The date August 12, 2019 marks the 20th Anniversary of my life's work at Sonshi, a website dedicated to Sun Tzu's Art of War.
When I first published Sonshi online in 1999, Google was a small search company contracted by Yahoo! to supplement their handpicked search results. When Yahoo! handpicked Sonshi.com to be the top result for Sun Tzu's Art of War, I thought I died and went to heaven. However, Google was where we went to 10 years later and the rest is history.
The reason why I started Sonshi was my obsession with Sun Tzu, but the main reason why I continued for another 20 years was because of the friendships I've built. One such friendship is with Trey Davis, someone who has been a supporter of Sonshi virtually since its inception.
As I am starting a brand new chapter in my life with GeniusOfLove.org, I feel fortunate for the wonderful successes through the years as well as the lessons learned. Life has cycles of good times and bad times, and so I am most grateful for good friends who remind me of who I strive to be daily by being who they are themselves: geniuses of love.
Thank you everyone for the memories at Sonshi as we create new ones at Genius of Love. Let's take flight and continue the fun. ☮❤
