What gets me out of bed in the morning is…
What gets me out of bed in the morning ismy family. Literally, but figuratively too. Married at 22. First house at 24. Graduated college at 25 while holding our first son who was a month old. Upgraded to a second house at 29. Second son at 30. Family dog at 34. Rose through the ranks in a corporate setting to be at Senior level leadership at 32. My life in many people's eyes has been a picture of the "American Dream". But like so many Americans, that dream wasn't handed to me. I come from a blue collar rural family who was persistently broke; teetering on the edge of poverty. Thankfully though, my Dad instilled in me a strong work ethic and a "never give up" attitude. Because of that legacy he passed down, and the daily inspiration my wife and sons give me, I am where I am today. Grateful.
