Patience – My New Secret Weapon

Learn about my personal journey and the discovery of a secret weapon – patience.

When I was a teenager I didn’t give a lot of thought to my future, I graduated high school not knowing what I wanted to do with my life.

Once I entered the workforce I found the Commercial Heavy Vehicle Parts Industry. This industry is perfect for me, it allows me to work in a blue collar industry while holding positions in Management and Sales. After 12 years in the industry, I left to start my own business which I successfully bootstrapped with a $700.00 initial investment and built a 6-figure contracting business that I sold 7 years later. Now I am back in the Commercial Heavy Vehicle Parts Industry and I am loving every minute of it.

Sounds like a great story with a happy ending right?
