We had the good fortune of connecting with David Tatham and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi David, is there a quote or affirmation that’s meaningful to you?
“Lest I keep my complacent way I must remember somewhere out there a person died for me today. As long as there must be war, I ask and I must answer was I worth dying for?” ~Eleanor Roosevelt~ The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience. Eleanor Roosevelt Both of them resonate with me as they teach me to 1) never take life for granted, to make sure I am living for those that died, be it military, cops, or my grandparents.. I am here today because of them. The other one is to just go out and do, be that yes man to adventure, I have tried and failed at many things but the biggest take away has always been the connections I make and lessons I learn.Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Hmm tough question. My normal job is a waste water worker where I work to play. Not play at work. But outside of that with every successful and failed endeavor I just do as I feel. I do all the research I can and i act on what I learn. The biggest thing I have over came is 1 learning to charge for my worth. Everyone ones cheap but not everyone respects cheap. 2nd is more research and learning as I go. My brand and story is tough cause it’s not one cohesive story. Items a mish mash of each obstacle. But If i had to pick something its do the best you can with what you have to highest quality that you can achieve and never give up.Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Boulder. I just love the area. In an outdoors guy so it fits my vibe. A normal hang out day would be a trail run, followed by drinks and lunch on a patio, shopping at pearl street watching the shows.. that evening hitting a speak easy and trying to capture life with my camera. We could stop at wonder wonder for pictures, rio for margs, boulderado for cocktails, the creek to just chillWho else deserves some credit and recognition?
Well biggest one goes to my partner in crime my wife laura is my ultimate hype man! I’ll look at here and say “soooooo I have a bad/good/new idea” she will then tell me “how much, how serious and how can I help” From my photography business, to fitness/event based and my race team she is always by side and sometimes even leading the way when I trip up. I’ll have an event idea tell people about and right away he volunteers that wanna help out. It’s amazing Next up would be my race team the “Colorado obstacle racer ” probably the most genuine and caring group of type A personalities that wants to see everyone be successful in work, life and of course racing.
