Publisher’s Note April/May 2015

These last six years have been quite a ride! Our mission is to present innovative business and medical editorial content to encourage business development, and to provide in-depth profiles to promote the accomplishments of local business and medical leaders and entrepreneurs for their contributions to local economic growth and development. Reflecting on this, I find myself humbled by the support and the amazing relationships I’ve been afforded by this great community.

In November 2008, walking away from a rewarding career to venture into this chance opportunity I was given was not something I took lightly. Nor did I grow up thinking, “One day I will publish a magazine.” Sometimes certain things happen due to circumstances. For me, I had no idea that six years later, our success with this print source of media – practically the most challenging advertising medium there is – would be of such great impact to this community.

Just over a year ago, I took a leap of faith. Thanks to the full support of my wife and partner, Tracy, I stepped out on my own, rebranding the publication, Inspire Coastal Bend Magazine. Since day one of my 25 years in Corpus Christi, I have had a vested interest in the Coastal Bend community. I made a commitment six years ago to provide a publication featuring local business and medical stories. Creating Inspire has allowed me to stand true to that commitment and to continue doing what I love to do.

I am blessed to have built so many invaluable relationships, and I look forward to the many days and issues ahead of sharing the inspiration and triumphs of our local community. Our Sparkling City. Our Coastal Bend! Thank you for your support, and be inspired!
