Work Hard, Play Hard

Work hard. Play hard. I’ve heard Scott Beck talk about his dad Sonny raising them this way. Hard work is important! Taking time to relax is equally important! I haven't always been able to do this. In fact, several years ago I was completely unable to get my mind off of work while on vacation. But now, in my 40’s, I’m realizing that my family is not going to remember me for my successes at work. They will remember time with me and the memories we made together.

Others will remember me for the impact that I have on them, be it good or bad. I strive to have more good than bad. This past month or so has, for me, been about hard work, fun and some good stories on the road of not only a traveling salesman, but a father.

Trips: Not Just The Places You Go, But The Memories You Make

Sometimes the life of a traveling seed salesman takes me to places on back roads, meeting interesting people along the way (which I love). But, sometimes you just have to get out of here and take a break. This winter has taken me to a few places that one could say were, uhhh…. pretty much polar opposites of one another.
