I had a friend ask me what 2013 was going to be ‘the year of’ for me and now I’m hooked. Rather than making resolutions I decide to have one focal point for that year, one characteristic I really want to work on. Last year it was influence; I wanted to be a person that made a difference in the world around me with actual influence rather than just adapting. If you ask me.. I feel pretty darn good about what I was able to do when my mind was set to it. 2013 was, to be honest, my favorite year of this God given life I’ve had so far and I have no doubt 2014 will be even better.
So let me ask you this: What’s your theme for 2014? What one characteristic are you choosing to improve this year above all others? Pretty exciting to think about, isn’t it!? To think that you could legitimately change something so much it’d impact the rest of your life.. man I love that.
This past year has been one I’ll never forget. We’ve gotten to be a part of some amazing events with folks like Vans, IMG, Intel, Audi, Aquafina, Verizon and the NHL. We acquired NCAA licenses for our home team(s), UofM and MSU, as well as the US Army. The highlight of it all? Meeting my childhood hero and having him sign the Straps we made for his event. Thank you MJ!
We saw ZOX expand more than I ever imagined it would, making tons of new friends from all over the globe. Canada, Mexico, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Brazil, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Thailand, Philippines, Russia and a bunch of others I’m sure I’m forgetting. It’s so cool to see people from all over the world come together because of their love for our little pieces of collectible art; I can’t say enough how thankful I am for each and every one of you.
On a personal side, this year has been epic as well. My little bros have taken on a tremendous amount of responsibility as we’ve grown and I’ve become the incredibly proud big bro. I also proposed to Kara on Christmas Eve at the beach in Malibu and got a ‘yes’ with some tears of joy. Man I feel like the luckiest guy on earth right now!
That’s about it for our new year updates. Drop me a line below and let me know what your theme will be for this year and how you plan on accomplishing it. I can tell you this – all three of the bros here at Zox are cheerin’ for ya.
