One of the reasons I love the holidays is that it makes people remember that even though we are all busy we still need to take a few minutes to give thanks for all that we have. So that is what I wanted to do in my blog this week. In the last 10 years, I have met some amazing people in a career and industry that I love and am so passionate about. This is something I do not take for granted.
So first, I want to thank all of my clients that have allowed me into their lives and trusted me to help them with the biggest financial decision of their lives. I understand how difficult a decision this can be and not having the right person there to help could end up in disaster. I have met and helped some amazing people over the years. Some that I am still close with and that means everything to me. When a client uses me again or refers me to someone they know, it shows that I had their best interests in mind and they trust me. There are few feelings in this world better than that!
Secondly, I want to thank the people who have supported me in my career. Mainly my family and friends. When I first started it was tough sledding. I was not earning much of an income but those around me saw the desire I had and encouraged me to follow what I believed in. 10 years later those same people are still encouraging me every day of my life!
Lastly, I want to thank my industry peers. I have had the pleasure of friending some of the best people in the world who not only supported me but also encouraged me to go after my goals. It would be easy for them to look at me as a competitor but to be looked at as a friend is amazing!
I want to leave you with this, be thankful for everything in your life. Stop and think about all you have. The people in our lives are who make us who we are. Thank them and make sure you let them know how they have helped make you what you are!
