Special Thanks... and I mean it from the heart


If you have talent, drive, desire, you can get to the places you want.  However, I always feel talent is about 50% of the equation.  Followed by 25% of just fate (however you care to explain it) and the last 25% who you know.


I have had ups and downs in my life, and career.  I owe so much to so many people.  And hopefully, I will contune to always do the right thing and pay it forward.  


But there are some people who really made a difference for me.  They took a chance when nobody else would.  Empowered me to do my best, and may have done something that changed my life.


To this, I would like to take the time to thank them here.  Granted, I don;t know how many people will actually read this... if any! But at least I feel like II have put their thank yous in the world publically.


If you are not here, it doesn't mean I don;t appreciate you, or like you.  This list has very specific ways about it.
