So many people have connected me to ideas, information, opportunities and people that have had profound benefits on the person I've become and the things I've accomplished so the only way I could ever fully repay these people is to do the same for other deserving folks who are one idea, one opportunity or one connection away from finding their purpose and winning at life. I think about the people who believed in me when I was in high school and college, the people who gave me some of my first professional gigs, the people who invested time and money into helping me find my entrepreneurial footing with Sneak Attack then Style X and now, most prominently (and effectively), with Localeur. I think about the people who didn't just show up when it was looking like I was headed somewhere great, but the people who were there when it wasn't certain which direction I may ultimately go. I think about the people who didn't wait until the train was nearly full and the pace rapid, but those who got on alone and before I'd even finished laying down the tracks I'd need to succeed. I will make them proud and I will make certain they know they've helped my journey, however non-linear and unpredictable.
