In the first blog post I wrote nearly three years ago I cited Chinese Philosopher, Lao Tzu –
“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
Since then I’ve taken many steps, journeying in different directions, focusing on private clients, developing video and other content for Wall Street Teach, but this blog got left behind.

If you’re on a journey that’s worth taking you may not be able to see your destination from where you are but what matters is you keep taking steps towards what you can’t yet see.
Even then you might not arrive where you planned, in life there are no guarantees, yet as those on the journey know, it’s not the destination that defines what becomes of your life, it is the journey you take that shapes who you are to be.
