The Real Reason I Had To Quit Drinking

If you’ve ever met me, then you know…

I’m pretty intense about almost everything I do.

Which is probably why…

I quit drinking almost a decade ago and it was probably one of the BEST decisions I’ve ever made in my life.

Back then, I was super busy with my new business.

I wanted it to be a HUGE success.

I was networking, meeting potential investors, and living the full-on founder life.

But I came to a realization while on vacation with my wife, Renée…

If I kept drinking, at some point over the next decade or two, I could cause a lot of pain to the people in my life.

Ever been in a similar situation? Maybe not about alcohol… but something?

I want to tell you my story.

Please watch. It would mean the world to me.

I remember the moment I decided to quit drinking.

My wife didn’t believe me. Maybe because I was drunk when I told her.

But since that moment, it’s been nearly a decade without a drop of alcohol.

Is there a decision YOU need to make to improve your life or business?

I want to challenge you… it’s worth it!

Do the hard things.

Your family will thank you AND your business will thank you, too. I can’t wait to hear your stories of success in a few years.
