I remember being a kid and watching on a black and white TV the Alabama race riots. I remember – even as a kid – wondering how this problem could ever be solved, how this level of hatred could ever be overcome.

It was hard to see how that situation could ever change. Look at the map of Europe now. Germany is reunited, democracies (of various qualities) in almost all of the countries of the former Soviet Union and that country itself a distant memory. And all of that happened in a just a handful of years. Pretty much anything is possible. In 2000, my company numbered nearly 50 people. When the dot.com bubble burst, much of our business disappeared overnight. Thinking this was a temporary thing, we tried to ride out the storm rather than getting small quickly, which is what we should have done. Bad mistake. As a result, we ended up with a debt of – essentially – $1,000,000. Fast forward to now and we’re debt free, small, profitable and thriving. I’ll say it again – pretty much anything is possible.
