What was the biggest turning point in your life?
I have had many turning points, so honestly hard to pinpoint one. I would have to say when I was in college, I had this crazy idea to raise enough money to send my Dad over to Europe and pick up my sister where she was serving a Christian mission. He had served himself in England and always wanted to go back, but my Dad being my Dad always put other people first and did not have the finances to let himself go visit again. I took on the goal to raise enough money from friends and family to send him over there.

After a few months of trying, I almost gave up, but I had this point where I said to myself, "I do not care if I have to sell my car, blood, sweat, tears, guitars, whatever, I will get him to Europe no matter what"

After I made that solid commitment, the money was found, I succeeded in my goal, and I cried with my Dad as I gave him the tickets and itinerary to have him go tour Europe, England, and pick up my sister.

That experience alone showed me that if I am committed, work my rear off, and believe when all others say that it isn't possible, I can make it happen. I use that in every area of life even now.

Imagine you woke up tomorrow and you had to start all over what would you do differently?
Relax more and enjoy the ride and allow myself to create some fun stuff just like now! Only thing I would do differently is do things earlier and not wait. This is a deep question so I will have to think on this one and I can expound when we chat.
