While I am not a millionaire…yet…This new venture has been an incredible journey. Part of ALL of my classes from now on will be, meet the person next to you, you don’t know what you don’t know. What I am learning is you don’t always realize WHO you know.
Quick shout out to my wife and family, I am truly blessed with my bride of 20+ years and not for a second has she doubted me or my ability to get this business up and running. It goes beyond blind faith, she believes in me, everyone who has someone in their life like that is blessed beyond measure. My kids are amazing, in following their mothers lead, they are supportive to an unrealistic degree, if I even pretend to look tired or show signs of doubt, I get a “You got this Dad,” or just hugs of support…truly priceless! Some people expect this kind of support from family, and I understand that, it is another thing entirely to live it through the roller coaster of life. I have the best sister on the planet, not even debatable. I am still discovering how high the bar my parents set is. I may never see it, let alone reach it, but I’ll keep reaching…
Karl & Melinda, I don’t even have words. Lou & Anna, you have come into my life at JUST the right time. Theresa, if ever there was a more stable dependable friend (and teammate) I haven’t met them. Pam, ah Pam. For those reading this who don’t know Pam, she is special. My wife and I don’t get to spend a lot of time with Pam (or that AWESOME Steeler fan husband of hers Terry) but these are special people. Out of the blue I called and asked for a favor the other day. Done with excellence! Lance, it’s nice to have a running mate. Keep it up, we will be wealthy together in the future!
So here is the thing. I just said “Thank You” to bunch of good friends I am privileged to have, and I didn’t even get to everyone! The person I believe the most is still ME. I believe EVERYTHING I tell myself, and that can be good or bad. I am old enough to realize I am not always right and when I start to doubt, or realize my confidence level is not where it should be, I seek out my family and friends. They help me get back to being me. Just wanted to say THANKS!
