big time. Yep even the Ripple Man screws up sometimes. Note: Apologies for the wonky audio. We used the video we shot for my Youtube Channel and it didn't quite come across as crisp as we'd like. We could blame the VA but that wouldn't be right.

I May Never Make The Cover of Inc. Magazine
It's funny but if you look back over the last few years how your perspective of what success should look like has probably shifted. For me, my dream since I was in high school, was to make the cover of Inc. Magazine as if that would somehow show my dad, the world I had done something amazing. Until yesterday, I suppose I was still using that barometer of success a little bit to define when I'd finally made it. Then I woke up to my present reality. I'll never likely make the cover of that magazine or any other magazine for that matter and you know what? That's okay. I'm healthy. My family is healthy. I'm happy. My family is happy. I am grateful for so much, especially now with so much uncertainty in the world. That's what success means to me. Not some cover of a magazine. My success lies in the legacy I'm building through Ripple and that is good enough.
