In my senior year at West Islip High School, I made a goal to break the school’s 400M hurdles record. To do it, I “borrowed” three hurdles from the school gym so I could practice on weekends. One Saturday in May, 1991, my father took a break from his small business to watch me compete at one of my last track meets. I broke the record. He went back to work.
Last year, after months of debate, I accepted my greatest challenge to date. One that will fundamentally change the way local businesses drive new customers.
That said, I believe my greatest accomplishment has been to design a life like my father’s, one with the freedom to move across the Atlantic to pursue an opportunity or simply walk out of my office when I want to meet my wife and daughter at the spielplatz near my office.
