Shared Strengths

It's so empowering to receive a prestigious award, but let me tell you a secret that winners know.  It's really shared with other amazing and inspiring folks who helped immensely along the way.

Last Friday at The Conclave I took a few minutes to thank my parents, Dick and Jane Albright, who taught me "good, better, best, never let it rest, when your good is better, make your better best" and imbued the values that have driven me all my life. 

I mentioned Chuck Crouse, the night jock on my hometown radio station when I was a high school kid (he went on to much bigger things) who found time to teach me the basics. 

I recognized Rusty Walker, for making me better with his passion, smarts and energy during more than three decades of competition.

Then, I ran out of time, so over the next few days, I'd like to mention some others who were very important to me and a lesson I gleaned from my experience with them.
