24 Life Lessons from SwedeJan 15, 2022
A friend and mentor, Swede Roskam, recently passed away. He was in his mid-eighties, but lived like he was eternal.
One of his last emails was to my son at college, asking him to lunch the week Christian was home for spring break. Swede had a way of reaching out the younger generation, and they all loved being with him.
He also passed a lot of life lessons to those he mentored. Here are 24 Life Lessons from Swede, who was one of the most grateful and most generous people I've met:
