I left Microsoft, we moved back to Texas, got a business off the ground, made money, lost money (mostly in the stock market), and had the transmission in our car explode.  It was the best of times and the worst of times…

With every new year comes opportunity.  I'm not sure about you, but this optimist sees brighter days ahead.

Stay fresh… stay humble… and make the most out of 2009!

Happy New Year!
