Celebrating Milestones (3 million!)

What a milestone! The idea that 3 million of you find value in the ideas I share on this page is unreal. Many of you have asked how and why I started @thinkgrowprosper. Here’s the short version:

Toward the end of 2013, I hit a rough patch in my life. During that time I was reading a lot to help keep me sane. One day, I got the idea to compile my favorite quotes from books I was reading into an Instagram account. (I thought it would be cool to have a customized page of wisdom I could refer back to for inspiration).

So I did it.
And I kept doing it.
Not because someone wanted me to.
Not because I thought I'd make money.
Not because I thought it would be a career.
I did it because I wanted to.
I did it because I enjoyed it.I did it because I was EXCITED about it.

And then something unexpected happened: People started sharing my posts and relating to my captions. Lots of people. It turns out the content I was posting to inspire myself was also inspiring others!

Fast forward to today—3 million followers later—TGP has turned into an educational platform and media company that allows me to do what I love and help others in the process. Although the content has evolved with me over the years, my mission is the same: To share timeless success principles that help people enrich their lives.

Thank you for being here and for being part of the ThinkGrowProsper family. I appreciate you more than you know and I look forward to serving you for years to come.

P.S. A big thanks to my wife, Vanessa for getting me these balloons to celebrate this milestone!
