I’m grateful for my parents and my family. I’m grateful for my upbringing. I appreciate the memories and the unconditional love.

For Paul Nelson, who brought me to Minute Men Gourmet Foods, where I sold gourmet foods, door to door. Grateful for Cookie who saw something in me as I tried to get her to buy some steaks from me and one day gave me the opportunity to start my insurance career.

I’m grateful for Jim and Jeanetta Pollard, insurance customers, who introduced me to Steve and Nancy McDonald and got me involved in the Amway business. I’m grateful for Dexter Yeager, Tim and connie Foley and the personal and business development system they created. It changed my life.

Sometimes It’s easy for me to take you for granted and to forget that freedom isn’t free!

As I look back and count the blessings you have made possible, I’m grateful! And I pledge to you today, to continue to strive to be all that I can be and to help others to do the same and to support our free enterprise system and do all that I can to make a difference and add value to others every day.
