As with most emigrants
who leave home and family behind, it’s only when you are gone do you fully
appreciate and recognize the support and encouragement family represents. And I
was no different.
As a young lad I was eager to travel and seek my fortune. The
excitement of a new country and culture coupled with my drive and ambition kept
me moving full steam ahead. But I never forgot where I came from. And that has
sustained me greatly through the years.
Along the way I’ve sought solace and advice in the many
things my father taught me. And as you well know, our company is founded on the
principles of service and exceeding expectations that my dad and his dad before
him instilled in all of us.
We can always do with reaching out for help, looking to
others for advice and learning from those who’ve gone before.
Are there things your father taught you that could help you
today? Are there truisms your mother passed on that could do with a dust off?
Are there principles that someone influential in your life shared with you that
you could use to get through a challenge or a tough time? I know this much…things
my father taught me help me all the time!
It’s a good life!
