2019

2019: An interesting, busy, emotional year personally and professionally. A couple of deaths in our family as my Aunt Vincie and my wife’s Grandpa passed away. They were loved by many! We were blessed with many new friends, activities and groups. My wife, kids, and I were active in church, Scouts, sports, arts, crafts, travel and nature. Personally, I set another personal gym record and read 22 James Bond novels in anticipation of next year’s “No Time to Die.” Professionally, I’m honored to have won Microsoft Gold Club, earned my 2nd promotion in 5 ½ years and had by far the most fruitful and best results-year of my entire career. I was professionally published again via a “B2B Sales Mentors” book collection and started writing my 4th novel, “Salesman on Fire”, was interviewed on 11 podcasts, participated in a leadership panel at Union Station, and set foot in my old Southwestern Bell sales office (where my sales career began) for the first time in 13 years. Spiritually, personally and professionally, it was a year of challenges and growth. I’m so very thankful for so many blessings. A blessed New Year wish to all of you, and as my Aunt Vincie would say as she closed out every hand-written letter, “Be well and very happy.”
