Living and working my mission and vision and sharing my thoughts along the way.

On January 15, 2013, Mindy Nairn Hartman Rodwell passed away, just 13 days short of her 59th birthday. She left behind a life that was lived full of love, passion, and challenge. Some 30 years earlier she was in a tragic car accident that left her confined to a wheel chair for the remainder of her life.

But Mindy would not let this disability discourage her from living a life she wanted to live. She went on to get married, give birth to a son and daughter, and provide and give back to her local community.

Her son, Ben, has grown into a strong, smart, and courageous young man who has spent the last several years serving his country in the US Army. He plans on leaving the active service and attending college next year.

I promise no tomorrow For today will always last And since each day's the same way There's no longing for the past

So when tomorrow...

As some of you may know, my wife and I welcomed a new baby daughter back in February named Sophia. However, this was not our first child. I cannot take credit for fathering our first child, but back on June 14, 1995, our first child, or should I say my wife’s first child was born. At the young age of 6 weeks old, my wife laid eyes on a baby Siberian husky that would become her first child and the love of her life.

In the April 2009 issue of Inc, Jim Collins, author of Good to Great, Built to Last and How the Mighty Fall, had the following to say about entrepreneurship and how it relates to risk:

“Students used to come to me at Stanford and say, I’d really like to do something on my own, but I’m just not ready to take that much risk. So I took the job with IBM. And I would say, you’re not ready for risk? What’s the first thing you learn about investing?
