I just want to thank you for writing such an inspirational story. I am a man and got so much out of the book. My purpose, drive, and direction were key elements I never payed attention to until I read your book. I always wanted to work in the business industry such as an economist or stock analyst, but I now have a passion for life insurance. Like you, I have always felt responsible for my friends, families, and strangers safety. I know what it feels like to be hurt because when I was 13, I found my dad's girlfriend in the shower dead from an overdose. My dad rushed all the way home from his business trip and ever since then I want to protect people. Same thing when I got this rare infection that almost took my life when I was seventeen and when my dad got in a boat accident and ended up with permanent nerve damage.
His girlfriend is now paralyzed and he is struggling to live day by day. He got myself and I life insurance and now I want to help anyone who wants my help. I am now nineteen and survived all these horrible events that made me stronger. Thank you for allowing me to find what I really want in life and to help financially. My dad owns his own food company and he has spoiled me since his business started.
Hopefully I will meet you at a meeting or around Orange County. Your fan forever, Andrew P
OMG! I loved the book! It was so good! I read it and was so inspired you wouldn't believe it. You were able to verbalize a lot of things that I've experienced and have thought. I never thought of myself as having to be the breadwinner. I used to spend 100% of my paychecks on clothes, shoes and make up while my poor husband or boyfriend paid for everything else for me. I never in a million years thought that I would have to work a 40 hr a week job or pay attention to my money. Well, after 2 divorces and a death of my ex husband things have changed big time and I am not the same anymore. Thank God. Your book touches on so many important aspects of life. I'll have to look to my past to see where these divorces and boy problems are stemming from....
Just going from being married to having to work full time was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. I was scared to death and I had a lot of credit card debt. My parents and my ex-husband were constantly having to send me money as I was not able to pay for everything the kids and I needed on my income. It was the most challenging thing ever. I had a job as a waitress, which I sucked at, and I would constantly pray the whole time I was at work that God would help me to be able to pay attention to all the details required of me....plus I really had to hustle to get my tables taken care of. I would cry almost every night because I was so tired.
I have been on auto pilot for a long time....in shock by the reality vs the expectation that I always had growing up about how my life would be. Your book is a great inspiration to me personally on how to get back on track instead of flailing along like I've been doing....
So thank you for writing the book, I think a lot of people will love it like I did and get an important message about living life on purpose! Great, great, book!!!
