I’ve recently received the following messages from a few close individuals that have known me for 20-plus years. I share this in the spirit of results, perseverance, and clear knowing in self-belief.

Message 1

Evening. Sending a quick check in note. My hope is that your time has been spent lighting up those around you with a genuine smile

Message 2

I would like to say foremost that I am a fan of you and your creations musically. And am an admirer of you as a person. I have a deep respect for how you carry yourself in this world and have a deep respect for what you create musically and in business. Your empathy and is unmatched and the care you put into grooming yourself and others is beyond rare. I give notes for my peace of mind in case you choose to implement them. If not, I am still happy with the product without my notes being applied. It’s your vision and your creation. And I agree that you know best.

But what’s most important in my life is your friendship and how selfless you were when you showed up in my life at a time when I was not a good friend. I am lucky to have someone like you to influence me that way you have.

Message 3

Since we cannot have the true heros be portrayed in movies (they don’t do movies, they inspire them)*… that’s the job of actors…

But somewhere along the line people started praising the actors and they rarely look for the true heros that make others their own hero’s like you.
