Why Ownership is Everything

In business, ownership is everything.

I learned that lesson quickly when I worked as an Executive Assistant at a start up company.

In that role, I had inside access to sensitive data, like ownership percentages for the company founders, investors, and employees.

On Dying Well

3 years ago today, my dad died. It was an awkward experience.

I found out on Facebook from a friend of his who tracked me down to offer his condolences – I didn’t even know my dad had passed.

I hadn’t heard from him in weeks. His phone had been shut off, which was a fairly normal occurrence.

My dad wrestled with a drug and alcohol addiction that had brought him in and out of my life since I was a kid. It had finally killed him.

That was how it ended, but that wasn’t the whole story.
