Father. Sales & Marketing Executive. Blogger. Traveler. Wine Enthusiast. 'Nole for Life. 40 with "Benes" brand is a mindset and belief that, like a fine wine, you get better with age. Experience, wisdom, and knowledge allow you to have real, raw, authentic takes on life and business.

Button-ed Up

What if you could age in reverse like Benjamin Button? The thought of gaining life experiences for 50 years and then taking all that knowledge and letting ‘er rip in your thirties and twenties does have some appeal to it.  

Age is simply a number. You are as young or old as you think you are in your head. I consider myself a 20-year old dude in a 4o-something body. That’s the premise behind “40 with Benes.” That mindset is about getting better with age like a fine wine…just don’t lie me on my side and keep me in a temperature-controlled environment. The older you get, the better it gets you get. Wisdom. Love. Strength. Experience. Relationships. Knowledge.

Sometimes age gets in the way of potential. It plays mind tricks on all of us. “I’m too young to contribute at a higher level.” Not true. “I’m too old to make the impact I want to.” That’s stinkin’ thinkin’. It’s not about age. It’s about passion, desire, energy, and motivation.

It really comes down to this simple question….

    I feel more alive today than I did when in my 20’s. Thanks for reminding us that some things get better with time.
