I’m here to let you in on a little secret: when you combine what drives you personally with your professional life, you open the door that allows passion to flow through all you do. You become better, all around. To me, there’s no greater example of this success than my dad.
For over a decade, my dad has been a competitive bodybuilder. His intense zeal for health consistently pushes him to be the best that he can be, both physically and mentally. My dad is now 71 years old, and is at the peak of his craft.
This passion is evident in the way that my dad conducts business, as well. These two seemingly contrasting loves, bodybuilding and insurance, are both intrinsically within him. He
combines his knowledge and expertise in both areas to not only promote his work, but to help others while doing it. When you are enthusiastic about work and can connect it to what really drives you, you enter a state of flow. You become your highest self, and you can rise to any occasion.
I have learned a lot from my dad over the years. He’s a proud man, and he promotes vigorously the virtues of honesty, morality, and passion. And although I’m not one for the spray tans and speedos, I carry with me my dad’s passion for athletics and health in each race I run. I aim to set an example in the hospitality industry, just as he has in the insurance realm. I guess you could say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
