What a ride. I wouldn’t change any of it. Sure, there were (and are) good days and bad days, but the bad aren’t so bad, since even on those days I have my health and my family, which includes everyone on the BFO team and our clients. This is one of my favorite places to be on the planet—surrounded by some of the best people the planet has to offer. Every day that I get to be here is an amazing day.

Words can’t really express how I feel sitting here today. The best words I can find are “thank you.” Thank you, thank you, thank you! Everyone that is a part of BFO makes it a great place to be, and for that—thank you!
