If you missed yesterday, there was a moment when I was a younger teenager where I promised myself that I would never let my family fall into poverty like my family had and I kept to that promise. Trust me when I say that I know how hard these times can be and I genuinely hope that anyone reading this who may be in less fortunate circumstances can relate and stay positive.
Don’t ever give up and know that if I can get out of where I was at, then so can you or anyone else who have their minds in the right place.
Providing Is My Only Goal
Having lived in a house where my father couldn’t afford to fix anything or buy anything short of food and shelter, I worked relentlessly for years going to school and making sure that I would have a future for my family. After years of school, internships, and hourly jobs I finally got my degree in marketing and am now the lead project manager for a growing everyday firm in my town.
When my wife and I had our first child we wanted to start a new chapter in our life so we bought our first brand new house. Having saved pretty much every penny I could for over 10 years, we decided to spare no expenses because I wanted to give my family the life that I did not have growing up. Unlike my parents, we were able to afford hiring actual professional roofing contractors to upgrade our new home which is something I couldn’t have imagined in my wildest dreams as a kid. I genuinely cannot tell you the feeling of having come from a poor community to being able to pay for a house.
As a kid, we were responsible for fixing everything wrong in our house or yard and the majority of the time they were simply left alone to only grow as worse problems, which I will get into more next.
