10 years ago today I quit my day job. A good safe corporate job. In the uncertain times of early 2009. I had no idea what the future held, but I was optimistic and excited! Derek and I were already working on Beckett & Robb though we wouldn’t choose that name for a few months. At the time my wife had just stopped working to have our first child, who was less than a year old. I was in the middle of a MBA program. Just a crazy crazy time. But I did it!
Since then there have been countless ups and downs, forks in the road and pivots. And I wouldn’t change any of it. It’s been a fun ride and I just can’t believe it’s been 10 years!! That’s how long I was at my prior job. Wow, what an adventure.
So grateful to my wife for believing in my crazy plans. For accepting the risk of being married to a dreamer. To Derek for being an amazing business partner and friend, through it all. And to my incredible team at B&R who keep growing our little brand, each and every day. Can’t wait for year 20!
