Welcome to the Sales Pro Blog month end review of February 2014.
I use my month and year end reviews to recap on the general happenings in the previous month along with the posts that went live.
Not only are they used to refocus my attention on the things I want to accomplish here on the site, at times it also serves to show me how far I’ve come.
This review will forever hold a special place in my heart because the Sales Pro Blog is over 1 year old this week. The official launch was March 1st, 2013 and a lot has happened since then.
I’ve published 131 posts in this time on topics ranging from sales training, professional branding, career advice, life, failures, and as many successes as I can muster.
I’ve tried to impart what knowledge I’ve acquired in my journey and encouraged my readers to create their own travels.
Although I’ve been a little quiet in the blogisphere lately I’ve made some great relationships with other sales writers which has opened opportunities for me to be a expert contributor, and featured in two upcoming books.
Because of this site I’ve become a better writer, marketer, and most importantly sales person. All in ways I would have never thought possible and which would have never happened if I didn’t start sharing my experiences and writing my adventures down.
A year seems like a long time and it should because a lot can happen. If you want to get a blast from the past then be sure to check out all my posts from the year by visiting the archives page.
Or if you want a little more manageable chunk check out my posts from February.

On February 19th, at 12:54pm my son Bailey Levi Bravo was born. He weighed 7lbs 8oz and measured 20 inches long.
I’ve talked about about him a lot on this site. He life has had a big influence on my life. Even before he was born he dramatically changed my world view. Not only because he was our first child but because of the possible complications that we thought might exist.
The same day we found out he was a boy we also found out he would have a disformed right arm. And with that arm came a lot of possibilities well beyond our current medical knowledge.
As it turns out the universe still has other plans. He was born in absolute perfect health for which I am eternally grateful for. And at such a young age he has already help me rethink my worldview about sacrifice, humility, love, fear, drive, and happiness.
As we grow in age and career our understanding of the world changes. We react differently and change our priorities
