Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
He enjoyed his work as a corporate banker, but he sought an environment where he could really make a difference and express himself.
His mother showed him an article that showed that most retired people wished they'd taken more risks in life.
While traveling through America with his brother, they stumbled upon big band music and swing dancing.
Instantly drawn to the energy of the music, the people, and the steps, he made a New Year's resolution to learn how to swing dance.
After he had a good knowledge of the dance, he started teaching lessons.
He started Swing Patrol, which is now the world's largest swing dancing school.
His love for swing dancing is contagious-his classes grew from 23 people on the first night to over 200 people after eight weeks.
Says you need to be a little bit obsessive to build something special; if you get that little pulling feeling inside, you should follow it and devote yourself to it.
