Overall, this was definitely much harder to choose between options than the other rounds. Everything listed here is important to me. They already survived the first round of scrutinization as I looked at them by category.

When it comes down to it, what’s most important to me now seems to be building into my wife’s life, and building into my own. Perhaps that’s because I’ve spent so much time working this business over the past few months that while it still excites and drives me, I feel a lacking in those other areas. It may change over time, but for now, these guys win the battle.
