Jimmy: The Trouble Maker

 While working for my parents’ business I have learned a lot of things. I have learned about finance and the importance of managing funds. I have learned the concept of confidentiality. I have learned how to write ISP’s, goals, daily paperwork, yada yada. Every day I refresh my knowledge in business and the DODD field.Continue reading “Jimmy: The Trouble Maker”

Finding Narnia

My brother Levi has quite the imagination. For example, he has about two-hundred figurines, (elephants, cows, power rangers, little cheap kids meal toys, you name it!)

The Rat Race Matrix

Every day is a contribution to our life matrix—we have numbers representing our daily assignments as we race through our perpetual patterns over and over and over. From the chime of our morning alarm we jump out of bed, grab a cup of coffee, head to work, come home to watch the news while eatingContinue reading “The Rat Race Matrix”

Making Memories

Today my little brothers celebrated their graduation from high school. Just to test my theory on how big of an impact these dynamos have on the people around them, I asked everyone to explain any memory they had of Eric and Levi. These are the results! 1. 1st let me say congrats to Eric and Levi!Continue reading “Making Memories”

Branching Out

Tomorrow my little brothers are celebrating their graduation from high school. I can’t help but notice all that they have done and all the people they have influenced. Sending out over 100 invitations to people they know and looking through their numerous school awards shows that these boys leave a legacy in everything they do!
