We only live once. Let’s get to it.
A couple of months ago, my partner Dennis and I quietly put in motion a plan we’ve been considering for some time. That plan will culminate at the end of next week when we move out of our house in Denver to the town of Dillon.
Dillon is about 1.5 hours west of Denver. It’s in Summit County, home to some of Colorado’s top winter resorts. It has a bustling economy. And it’s an outdoor person’s dream. Nearby will be the paved path that circumnavigates Lake Dillon; the bus stop for the shuttle to Keystone, Breckenridge, and (my favorite!!) A-Basin; and trailheads for mountain biking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. Of course, what will be most interesting to friends, family, and colleagues is that there will be ample crash space at the new pad.
I can run Kinkennon Communications (KC) from pretty much anywhere, and Dennis can do his corporate job from pretty much anywhere. So we’re taking advantage of the flexibility and going someplace that’s not far but pretty amazing.
I’ll still make my appearances in Denver and DC – it’ll be a straight shot for me to both downtown Denver and DIA. Of course, I learned long ago that no one cares where I am. More recently, I figured out that the more fun I have, the better KC seems to do.
Coincidentally, the move will come at the same time that I’m winding down some pro bono commitments. (Some, but not all. I’ll still be involved in my little trail-advocacy and economic-development campaign in Bailey, CO.) More time for KC, and more time for fun! I’ve never been more enthusiastic about what’s in store for my consulting shop or our family-and-friends life.
Stay tuned for occasional updates on our new perspective from where the air is thin and clear. We decided: we only live once. Let’s get to it.
