People first, then money, then things

“People first, then money, then things.” – Suze Orman Our operatic voices belted throughout the car as we sang along to Johnny Cash. Then we drove along Country Road S and decided to switch over to free style rapping. Towards the end of our three hour road-trip, we even got to practice our falsetto voices […]

The long learning of how to maintain friendships

Friends 2 Comments by Tom Krieglstein

The first time I met Kevin was back in 2002 at our Supuercamp try-outs in San Diego. I like to say it was entrepreneurial love at first site. We were both tall and lanky white dudes who found a common bound around adventure, entrepreneurship, and education. Since then, Kevin and I have gone from co-facilitators, […]

We randomly met a couple on the beach in St John yesterday from the same home county in IL as us. Being that they were 15 years older than us, it felt a bit like talking to a future version of myself as they had 2 kids & he was slowly looking to exit out […]

Creating Yard Sales

Over the weekend I went skiing with a group of friends in Killington, VT. Prior to this weekend, the last time I went skiing was eight years ago in Whistler, Canada. Starting on the bunny hill and then working my way up to a “real” mountain, I was impressed at how quickly skiing came back […]
