Except the one with my father. I had the Sapporo earlier at my Lola's dinner. My father is my financial adviser and one of the only men I can truly trust. It was a difficult discussion of something I am ashamed to speak of: failure, even at the age of 36. I still do not want to disappoint my father. Instead, he understood my actions and gave me some great advice.

The third person I turned to has known me since I was 19, almost 18 years! He is also a very successful businessman and is a good friend. We met up in Pleasanton at McKay's Taphouse and Beer Garden for beer and Baci for champagne. At first he had a different direction for me than my father and other friend, then he said he agreed I was making the right decision.
And there's the consensus. When making big decisions, try to keep your emotions in check and seek advice from those you trust, know you well and have your best interest in mind. And a good cocktail or pint of beer can't hurt either. Good luck!
