The Early Years
Beginning at an early age, my parents promoted hard work and self-discipline making sure that my sister and I knew that we had to earn things ourselves and were not just entitled to them. Above all else, our parents taught us that we would only get out of life what we put into it.
Growing up I was like many kids my age, wanting to play sports and ride four-wheelers, however, unlike some kids who were just handed a seemingly endless supply of cash to support these hobbies, my parents taught me to work for these privileges. These lessons instilled in me a healthy appreciation for a hard day’s labor and made the rewards only that much sweeter for having earned them myself.
