Relationships matter. If we're going to trust each other, then we need to be honest. Me included. Here's who I really am.
I am conservative. I believe in small government, personal responsibility, equal opportunity, fair dealing, and the magic of our free market system.
I believe in small business entrepreneurship.
I read Fox News, Politico, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and The Atlantic. Sorry, but I can't stand local news.
Full disclosure: I also love Minnesota public radio.
I struggle with anxiety. For more than 13 years, I have worked hard to always "appear" professional, while secretly worrying way too much about what others thought of me.
What do I worry about? Probably the same things you worry about. Whether I'm successful enough. Whether I will be able to retire. Whether admitting to anxiety is a "huge" career mistake. Whether I will disappoint a client because I can't fix the system.
