I want this blog to make a difference in your life and mine. I believe we are here on earth to make a contribution, to make this place better — and ultimately that’s why this blog exists.
I’m far from perfect, but I do know how to be genuine and that is something I’d like to share with you.
To me, being genuine means being unafraid to talk about life exactly how it is: a series of ups and downs, joys and sorrows, pain and triumph. That means this blog will be kind of like riding a roller coaster naked (while sometimes talking about men’s grooming products). There’s something for everyone to enjoy!
I was born in Warsaw, a small town of about 14,000 people in Northern Indiana. It gets pretty cold there in the winter, so if you’re an only child like me you’ve gotta make some good friends unless you want to spend months in a row by yourself. I’m grateful to have a handful of my best friends join me on this journey to add unique perspectives and life experiences, to keep me honest, and probably to make some pretty bad jokes. I think it’s an awesome combination and I hope you do, too.
Some of the most interesting, genuine, and memorable conversations I’ve experienced have been in rooms made out of Mahogany. Whether a cigar lounge or quiet bar, I associate Mahogany with “doing something important with the people most important to me.” That’s the same vision I have for The Mahogany Workplace — and I’d love for you to be a part of it.
