2017 Review

2017 was…a mixed bag. Some of the highlights included:

On the downside:

  • The primary business model for my startup failed and we were forced to pivot
  • As a result, we had to lay off a large portion of the team
  • Also not unrelated I unfortunately accumulated significant credit card debt for the first time in my life
  • Probably also not unrelated (but also just a byproduct of growing old), I had more health related issues than normal including my 3rd knee surgery

So, like I said. A mixed bag.

In addition to these specific highlights/lowlights there were also several intangible constants. I love my kids more than anything and it has been so amazing seeing them grow up throughout the year. More than anything else, I am just grateful that we are all (relatively) happy and healthy. Regardless of the stress I feel on a seemingly more regular basis these days, I thank God every day for everything. We are extremely lucky to be alive and truly blessed.
