I want to share a story with you.
I was born in Pittsburgh but grew up in Chicago. After flitting about the country throughout most of my 20s and 30s, I had an opportunity to move back to Pittsburgh to take a promotion for work. Our sales force was expanding and I took over a newly created sales team that covered the PA and upstate NY region.
We were living in a beautiful suburb of Pittsburgh called Cranberry Township – gave me perfect access to freeways going north and south and the PA turnpike going east and west – so I can easily get where I need to go. Just me, my wife and our two sons Connor & Owen.
The facts of the following story are true. I remember them so clearly for reasons that will soon become abundantly clear (I hope).
