2018 Was A Special Year.
I did a lot of things for other people.
Supporting the ambitions of others to meet promise and potential.
Initiated connections between individuals and groups to
Meet common interests.
Facilitate business dealings.

Create new and enduring relationships.
Generally support ambitions of others.
Delivered numerous talks on how to conduct informational interviews for job seekers and professional development.
Supported what I believe is the most up-and-coming tech company in Vancouver, WA – RealWear. That includes providing support and friendship after I left.
Co-organized one of the year’s largest grassroots community events in Vancouver, WA, Meet the Meetups.
Obtained the support of sponsors – to whom I have given 100% effort in return to represent them in kind.
Backed local nonprofit, nConnect, through business development efforts and offering my time.
Volunteered for Global ADE.
Established a community campaign that has me interview local businesspeople (The Ambitious Among Us!) to learn about the person behind the job. To date I have published 5 articles about 5 terrific people.
Provided pro bono strategy-related services to several local businesses to help them with continuous improvement awareness, routines and agendas.
So What’s Next?
I cannot predict the future, but I have a feeling a lot of more of the same.
Happy 2019 to all!
