An Open Letter About Purpose

Pardon me while I ruminate a bit on past and current events. It's been a long trek from when the online community known as The Crossover Alliance (birthed in San Francisco, California over four years ago) was upgraded to a small press. It seems like just yesterday, and yet it also seems like a lifetime ago. It was a little over two years ago that my wife decided to leave me. It, too, feels like just yesterday, and yet a million years ago. Two events. One celebratory, and one incredibly devastating. You're probably wondering what the two have to do with each other.

What is important is that the divorce put me in some pretty deep mud, spiritually speaking. Instead of focusing on the company, I found that I had to focus all of my energy on saving my marriage (in the beginning), and pulling myself back together (after the divorce). During that process, I slipped out of my daily duties with social networking, our blogs and newsletter, and even some of our projects. I did very personal post on the event on my website, which you can read here. It's taken me until these last couple months to really come…
