Another year has come and gone and so has the end of a decade. The last 10 years have been a roller coaster to say the least. We lost my wife’s brother and father and the family lost many loved ones, our son was born, our business came to be, my wife received her degree and many other great things. Time has shown me that experiences are a great teacher and mistakes must be learned from. I do not apologize for my blessings, but I do apologize for the arrogance that success can bring. The road in life has many twist and turns and I pray that I can obtain knowledge and wisdom. To remain humble is the ultimate goal and we must keep sowing seeds along the way. For those relationships that could not bloom, we wish you the best of luck in life’s journey! My name is Julio Rodriguez and I am Sole Boutique & Sneaker Palooza. Happy New Year to all who have given your continued support, we would not be where we are today without you!
