Sweet Sixteen Poem to my daughter Jacqueline

May 16th 2018

Dads watch their lives go speeding by, always asking GOD why?

Dads must survive the daily grinding;
Hoping that you and your baby girl hearts are slowly binding

Dads try to relive their lives through their boys;
But they spoil their little girls with all the right toys

Dads always hope that your little girl will keep them as “the apple of their eye”;
Knowing you’re building them so one day they can fly

Dads cherish their little girls like nothing else ever;
And they know it is truly their most noble endeavor

Dads will always guard their little girl like precious gold;
While quietly teaching them to be beautiful and bold

Dads carry many burdens that are often unknown;
But only a little girl makes them feel Iike a king where they sit on their temporary throne

Dads never really like the concept of another boy someday taking over;
But they support secretly hoping one day they might get another four leaf clover (granddaughter)

Dads know little girls are truly spiritual gems that change your life from day one;
Dreading the day the little girl phase is actually done!

Dads sit around talking incessantly about their girls 24/7;
Hoping that their good work was enough to get them into heaven!

Happy Sweet 16, Jacqueline Christine Rose Steier!

Finally in the Black Hole in Oakland County Stadium

I have everything Raiders in my basement, I see them every chance I get, and bought one of the first personal seat licenses in the new Las Vegas stadium on the night they opened the lottery.

Why we should celebrate Lee Iacocca this July 4th!

From the first time I saw a Ford Mustang I knew I found my car. I remember seeing it in my favorite movie scenes in “Bullet,” “Diamonds are Forever,” and “The Thomas Crown Affair” where I felt my first irrational urgency to someday get one. The emotional attachments for me were the sleek lines, the vibrant colors, and the convertible tops, but at my childhood home the link was something much bigger!

Please support Light the Night

There are many times in life where we are reminded there are no coincidences, and nothing is random. My wife, Sony’s, leadership role as chair of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night is one of those moments where it all makes sense.

Our Last Dance with Dwyane Wade

The amazing memories, watching my kids growing up over the many Miami HEAT seasons, cheering our hearts out, the great night with friends year after year over the holidays, and now the realization knowing it was finally over for good.

What is a corporate reset?

When there is so much to say, so many aspects to write about on this topic, where do I begin? I myself did not even know what the term “Corporate Reset” meant before surviving through one — but I do now.
