Most Read Blog Posts

While I've been writing my blog for a few years, I still feel humbled when people take time out of their day to respond to it. What matters most to me is whether the posts I write are having a positive impact on those who read them. With that in mind, I wanted to share some of the posts that have been most popular with readers over the years. Whether you're a follower of the blog, a new reader, or even a critic, I hope you find the following list both relevant and interesting.

Why do some people make it and then others, people with talent, real go-getters, fall by the wayside? And why is it that all accountants, people who understand the science and structure that all business is based on, don't all go on to make brilliant business people?

It was 4 years ago. I remember every footstep, the feel of the sand between my toes and the heat, the fantastic heat beating down on us. Holding hands, like you'd hold a child's weaving between red and blue of a derby day, but all alone, not a sound and not a soul in sight.

You are out there somewhere. Just like I was. Lost, looking for a path that has no road signs, no obvious markings and no one to help you on your way.
