Inspiration: Don't Be Afraid to Dream Big

UC '02

Inspiration: New job starts tomorrow. I'm going to try my hardest to balance everything (Family, work and blogging) so bear with me.

Don't be afraid to dream big, to ponder your possibilities. 
-Branden "Skip" Brooks (UC graduation speech '02)


  1. Impressive.class president! Good luck tomorrow, with your attitude and strong family support you can't help but succeed

  2. @James
    I was class president all four years. :)
    Thanks for the support and kind words.

  3. Good luck tomorrow, and every day moving forward. I'm getting ready to start a new venture myself, and it can be incredibly tricky to balance everything! I'm a big believer in the "big self" and the "little self." If all is well with me as a person (the "little self"), only then can I be good as my "big self" (job, family, friends, obligations, etc). Best to you!

  4. Play, live, and pray hard. You'll be just fine. Best of luck!

  5. Skip, been following for a long time and love your blog, congrats on the new job and living in the lehigh valley trying to bring some style back here. Love lacrosse and LL Bean, keep doing what you're doing!

  6. You go Skip, I know you are someone who turns dreams into realities, for your self and will be awesome in the new job.
