This is the final post in a series of 16. If you are just joining in, read this post first. It will give you the whole back story about how this series came about. If you’ve missed any, this link will take you to the ones I’ve already published.
After hearing from best-selling authors, successful entreprenuers, and other adventurers, there’s only one person left I could think to call for some final words of advice as I start a new venture – my Mom – Kathy McGonigal.
She’s known me longer than anyone. She knows my strengths, tendencies, and weaknesses. She’s well aware of why I’ve decided to carve a new path. Her and my dad have been supportive of my decisions my entire life. They haven’t necessarily agreed, but they’ve been supportive. They’ve been role models, friends, confidants, and safety nets. They’ve know when to let go and when to pull back.
They’ve instilled many of the core values that have shaped who I am. And I think that all comes through in this short video. I hope you enjoy this last piece of advice.

Sometimes the hardest thing to do doesn’t involve building, creating, or launching. It’s not marketing, sales, or accounting. Sometimes the hardest thing is remembering that the most important things in life are the people you care about. It’s your family, your friends, and your neighbors. It’s not your bank account or the size of your company. It’s the relationships you build and the memories you create. Pretty simple in the end.
Thanks Mom (and Dad)!
