This is it!  My first official “JamesHongGolf” blog post.  In actuality, it’s a little ‘thank you’ note to those folks that have helped me out, and those other people who I have had the pleasure of meeting over the last month or so.  All of these friends, new and old, have provided me with wisdom, courage, inspiration, happiness.  As Shawn Achor noted in his splendid TED Conferences talk, happiness leads to greater productivity.

Exactly one month ago, none of this was reality.  It was the farthest thing from my mind.  I have said this several times of late: I have learned more in the past month than I have the previous 17 years that I have been in the business.

Michael Jocson, Kirk Oguri, Ali Gilbert, Nick Chertok, Andrew Marr, Dennis Sales, Jason Sutton, Jason Helman, Sara Dickson, Rob McGill, John Dochety, Rob LaRosa, John Graham, Darren Stanek, Bob Lippiello, Chad Johansen.  The best pros/instructors.  The best trainers.  The best bosses.  The best friends.

“Lift off” is right, heading for the stars, the heavens.  ‘Cause that’s where all of our dreams are, aren’t they?
