Happy New Year Everyone!

Happy New Year Everyone! 
I wanted to come up with a theme for 2024 and decided on this.
                  "Show Up Anyway" 
As we all navigate through the new year, opportunities will be born from challenges, but opportunities require us to show up anyway, even if the challenges threaten the comfort of all we know.

As the days, weeks, and months of the new year invite our attention to what is comfortable, we must avoid getting stuck in and with the status quo!

It's time to face challenges and embrace what's uncomfortable. Remember, disruption doesn't wait for invitations. It just shows up!

So, regardless of comfort in the status quo, invite disruption, look where the status quo refuses to look, and discover what the status quo missed.

Irrespective of the challenges on the journey towards continuous relevance, show up anyway. I look forward to seeing you on that journey.

Status quo is the killer of all that will be invented.

Here are my thoughts as Ares Capital sits at the intersection between dreams and reality

The first direction, which should be immediately recognized as the wrong direction, is the one continuing in the same direction.

The second direction to avoid is turning towards fixing the problems by throwing in more money.

The third choice is to remain stopped at the intersection and do nothing. Of course, sooner or later, a tow truck will be called to haul your inoperable vehicle to the junkyard.

The right direction is turning towards the liquidating of Visual Edge IT by its pieces. Ares Capital should take a new journey that has a clearly defined destination.

I witness newcomers attempting to become the print industry’s new ERP, the promoter of an e-commerce site that lacks the realities of e-commerce or those still attempting to reinvent the latest managed Print Services Software, not to mention all the new AI experts.

I can’t help but scream, “LEARN FROM FAILED FORZA!”
