An Inspiring Example Of Being True To Yourself

“This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.” – The character Polonius, in Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

A very close friend of mine passed last Wednesday and I’d like to dedicate this weekly post to him.

His name is Derek Young and even though you’ve likely never heard of him it’s possible that his work has or will in the years to come affect your life or that of someone close to you.

In his work life he was a medical device inventor and entrepreneur, helping surgeons all over the world convert their ideas into products or devices that improved patient care.

He was only 51 and even though he did amazing work in the medical world his real legacy will be as a father, husband, brother and friend.
