A visit with my friend Felipe

Felipe and I worked together a few years back and since then he’s had three kids all under the age of three. Recently he was given the news that he has a pretty massive tumor in his right leg. Through much deliberation the photo above illustrates the choice Felipe had to make. Through all of this Felipe has been unbelievable in his optimism that has stood unwavering through this hardship. Really an inspiration to realize that no matter the challenges you face in life, perspective and optimism will provide the guidance.

Such a good reminder on having the right mentality means everything.

I'm Tim. I live in Cole Valley, San Francisco with my wife, Julie, and two daughters Addie and Audra. I tend to write a bunch about leading Sales teams, since that's what I've been doing since 2006. I'm particularly drawn to the psychology of selling, whether that be how people buy things or sell things, it's fascinating how decision-making is centered into the core of who you are as a person. I enjoy cultivating a culture centered around mastery of your craft and a genuine passion for winning together. Outside of professional learnings, I enjoy listening to epic sci-fi and fantasy books while I run long distances to decompress and obsessed with watching my two girls grow. For a good ice breaker, ask me about my Golden Retriever and my Bernese Mountain Dog.
