Entrepreneurship Personal Growth

We took off to a little coastal town…

September 23, 2013

This past weekend, Claudia and I dropped our son, Jude, off at his grandparents and we took off to the little coastal town of Newport, Rhode Island. We were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and had a great time unplugging and spending time together in a new place.

We’ve learned in the middle of the hustle and bustle of life and entrepreneurship, it’s so important to continue to invest in our relationship. If we’re not careful, that can get crowded out with the seemingly more urgent things.

It was great to connect in this way and it was great to travel somewhere new. There’s something special about traveling to a new place where the people are a little different from you. It shows you that there are people who do life differently than you do which gives you a new perspective and generates new ideas.

How are you continuing to invest in your relationships as you work towards your goals? What new places are you seeing to give you a new perspective and new ideas?

    That is fantastic! Lately I’ve committed to going to a couple of events that are not convenient, but I know will be an opportunity to spent time with some awesome folks. I’ve noticed on the front end of investing time with others, you’ll find a hundred reasons why it’s not the right time, yet after the time is invested, you are almost always glad you did it. Glad you guys take the time for each other.

      That’s a great observation, Michael. I guess up front it takes that investment till you get the return you’re looking for. Way to build those relationships and connections!

    Happy anniversary, Michael and Claudia! It’s great that you took an anniversary trip together. The picture is beautiful: the background seascape and you two lovebirds! 🙂

      Thanks, Dan. The time and money spent of that trip where WELL worth it! Investing in experiences with loved ones never lets me down and is so much more rewarding than buying the latest gizmo.
