What is luck?

A student today asked me how I had the White House as my first client.

For years my answer was always “luck” but today was a bit different. My nemesis The Imposter Syndrome has been well versed in telling me for decades that it wasn’t my hard work, my dedication or my vision so it must only have been luck. I wasn’t good enough then to have the White House as my first client. What did I know about business? Why would they entrust something so special to a guy like me?

I remembered a podcast I heard today that suggests “…luck is when preparation meets opportunity”. By that definition I was lucky and I am proud of it!

Where has luck taken you?
