Today is my brother Bill’s birthday.
He may not know it but he had a part to play in Mavidea getting to 15 years old too.
Part of my plan if things had gone sour was to move in to my brother’s basement (he owed us from when we let him live in our basement for a while after college). Maybe not the most well thought out plan (I had many like this), but it let me be a little more free with the idea of taking on some risk and making some of the hard choices early on.
Many of you on the DAE list were part of those back up plans and hair brained ideas about how to make this thing work whether you knew it or not. Having loved ones, friends, family, etc. around in case things went sideways made things easier and less stressful (and still do). The list of who deserves a thank you here is too long to type up, but if you’re getting this email – you’re on it.
The point here is that we can risk the small stuff (businesses failing, money, jobs, etc.) if we have the big stuff (relationships, love, family, friendships) in place.
The love and support of family and friends helped Mavidea become something it wouldn’t have been otherwise.
Who needs your love and support?
How many lives might be enriched through this support?
Happy Birthday Uncle Bill and thanks for the support!
Make it a great day.
