• Don’t wait for a crisis before you do this

    Staying in business for many years is not easy to do. My wife and I founded our company in 2003, so we’re now 14 years doing this. We also started the company 5 months into our marriage. At the time I was running several businesses, but I really felt the call to leave them behind and focus on this one thing. It was a massive step of faith.

  • Why you can’t buy experience

    The photo above is the latest addition to our family. As you can see we both look pretty relaxed. But it wasn’t always that way. This little girl is our fourth child. My wife and I thought we were done and dusted in that we have three beautiful children, the oldest who has just started high school. This little one is a gift from God, but we’re definitely stopping at four! When our first child...
