Growing up in a small town, Eagle Scout, nice little Military Career, own my own consulting biz, get to work around the world. I think I might have done most of it.
The Dream part has been in meeting great people, having challenges that were met, being called on when the hard stuff is required and having folks know that I am always there. RESPECT. You can't buy it, no matter what your credit score is.
That is the cool part of the American Dream. Gaining Respect. And the older I get, the more I appreciate everything I did in the past to make that part of the Dream happen. The money part is just a way of keeping score. We did that with marbles when we were kids.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
