The Year of Extremes

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…

– Opening line of A Tale of Two Cities

This was definitely true for me over this past year. This year has brought on the extremes of my experiences in my relatively short life. From some of the best experiences (building and selling my first company) to some of the worst (losing my father and my grandmother), this has truly been a wild ride. It’s also been one of the years when I feel I have learned the most, both about myself and in general.

This past year has truly shaped my life in amazing ways, and I can’t wait to see / dread what 2009 will bring. In either case though, I’m ready for it.

  1. Jon – I lost my dad just before my first big success as an entrepreneur. I always wished he could have seen what I was able to accomplish. I always looked up to him as an entrepreneur and it would have been great to let him see some of the stuff I did as one too. I know it's not been easy, but you've done an amazing job in 2008 (which I'm sure will continue in 2009 and beyond), and I'm sure your dad would be proud.
