“Great moments are born from great opportunity” Herb Brooks, 1980 USA Olympic Hockey Head Coach
I will be 50 years old next June and when I look back, I can really see all the great opportunities I have had in my life. Some of those opportunities I have taken advantage of to the fullest and some I’ve let slip through my fingers. But regardless of all the good and all the bad, I still find amazing opportunity constantly presenting itself. In case you were wondering, yes, I have been an eternal optimist my entire life.
One of my best friends, who has also become a mentor and big brother figure to me, said something once and it still resonates with me today “There are no shortcuts!”, having owned and operated Label Daddy for almost 14 years now I can confirm this statement is 100% accurate. Nobody will give you anything in business and nothing will simply be handed to you if you want to become a success. Hard work, dedication to your craft, focus, determination and of course, a bit of luck, will determine IF or not you succeed. The good thing is that there is no finish line. One may trip, fall and fail all along the journey. The question is, can one stay the course and make the necessary adjustments to make what they are trying to do a success? If they can, then, and only then, can they continue along their path.
Being CEO and Founder of Label Daddy over the past 14 years has been a roller-coaster of all sorts and I’m sure the next 14 years will be quite the ride as well. All of my successes achieved, mistakes made, and lessons learned simply add up to the fact that I am still inspired on a daily basis, by my now 19 year old daughter and 6 year old son, to be the best Father and LABEL DADDY that I can possibly be.
You’ve been placing orders with Label Daddy year after year and you’ve never stopped telling your friends how much you like us. Each year during the spring, as we all scramble to get ready for camp and soon after as we prepare for Back to School, both camps and schools continue to sing the praises of Label Daddy to families and friends. I want to say a very special and heartfelt thank you to all of you. Your support means the world to me and I never take it for granted.
All my best,
CEO and Founder
