(by Mike Blanding, father of Mateo)
I’ve never liked the idea of being vulnerable.
Never let them see you sweat. Strive in private, thrive in public. Don’t play games you can’t win. Keep a stiff upper lip. And always, always, always protect your personal brand. These are rules that I’ve lived by my whole life. Well… up until March, 2020, that is.
