I remember when I figured out that I wanted to be different. My mother took me to see Elvis in concert a year before he died. I knew at that moment I wanted to be a part of something great.
Because of that concert I spent years learning how to play every musical instrument I could get my hands on.
Fast forward thirty something years later and I find myself working with my best friends to build the most innovative hosting company in the world.
I learned after many of my own concerts that it was "making a difference" and not a hit album that I was truly in love with. To steal a line from my favorite book, "I who knew not that I knew not, now know that I know not...and that's progress."
Not unlike the Beatles, SoftLayer is a phenomena that is larger than life. It's a culture. It's a way of life. It's how you do business. It's a necessity.
It is to be continued.....
I now know why Elvis left the building, it was to make room for SoftLayer.
