Channel Manager - Golf

What inspires me is more of a personal answer which also helps to drive me professionally as well. I have a friend who is my age that became a quadrapalegic 13 years ago from playing flag football. He went back to full time work after 6 months, drives himself to work ( amazing) and has bucked the average of someone only living 10 years after this type of injury. While he has incredible financial and daily challenges he takes them with stride. He keeps life in perspective for me and inspires me daily.
The great thing about shoes is I get to be an ambassador for the best! I always tell people the two things you should spend money on are a good mattress and a good pair of shoes. Good sleep and comfy feet make for a happy person!
