I’m blessed to be living the true American Dream. I had it all, lost it all, and got more than I could have even imagined back.
Some might say I was “born with a silver spoon in my mouth.
” My father owned his own business and did very well for himself. When I was 16, he left and took all “his” money, leaving my mom, 2 sisters, and me with nothing.
Now, I didn’t have the answers to ALL life’s questions like most teenagers believe but I did know:
1. My family was my world.
2. We were not settling for the life we were handed.
3. I was going to bring others up with me.
It took sacrifices but I did it. I put in EFFORT, COMMITTED to the PROCESS, took every opportunity to LEARN, and shared WINNING FORMULAS with my teammates. I SHOWED UP every day, kept GROWING, and became a LEADER without even realizing it. Before I knew it, I was mentoring other leaders and developing AWARD-WINNING teams.
Eventually, the scale always tips in the corporate world and you realize you are giving up more than you are getting. In my early Thirties I decided to explore other options.. I knew there were opportunities online but was over-confident in my ability to adapt to new settings. I paid a lot to learn the wrong ways before I realized what I needed to do.
I did what I’d always done before. I found the smartest people in this space. I SHOWED UP, COMMITTED, LEARNED, GREW, PLUGGED INTO A WINNING FORMULA, & my EFFORT paid off!
I have my life back. My wife and I live OUR LIFE, my family is well taken care of, and best of all -
I’M TAKING MORE GREAT PEOPLE WITH ME THAN EVER BEFORE!
