success

song pair: The Boys Are Back in Town by Thin Lizzy

it has been a surreal week for my southern gent. he accepted a role change in his career, and it was announced this week. he is exuding appreciation and confidence for the opportunity.
the thing is...he has always understood the key to success. he has shared the key with me and i am going to share the key with you.

its all about the people you have surrounding you.

"you don't do great things, without great people around you."  he says all the time. i believe him. he lives it. southern gent invests in good people. He is still best buddies with the guys he grew up with. he has cultivated new friendships as well, branching out independently. somehow he naturally attracts great people.

this was proven one morning this week when i texted his childhood friends wives, asking if anyone was available for an impromptu surprise that evening in his honor. the responses were a resounding YES. babysitters were booked and schedules were changed. his friends dropped everything and showed up.

i will never forget the look on his face as he strolled into the restaurant and spotted the communal table filled with his favorite people.
