Passion and daring

In Start up on December 29, 2010 at 8:44 pm

A fellow professional in marketing referred me to the blog of Tom Asacker (www. a couple of years ago.  Asacker’s blog is delivered to my in-box on a regular basis, and even though Brian and I don’t know him personally, we agree that Asacker speaks our language.

Just this week, Asacker did a blog post that we really appreciated reading as we’ve been spending every free moment working on the wet side of our brewery like it’s our sole purpose in life.  In this particular post Asacker wrote, “Your life’s purpose is the quality of your life’s experiences.  Living life with passion is following your passion.”

Passion is a good way to describe why we are continually pushing ourselves on our big life adventure.   Asacker also quoted Kierkegaard:  “To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily.  Not to dare is to lose oneself.”  We agree.

Passion and daring.  That’s what all great adventures are made of, right?

Here’s where we are with our wet side work…plugging away with the metal muncher, J-trim and recycled tin roof.  We should have the big wall of the wet side complete by the end of the week.

And if you would like to read the complete piece by Asacker, you can find it at

May you find something to be passionate and daring about in 2011.  Here’s to a great upcoming year, friends!
