Why is it so darned easy to complain? We complain to our spouses, our friends, our neighbors and to our dogs – Yes, Shelby sometimes hears me complain. While, I am generally happy with my life, sometimes, we can all forget about the goods things life has to offer. Here are ten things I am grateful about.


  1. My Mom: Even though this list is not written in any order, my Mother is on top because she sacrificed her youth to make sure I was brought up properly. She made a lot of sacrifices to make sure that I had everything growing up. Thanks Mom, I love you!
  2. My Girlfriend: Jenn and I have been together for a year now. I am grateful to have her in my life. Together, we’re like best friends and we love to travel, ski and do all sorts of stuff, all the time. Love you, Jenn!
  3. My Friends: Without my friends, I would be lost. I can’t remember a time when my friends weren’t there for me. If I ever need anything, all I have to do is send out a “Will Signal” (as apposed to a bat signal. LOL) and they are there. Besides that, they love to Ski and most are Entrepreneurs like me and being around like-minded friends is amazing!
  4. My past failures: Actually, I don’t like to consider anything a failure. In fact, it was Thomas Edison who wrote, “I haven’t failed, I’ve found 10,000 ways that don’t work.” Seriously, if it weren’t for my past failures, I would not have this web site or something to write about. Each time I fail, I fail forward and with it, I carry a new seed for a new opportunity.
  5. Books: For less than $20, you can buy a book and learn a lot from someone who has made a ton of mistakes and lived to tell about it. All the wisdom after reading a book is priceless and I just love that. This is precisely why I have formed the habit of reading one book a week!
  6. The Internet: I’ve been making my living on the Internet since 2001. Lets face it, without the Internet, life would be really difficult. Imagine everyone running around like a headless chicken because they can’t check their Facebook Status every 5 minutes? OMG what do I do? AHHHHH!
  7. My Health: At 37 years of age, I have the energy level of a 21 year old! I take care of myself and take my vitamins daily. I also get a sick workout 4-days a week and I love to ride my Trek road bike when the weather is nice. So grateful to be in good health. Without it, I would not be able to accomplish anything.
  8. My Dog: My dog, Shelby keeps me very happy and centered. She not only brings a smile on my face but lowers my stress as well. We take long walks 2-3 times per day often traveling for miles and it gives me peace to clear my mind and become centered once again.
  9. Freedom: I can come and go as I please no one owns me. That’s why I believe that “no man is free, who is not a master of himself.” Besides that, I have the ability to choose and plan my day the way I want to run it. This alone is priceless!
  10. Our Customers: First off, thank you very much! It’s my customers that put food on our plate every day. In return, I plan to give as much value as I can. Lets hope they stick around!

What are you grateful for? I would love to read a few things you can write about!
