Today is Gary Vaynerchuk’s Good People Day, and I know that there will be a lot of people blogging about good people that everyone knows about. I’m going to talk about some that maybe not everyone knows about. If you are not on the list, it’s not because I don’t think you are good. Anyone who is part of my life right now is in my life because they are good people. I weeded out the un-good ones long ago.
So, here’s my list, in no particular order, and why I think they are good people.
My parents, Joe and Evelyn – They’re good people because I wouldn’t be here without them, and because they are sweet, kind, generous and loving. And they don’t care when I mess up.
My brother, Mike – He’s good people because he’s the only guy I would ever want for a big brother. And cuz he doesn’t care either when I mess up. And because he’s a good Dad to my nephews.
My husband, @G_reg – He’s good people because he married me. And he puts up with my crazy ideas. And he loves dogs and cats.
My friends Cheryl and Andre and Caroline – They’re good people because I’ve known them longer than almost anyone, and they are really really good at being good friends.
My friend Joanne – She’s good people because she is wise and giving and loves people for who they are.
My friend and business partner Jen – She’s good people because she is one of the most generous people I know and she lives from the heart.
All of the Web friends I’ve made over the past year or so – guys like Jay Moonah, Mark Blevis, Bob Goyetche, and Chris Brogan – They’re good people because they are the very definition of good people – positive, friendly, caring, and generous. You know that the minute you meet them.
The friends I’ve reunited with via the Web, like Stacerella, Stew, and Lexie – They’re good people because they are the real deal, the kinds of friends that you have forever that will be there no matter where your lives take you.
And, Gary Vaynerchuk – whom I have never met in person, but who has proven himself to be one of those very very good people.
Who are your good people? Feel free to comment and let the world know!
