Hi. I’m John Pa, well, you probably already knew that, since name is plastered all over this blog.

Anyway, for more than a decade, I’ve been entrepreneur. Prior to that, I was in high net worth banking. And before that, believe it or not, I was a minister. If you ask me, I will pray for you.

I know. You didn’t see that one coming. I zagged and zigged in my career. I’m the co-founder and Managing Partner of Grain, a technology and website development agency, specializing in Drupal and e-commerce, in St. Louis.

I’m happily married with two wonderful kids. Somehow I seem to fall deeper in love every day. I’m a follower of Jesus, and I’m terrible at it, following that is. I love to read, meet new people (even though I’m an introvert) and explore New York City. Every day, I seem to crave either ice cream, bagels, pizza and soup dumplings. I’m the most pregnant behaving man you’ll ever meet. And, I do hope we meet someday.

I believe that we learn the most from our mistakes, and I share mine for your benefit.

My goal is to post new content every Saturday morning. My wish is that you walk away hopeful, as you press on into your life and work.

Lots of love,
