The many, many good friends I’ve made over 30+ years in this business…people I would not have met if I hadn’t somehow stumbled into and stayed/got stuck here.
The passion many have to do the right thing and the privilege it has been and is to work with companies and organizations with that central objective.
Readers who challenge, confront, correct, applaud, cheer, and debate and have been doing so for 17 (!) years.
The mistakes I’ve made over the last few decades, for what they have taught me about hubris, assumptions, lack of diligence, and the power of experience.
My family – Deb, the most positive, joyful person on the planet who’s somehow tolerated me for 34 years; Erin who’s become an amazing mom, fierce advocate for her patients, and incredibly strong person; Molly whose intensity in competition is matched only by her love for and dedication to family; and Cal who has persevered in the face of overwhelming difficulties, always pushing through and never giving in.
A lot about our world is less than great these days, so it’s more important than ever to keep the good front and center.
