And we're back! Sorry about not having Tuesday at 7 last week. Things got a bit crazy. But today we're back with my friend Jonny, and let me tell you about Jonny. If Forbes had a "25 under 25 Up and Coming Businessmen," Jonny would be #1. Easily. Jonny's gonna take over corporate American someday and it's gonna be crazy.
I know few people that actually dress the part for exactly what they want to do, but Jonny really does wear a suit like this almost every day. It's so awesome. It's like what every guy secretly wants to do, but Jonny just does it. He knows and has been mentored by some of the best marketing/business minds in the country and is always getting huge opportunities in that world. He knows what he wants and is called to and he just goes for it. He doesn't let anything hold him back. I love people like that.
On top of all of that, Jonny has a bigger smile than you and bigger biceps than you. The biceps are totally irrelevant. It's just true. But he really is one of the happiest guys I know. He's always smiling and laughing and having a good time. It was hard to get a serious face out of him this morning just because he's always so happy. He's always happy to see you and that's one of the coolest things about him.
Jonny and I both have one more year here at DBU. I know he wants to stay in Dallas after he graduates. He'll probably walk straight into a job with The Richards Group knowing him. I'm so jealous. That'd be awesome. I'm thankful for my friendship with him because he brings out a side of me that doesn't get to show a lot. We're both strategic and love business and marketing and reaching people with messages that matter. He's better at it than I am. But it's nice to have someone who gets all that stuff and loves to talk about it. We all gotta have those people around us who make us better and Jonny is one of those guys.
