Hey Jason, What a fantastic story, so so fun! I sold my first company to IBM back in 2003, and while it was not a huge exit it was incredibly meaningful for me and my family. My "splurge" purchase was one of the first iMacs. It is still sitting here in my basement, looking good. It was like a 3K purchase that I would have never made had I not sold the company. More importantly, we bought an awesome house in Livingston NJ and started a family. This house is our pride and joy, we would not trade it for any other place. Kids love it and love growing up in it. To me this wraps back all the way to my childhood memories, when I was growing up as a kid back in Ukraine. My family lived in 2 rooms - my parents and my sister. A tiny apartment on the 5th floor, where hot water was a rarity. This house we live in now is like from a different Universe. It really is. I often stop and think about my great grand parents and wished they would be able see us know. How far we've come, and this house we have how much different it is from the place I grew up in. I realize just how profound of a meaning money has on our lives. It is not about having a lot of money, although it helps of course, it is about the magic of enjoying the money you have and turning it into meaning.
