Over the weekend I got the chance to celebrate one of my best friends (Jon) marrying a girl WAY above his pay grade (Leanne)…she’s awesome and perfect for him. But in the midst of all the catching-up, seeing what else was going on, etc etc…I was asked the same question about 5 different times from 5 different people at different points in the night…

kids

HOW, no…WHY DO YOU HAVE FOUR KIDS!

(My favorite was from my friend Brett who was falling asleep in a chair, at about 1am eyes glazed in wonder…or weary ;))

It was funny because none of my friends have more then two, and seeing me (and knowing my crazy history) with four kids does not compute to them.

They think…honestly I don’t know what they think, but there’s an answer that I really only came to in the past year or so…

But here’s the underlying answer …

Kids make me less selfish.

That’s it.

Now of course I love my kids beyond what they do for ME…of  course my kids are fun, they make me laugh, the teach me about love, they show me my faults, etc.

But when it comes down to it all, they teach me to be selfLESS.

Clearly if that’s the formula, then with four kids I might be the most selfish person you know 🙂

But it’s true.

I’m selfish, but kids make me less selfish.

That probably isn’t true for you, but it is to me.

So this post really has NOTHING to do with marketing or John’s upcoming launches, but more to answer a question that’s often asked of me, and to show you a little more of Brad.

Best,
Brad
