Thinking through my life this evening, so blessed. Yes, I have taken risks, a requirement for any aspiring entrepreneur, but the motivation was never material, rather the greater good; whether senior housing, recycling materials, public schools, church or municipal service.
I have known moderate gains and suffered some minor setbacks (all teachable moments). In following my heart, I have traversed mutiple sectors for the sake of others and by doing so, have learned the joy of giving.
Truth be known, my only true capital has been spiritual. Pursuing a sense of calling, while guarding my integrity (at times tested), always being aware of the necessity of relationships and the gifts of others...the ROI on this journey: a personal sense of joy, that at times erupts in tears of wonder!
