Its times like these, when I believe in the Power of 3!

There is a point in every man’s life when the time comes to take stock in his situation, gather inventory of his dreams and dare to do it, take a risk and make his life.  I was there in the spring of 2004.

After completing an incredible journey to Athens for the annual Ohio University Sales Symposium, I was facing a long drive back to my real life in NYC.  Its not like I didn’t know it was coming…  I had been in this place before… and I knew what it felt like.  It was time to embrace a risk, disrupt myself and be the man I was meant to be.

That summer my wife and I took a fairy tale trip to Spain: attending weddings in Bilbao, sunning on beaches in Barcelona and touring bull fights in Madrid.

Of course, just before I gave notice and sailed the quick confines of AT&T, to join in starting an innovative business model to the power of 3 creating exceptional outcomes in service delivery.

Welcome Charlotte Rae Kaple!

She was born one evening when the sun didn’t shine
She picked up a shovel and walked to the mine
She loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal
And her Mother said well a bless my soul!

You load sixteen tons what do you get
A beautiful daughter and no regrets
Saint Peter don’t you call me ’cause I can’t go
I owe my soul to Charlotte Rae Kaple!

She has been making music literally and figuratively in our life since joining us on June 7, 2011 at 9:49pm, 5lbs and full energy.  The nurses say she’s been singing all night in the nursery.  Certain to steal the show and be the apple of my appalachian eye!

Mama’s don’t let your babies grow up to be Consultants

Don’t let ’em write business plans and start new ventures, make ’em be doctors and lawyers and such!

Here’s to the greatest mother in the world, Marilyn Kaple, whom the world has to blame for any excesses in volume, drama, stubbornness, talkativeness, creativeness, can do pro activeness and all genuineness, passion, loyalty and love that I may personally possess!

And here’s to the greatest mother-to-be, Stephanie Kaple, whom the world has to celebrate for not only putting up with all of the above but contributing her own insightfulness, understanding, confidence, support, nurturing, growing and caring enthusiasm into my life everyday!

It is very fitting that my release of the second Kaple 2.0 Chapter on growing up in Dayton be on Mother’s Day.   It was my mother that started to bring this story to life and its my mother-to-be that will start its new beginning with our own family soon.
