Fathers Matter

In 2016, my father went through radiation treatment for his colon cancer. A few weeks into treatment, I asked my father what does he want his legacy to be. As we started talking, I realized that he just wanted some simple life lessons to be passed on from generation to generation. I didn’t have my father consistently in my life growing up, but when my mother died, I was eleven years old, and he stepped up to the plate and took care of me. We’ve had a ton of ups and downs in our relationship, but through all of that, he is one of the best men I know. The lessons that he has taught me about life, money, friendships, marriage, parenthood, entrepreneurship, faith, and community, are way too much to put in a book. But I tried to do it anyway. This is my attempt to not only pass on those lessons, but to share his legacy with the world.
