Its A Family Tradition
Many months ago, I made the decision to pursue my passions through several different projects. Some of which are paid projects, some of which are unpaid, some of which are collaborations, but a few of which are mine and mine alone. I think I had already had that entrepreneurial spirit in me since a very young age. My father was a High School English teacher on Long Island for over 30 years, but he also owned a landscaping company that he mainly ran in the summers (his business partner took it year round before buying it outright).
But when my brother and I were little, we used to go on family vacations to Kitty Hawk, NC on the Outer Banks. We had a house up on the 10th tee of a golf course. Every night we would walk the course and search for lost golf balls. We would then go home, clean them up, and sell them back to the golfers who had lost them the next day. My brother and I had PLENTY of money every summer to do with whatever we wanted.
My Entrepreneurial Journey
I want to start by saying, I truly enjoy my 9-5 gig. But there is so much more I want to do and to provide for people utilizing my skills and education. So fast forward the many months since this all started, and I received my articles of incorporation; I am now at a place where I can begin actually seeing patients through Epic Therapy and Wellness and consulting through FGI Consulting in my spare time. I could not be more excited.
ONE THING I LEARNED TODAY:
The main thing I have learned throughout this journey, is that I could not have gotten to where I am with out the love and support of my wife and kids. I would also not be here today if it were not for the upbringing my mother and father instilled in me. Work hard, help others, and do the right thing, and you will end up just fine. So in reality, its like the great Hank Williams Jr says:
“When that doctor asked me, Son how did you get in this condition?
I said, hey sawbones, I’m just carrying on an ole family tradition”
