Who Do You Enjoy Spending Time With?


“Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.” -Michael Jordan

When I was growing up on my parent’s guest ranch in Tucson, we would have many guests come back year after year. One very special person I remember and think about often was “Uncle Louie.”

Although we were not related, Uncle Louie felt like family and was one of my favorite guests to hang out with. He was always laughing, doing magic tricks, and having fun. Everyone enjoyed his company, wanted to be around him, and treated him like family.

Later in life, I learned that in addition to being fun guy, Uncle Louie also happened to be a successful businessman in an industry normally comprised of serious people doing serious things. What made Uncle Louie special is that he didn’t allow his occupation to define his personality and who he was.

We need more Uncle Louies in life.
