    I had the privilege of meeting Ken in person a couple of weeks ago in North Carolina. He's just as lovely in person as you imagine him to be if you had not met him. I hope he is a presenter at next year's meeting. That will be very cool.

      While "lovely" isn't necessarily the word I would use to describe Ken, he is definitely one of the hardest working, most thoughtful and totally decent men I've ever met.

      Although Ken and I have "known" each other online for a couple of years we had never met in person until the WF Raleigh Networking Event. As I live in Florida and Ken now lives outside Savannah, GA it was practical for me to stop by and pick him up on the way to Raleigh.

      He and Barb offered me a bed for the night and Ken and I planned to depart his home about 9:00 AM on Friday.

      About 7:30 AM on Friday Ken started working. Just before 11:00 I forced him to get in the truck.

      In that short period of time I think Ken accomplished more than I sometimes do in a week.

      During the four days I was privileged to spend with Ken I witnessed decency in action.

      Ken is a man without pretense, subterfuge or agenda.

      Thanks, Mike, for posting this tribute. (Ken had nice things to say about you, too)

      I slept with Ken in NC (er, that came out wrong).

      "Lovely"? You must have a different dictionary from mine.

      OK, when he's not snoring like an old diesel engine with bad valves, he is a pretty quiet guy. Usually, because he's sitting in a chair in a corner snoozing.

      However, as to Big Mike's OP. Do note:

      He never gives up

      So important!

        This video reminds me of Ken in his younger days.

        Have a Great Day!

    I have been off with the family for the last several hours and had no idea this thread had developed. Thanks for all the kind words from all of you.

    Mike kept a close eye on me for several years and we still talk several times a week. It's always good for both of us to bounce our ideas off each other. Which is another lesson for all of us.

    Try to discuss your chosen path with someone you trust. Listen to what they say and incorporate what you can use. Then work it the way that is comfortable for you. Because the only way you will continue to work on your project is if your comfortable with it.

    I got to speak to Ken on Skype, how many years ago is it now. He was mentoring for Big Mike and niche mania.

    Since then I have been in a mastermind group with Ken, and many others.

    Ken works hard and is dedicated to his family and business.

    Finally got to meet Ken at Raleigh, and yes, he is just like you would expect. A quiet spoken gentleman.

    Thanks Mike for taking Ken under your wing, because if you hadn't who knows what type of business Ken would have had, and maybe we wouldn't have got to know him.

    Mike you know this... Ken has been an outstanding inspiration to me for as long as I have known you. And you repeatedly told me "if Ken can do it, you can do it"...LOL Just never give up!

    And Ken has been there a lot of the way to help me too (if only in exchange for lots of jokes)!

    I am deeply grateful to and appreciative of both of you even if I don't have Kevin's luck in sleeping with Ken.

    Thanks is a small word when it comes the kind of heart and support you two show.

    Michael that video says more about perseverance and reaching a goal than any of us could write and convey in 1000, 500 word post.

    And before anyone ask yes I'm old and grizzled and very much resemble the star. In fact he is better looking than me.

    Hey Rod,

    I like it when you post because and Old Geezer like me appreciates looking at the nice looking young lady in your avatar. Can't say much for the guy in the foreground though. :p

    Oh wait you said I was a gent, so I guess I should be. NOT!!

    Hmm! "Geezerology" you guys are putting me on the spot and putting the pressure on. I'm really going to have to dig my heels and see if I can come up with something that will be worthwhile for the folks that would read it.

    I can always talk to Sid and get him to send me more jokes and I could include those in the report. What would you guys think of me making it a once a week "Geezerology" tip. I'm thinking we could all have some fun with that.

    Mike,

    Fortunately for me, I've been learning all about "subliminal shenanigans"

    Without the super-hyper-uber-hush-hush-secret-underground-lessons I've since been exposed to, I would've missed this (forest? trees?):

    He never gives up

    It's only when you learn the truth that the truth becomes obvious.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Ken,

    I just wanted to encourage you by saying well done! Clearly the respect noted above from other elite warriors say a lot about you and frankly your character.

    Thanks for being an inspiration - we can always use that!

    Will

    PS - BigMike - appreciate you taking the time to share this encouraging story too. I wish we would see more of these type postings than some of the warrior-on-warrior condescending, ego-fueled, beat downs I've read lately. Nice.
