Brayden's Firehawks Lacrosse Team

Brayden and his team won the NCJLA championship for their league, ending their Firehawks era as champs. Bray made a video with highlights from his spring season. He’s an awesome (no longer so little) dude.

World School – Around the World and Back with the Stroh kids

Stroh World Trip

Well, we dreamed up an adventure to take the kids and our amazing tutor (Ryan!) around the world to volunteer, donate, learn, be challenged, grow and have some fun.

Starting, Growing and Leading a Start-Up Company

Below I’ll share how I answered this question on Quora: Where is the difference between running a 5, 50 and 500 employee company? Since I have my own personal experience starting a few companies ( and Freedom Financial Network) and growing them from conception through the phases of the first hire; then ten employees; then 50; […]

Family Board Meeting… starting a new monthly mechanic to make us happier.

Last night our family kicked off a new format, borrowing from my work… a Stroh Family Board Meeting.

She’s won 89 tournaments, and 10 majors — which is just unbelievable.  She also, maybe more remarkably, got to play some golf with me yesterday. I had a blast and it’s […]

Put me in Coach! Why coaching a 7 year old lacrosse team is a lot like being a CEO.  Thoughts from the sidelines and corner office from Brad Stroh. I have learned a lot by being a Founder and CEO of a few successful entrepreneurial start-ups.  I have also learned a lot by being a dad […]

Closing Lecture on the “Entrepreneurial Path” from Irv Grousbeck at Stanford GSB


A good friend of mine, Kevin, just embarked on a new venture which reminded me of the anxiety/apprehension and general fear that jumping off the cliff of starting a new venture creates.  Reminiscing of when Andrew and I first launched our own start-up, I remember constantly re-reading the transcription of Irv Grousbeck’s last lecture in […]
