It eventually has to happen. That call or email you get that lets you know the deal has been closed. So I got that call this week, actually two. And three more pending as I see it. It is very rewarding to have this happen to you.
I believe that the natural progression of things will bring excitement and then some disappointment. Some deals won’t go as planned and some will surprise us. But no matter what happens, we can’t lose sight of staying grounded and humble.
I also made the very worthy decision, along with my wife and business partner, to give 33% of our shares to two new partners. They need it more than we do, if not economically, more emotionally. These are hard workers who deserve better, and if you remember what I have said these last few weeks, you can’t preach if you don’t teach. So I am acting out and throwing a bold challenge to all the complainers out there, you don’t like where you are at, put your money where your mouth is and go make a difference in someone else’s life, not yours. That will display your true intentions when you complain. You are either a hypocrite, because when you have the chance you don’t act or you are a person of principle, because you act when you don’t have to. Which one are you? I am a man of principle and I am proud to say I now have honest and hardworking partners who will share with me whatever we make of this business, and I did not charge them 1 cent for their share……
I say this humbly again not to brag but to encourage you to do the same and help those that deserve your help and I promise you, things will then really make progress.
Keep calm and stay humble
