"If you can fill the unforgiving minute with 60 seconds worth of distance run - yours is the earth and everything that's in it" - Rudyard Kipling

Doing the interviews with our guests on the podcast inspires me as I hear how they overcame challenges and moments of self doubt. A main theme between them all is that they took action. They filled the unforgiving minute with their version of 60 seconds worth of distance run

Now for our 25th episode overall, I am on the other side of the microphone. There are many more interesting and inspirational stories than mine but as I look back on my story so far, I am grateful for all the challenges that have shaped me and I feel very fortunate for all the twists and turns that have led me to now.

I grew up in South London, England and during and after college I was able to come to America to coach soccer. From coaching soccer in my 20's and many different challenges, twists and turns, I followed opportunities in sales where eventually I made my way to the merchant services industry. After a couple of years running the Midwest for a company I struck out on my own to form Regal Payments in 2009. 

When doing an interview like this you can always feel, "I should have said this" or "I should have described this better" but ultimately this is not an Abe Lincoln 6 part documentary so I tried to keep it concise and hopefully I was able to paint a picture of my journey so far for people.

My last comment is a quote from one of my favorite movies, 'Catch me if you can' that symbolizes hustle , struggle and finding a way through not giving up.

"Two little mice fell in a bucket of cream. The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse, wouldn't quit. He struggled so hard that eventually he churned that cream into butter and crawled out."
