2017 had to be the most challenging year of my life. I am a firm believer all things in life happen for a reason. We are faced with the challenges today to prepare us for the battles we will fight tomorrow. In business I found myself questioning everything about what we were doing. Thanks to some important people in my life I was able to climb out of some scary situations. Often times we are told we cannot do things. We are told it isn't possible for us to achieve a goal. Those things are left for others to achieve but are not meant for us. Sadly, most often these words come from our closest people in life. A family member, a so called friend who says they will be there no matter what.
Luckily, I have a wife that when she said her vows, she promised to see it through with me in sickness or in health. She promised to be there whether we are wealthy or poor (and trust we have seen poor!) I have family members that have been there to not simply cheer me on, but have been there to pick me up off the floor and say stand up and keep moving forward (thanks Frank and Rowena). I have a friend that took the time to come and work for me when he was given leave from his military TDY because he was only an 8 hour drive away and he believes in my company (this will not be forgotten Juan Gonzales). I have another friend who has been around some very famous people. Has friendships with people with money, and power. Yet this friend said to me, "I see a diamond in the rough with you and your business." Joe Kerry, thanks for being there when I needed an ear to listen to my non-sense because my wife couldn't take it any longer!
I almost did not make it through 2017, and 2018 has started with us resolving a few final issues from the previous year. This is necessary as very soon we will begin to realize our greatness as a company.
2018 I promise will show our best. I presented some new items to a company today, and had a friend help me with a catering for the same company. He took the time to sample the items presented and looked in amazement as he could not believe how much better our product has become. Thanks John and Sharon for showing up to help out during a stressful time with such short notice.
