Hey guys, so today I want to talk a little about who I am. My name is Matt and I am a 32 year old who lives in Utah. My father, who runs a vinyl window business, at one point was ready to give the business to me. However, its not something that I wanted to do forever. I can remember ever since i was small working in the family business, and telling myself, “this is boring”
But, it gave me a little bit of money to buy shoes, which I am a huge fan of. I guess you can call me a sneakerhead. I’ll tell you guys about my collection in another post.
Anyway, sometime last year, we were sitting down around the dinner table at our Sunday family dinner. and my dad brought up the topic of him retiring..
the conversation when something like this..
“So guys,as you may or may not know, I am getting a little older” (my dad is pretty sarcastic)
“And I think its time for me to pass over the reigns of Vinyl Windows Specialist Co to one of you”.
Now me being the oldest of 3, all being boys, I knew he was talking directly to me.
I said “Well Dad, I’ve been thinking, and I think i want to go into a different career.”
as you can imagine he was shocked.
you see over the last couple years. I’ve been feeling like there is something better out there for me. Not saying the family business isn’t great. It always pays the bills, and then some. But me personally, I want more. I want to be more. This led me to coming online and looking at other options.
At first i thought, maybe I’ll go back to school. But honestly, that was just never really my thing. I got decent grades, but i just couldn’t sit there while the professor taught me on things that I was not going to need in the real world.
One night while online, I came across Jim Rohn.
I’m not exactly sure what I was searching, but oh man, I’m glad I did.
It was like he was talking to me.
Directly to me. He said something like “If you aren’t willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for ordinary.”
This HIT me!
I knew that I needed to make changes in my life.
Ever since that night, I have become a student of Jim Rohn.
I want to use this blog to show you how he has impacted my life, and how he can do the same for you.
Follow me on this journey!
To Our Success, Matt.
