“I’m going to have so many packages to mail out every day,” Corey II sad to me the other day. It was such a proud moment.

Corey and Colton both talk to me all the time about my work which is so awesome. They are only 4 and 5 and they are interested in what Daddy is doing which to those of you who are moms and dads know that is something so special. I love that they want to know. It is a great feeling, but I also want to teach them so they will be able to make great choices with their life based on my experience and knowledge, they will not go through the things I have put myself through; they will be smarter and wiser.

The other day, I found myself amidst a great conversation with my boys. They were in the back seat and telling me about my work. So, as you may already know, one of my many business practices is a reselling business. I have three different online stores that I buy/sell and flip products all the time. My boys are very well aware of this; they have gone with me to many auctions and gone with me to buy new products and even helped package things to be shipped out. Mostly Corey has been interested, but he is older… Colton has shown interest but not on the level that Corey has.

….so, back to our conversation… They were telling me about my work… Corey was telling me how he had lots of work to do this week. I responded expressing that I had much to do as well… Corey proceeded to explain how he had all these packages to get out and so much work to do. I asked him if he would like to work with Daddy. He said, “yes.” I told him that I could teach him and Colton what I do, and they could help me. One day I could be there job. Corey responded, “I’m going to have so many packages to mail out every day.” I was so proud that he knew he could do it and although he didn’t completely process it all, he was confident in his success as well.

Truthfully, if you have gotten started building your business at an earlier stage in life, before you have a family and children, you have nothing on your plate and no excuses for not reaching great success…. But if you already have a family and children, you have something greater that you are fighting for. You are growing and developing all of this for them. They deserve you giving all you’ve got to your business… In no way am I saying to neglect time with them as that is crucially vital. But do not allow your business to suffer because of it. Dig deep, forgo sleep, rest and leisure, and fight and build this company.

Grow your business not just for you, but for them. Even if they chose to walk their own path; having seen you grow your business, will teach them discipline as well as ambition and so much more. They will learn from your actions and the way you grow with your business.

You are growing more than a business… more than an empire… You are growing a legacy to pass on to your little ones as they grow.
