The family reunion we had over Thanksgiving was really great. Most of my family is from southeastern Texas and Louisiana, so I hadn’t seen many of them in a long time. I saw cousins I never see and cousins I had never met before. It was all about fun and solidarity.
My mom came up the menu and the staff provided the food — yummy Southern food! My mom put this all together and she was happy that everyone had a good time. All generations of the family danced and fellow-shipped.
On the last day, three of my younger cousins sat me down and wanted to know what I do. They see that I’m doing something different. They see me traveling all the time and they want to know how I make that work. It was nice to be able mentor young people to reach their fullest potential and set their expectations higher than just getting a job that they really aren’t into. I’ve gained a lot of this knowledge from mentors I’ve had in this business and from great books like Rich Guy, Poor Guy. I told them that if I’d had the opportunity to have started in this business when I was their age, I would have jumped on it. If you want to hear what I told them, how this business could work for you, let me know.
