I came halfway back around the world to be with my family in Ohio. This is our first Christmas without our mother 🙁
I had made a recent move to Vietnam in the hopes of starting one or two businesses there. As my mother and many successful people have told me you need to have more than one source of Revenue. I own a consulting company in Chicago that is doing well by the grace of God. We are five stars everywhere. Why am I telling you this?
I am telling you this because early this morning on December 24th I am making the five and a half hour drive to Ohio. I stopped at a Sunoco gas station in Portage Indiana. While attempting to a pay for my coffee and donut, the cashier Anthony happened to take notice of a rather large stack of hundred dollar bills I had pulled out of my pocket to pay with. It’s cash that’s meant for Vietnam. Cash that will hopefully help me reach some of the goals I set for myself there.
Anthony said “oh, it looks like someone’s going to have a good Christmas”. I instantly replied with, “I have worked my ass off since age 10”. I have worked so many 16 hour shifts. I’m certain I have done more work than most people do in two lifetimes. I mentioned my business because my business “is my blessing”.
My business is something I built over time, with blood, sweat and tears. The blessing is the thousands of customers who trust me.
So Anthony, I too have been blessed 🙂 and the world goes round and round…
Do some good with it Anthony!
Call your mother tell her you love her.
