When walking out a visionary pursuit, one must stay adamantly focused on the goal. Clips such as this remind me that accomplished dreams are always preceded by challenging obstacles, unimaginable sacrifice and those who speak boldly against you. Two traits that I have learned along my entrepreneurial journey that every entrepreneur must develop: perseverance and a high tolerance for pain. Stay the course. Overcome. The future is waiting for your story.
2017 was the year that I personally saw decades of work come to fruition. The emotions in this clip represent things that I experienced firsthand this year, and the lessons in this film are important for everyone to learn:
Put yourself in front of the right people.
Never be afraid to ask.
You can overcome one obstacle after another.
Never let them see you cry.
There are rewards for hard work.
Walk with integrity.

As a native Texan, Hurricane Harvey hit too close to home. Observing the American spirit rise up to support those in need made me proud of humanity and those I call family. Observing the actions of Mattress Mack reminded me that there are likeminded individuals in the world who set out to care for people, willing to step up and take action in a time of need, with no thought of personal gain.
B5 Motors in Gilbert is giving away a free truck to a veteran who saved dozens of lives during the terrifying Las Vegas shooting last Sunday. Marine veteran Taylor Winston is being hailed a hero after saving dozens of lives during the mass shooting when he stole a truck and transported critically injured victims to the hospital.
Humility at its finest. Heroism honored as it should be.
Selfless individuals who set out to make life better for those with unique challenges hits close to home. One of the greatest rewards a human can receive is the feeling of helping someone who cannot help himself. This is a perfect example. Nothing is accomplished in this world without the help from others.
Bill Gates used his smarts to become one of the most successful people on the planet, so it only makes sense that he would make a smart city. Earlier this month, a group headed by Gates’ investment group Cascade Investment LLC purchased a large plot of land just outside of Phoenix, Arizona to build this vision of a smart future.
It is my passion to make the world a better place, to leave it better than when I entered it. I dream of the day when communities are able to function with efficiency, utilizing natural resources to power our world.
Two decades is not a lot in the grand scheme of things, but owing to accelerating change we can expect to see the emergence of some fairly disruptive technological innovations in the coming years. Here are 10 mindblowingly futuristic technologies that should appear by the 2030s.
I love to envision the future. What will it look like? What advances will be made? I constantly seek out ways to educate myself and others about what could be possible, pushing the envelope of technology. Plus, I find this all incredibly fascinating.
“Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert” ( Isaiah 43: 18-19 NKJV).
My faith is the greatest aspect of what makes me who I am. My deeply rooted belief in the redemptive work of a Father is pivotal to how I live my life and how I treat others in my personal life as well as in the corporate arena. I am a firm believer that all people have a purpose to fulfill, and I walk out each day in order to fulfill that purpose.

I appreciate beautiful things, and the Grand Canyon is one of my favorite places to visit. It is breathtaking and reminds me that there has to be One that is greater than us. Thoughts of pride quickly disappear at the Grand Canyon, and we are reminded that we have been entrusted as caretakers of what we have been given.
