Work hard. Follow your heart.
We are all on personal journeys. We spend our entire lives on this trip, creating a twisting path, dotted with mileposts highlighting events both momentous and mundane. For some this passage is easy and the destination clear. For others there are road blocks and dead-ends; frustrations that fuel a fire of doubt about ourselves and leave us confused about the purposes of our lives. The desire to surrender to an existence of no importance can become great. However, accepting that the journey is long and difficult, for a reason, can begin to bring order to the chaos. A man who knows all about the u-turns, detours, and delays of a long journey is Bill Welter. At thirty six, he has run the family bank, been forced to give that up, played golf semi-professionally, and lived as far afield as Scotland and Arizona. Today he is the owner of, and head distiller at, Journeyman Distillery.
