This man beside me may not have a ton of formal education, but he has taught me more than I could have learned from anyone else.
He taught me to be kind. He still gets tears when he sees a special YouTube video or something nice happening for someone (even a win on the Price is Right)
He and my Mom taught me to work hard and never give up. They gave me my entrepreneurial roots.
They taught me to have faith, pray and believe.
Together they showed, by example, that you just do good, and be good to people.
He taught me to value every dollar earned and be grateful.
And among other things, he gave me that kidlike perspective on life. At 76 he’s still just a big kid with a few more aches and pains.
My Dad ❤️
He showed me you don’t need a big title to lead and influence others. You can do so humbly and quietly, but still have the same impact.
