Welcome to Champagne Avenue!
Champagne Avenue is the professional blog of David Whitrow, MBA, CPA, CMA.
I started this blog with the purpose of creating a space where I could showcase the people and ideas which inspire me to do live greater today than I did yesterday.
I have lived an incredible journey and the biggest lesson that I have learned is that following ones passions is a the not so secret secret of a truly prosperous life.

Please enjoy the thoughts I share on these pages and comment and share where you are inclined. I absolutley appreciate your support.
