I grew up in Louisiana, born to a pair who lived in a 23 foot trailer. Dad was a graduate student in Wildlife Management and Mom was a clerk at the local grocery store to help put him through school. They worked hard together to gather pennies, build ideas, and follow dreams. It all worked out.
When you have no idea what real money is, you feel like you are always winning. Every step is a step up. I have always felt like I could choose the work that is right for me, not the work that makes money.
Thanks, Mom and Dad!
