The Journey

Lets talk about beginnings. Like most people, I came from the middle class. My dad was an electrician. my mother worked for a bank downtown. We grew up in the country. we lived in a log cabin my dad and family had built by hand.

We lived a good life. I got new shoes and clothes before every year of school year. I ca n remember getting the 1st pair of Jordans thinking I was so cool. But really I was just the Husky kid at school. I was not popular by no means. I was known but not popular.

Like most I thought I was destined to be an electrician just like my dad. I went to college. College was a joke, I was one huge after high school party. While in college, my mother was diagnosed with Breast cancer. It was weird, we thought she was pregnant or something. I think my parents were trying to hide it from us kids.

The Dr. gave her 9 months to a year to live. she lived almost 6 months. worst time in my life. But long story short I became an electrician. Now there is nothing wrong with being an electrician. You can make up to $125,000.00 a year doing electrical work. Oh then there is the aspect of being a contractor. You’re  your own boss. Well, thats what you tell yourself. Really you are just a glorified employee of your own company. You get all the headaches

Thats exactly what I did. I studied and got a contractors license I have had this electrical company for close to 12 yrs. Now let me be honest. I have met some good people and made some really good money running this company. I have also ate a lot of peanut butter sandwiches.

Me and my wife met a while ago. we have 5 kids, live in a nice house. My beautiful wife says everything we do in life is a stepping stone. We either step up or we step down. like to think of the electrical company as a stepping stone. Its my way to invest. This blog is my way of helping others to see that just because their family or parents were poor, they do not have to be poor. Someone once said, “being born poor is not your mistake, staying poor is”.
