Man, what a f**king year 2020 was. 

I'd like to take a moment and thank you for your continued support through the toughest year of my life. Thankfully, Hardworking Gentlemen was one of the bright spots on an rough year overall. Running a self-funded, small business is stressful and I care (probably too much) about making sure you are happy with the products and service you receive from HWG. In early March of 2020, my daughter was diagnosed with a blood disorder just prior to COVID lockdowns and my wife spent the majority of the year back and forth between hospital stays, treatments, and tests. (Due to COVID, only one parent is allowed into the hospital with your child.)

Reflection 2020We were all forced to isolate, retract from our daily routines, relationships and through it all, we're still here. In 2020, I realized that I was suffering from anxiety and depression for the first time in my life. These new feelings lead to more stress, frustration, and a lot more grey hairs. But ultimately, they also gave me a great appreciation for the things I have and can control.  

Life will go on and if I can take one thing away from the difficult year, it is the power of POSITIVE PERSPECTIVE. So, get ready to hear a lot more positivity from HWG!

Positive Perspective I try to not be one to rant and don't assume you care about my opinion but I appreciate your support and please know that I appreciate you! If there is anything you need, please don't hesitate to reach out and I am more than happy to assist. 

Thank you for making HWG what it is. I appreciate each and every one of you. 

Have a great year!
