My Life Influence

A big part of who I am, and yourself, came from our parents upbringing. My dad was a huge influence on my life. He is what I call a hustler, his own man, and yes, an entrepreneur. He owned several businesses in his life, from a car detail lot, selling sandwich board signs along side the road, and ultimately, his true passion and calling, restaurants. He owned several in his life, and the last one he owned 20 years before he died at the age of 84 in 2016.

Watching my dad as I grew, and I watched him close. I thought my dad could do it all. It took him many ventures, and many years to become the success he was. It came with personal sacrifice, long hours, hard physical labor, and most important, a will to succeed in owning his own business. The word quit was not in his vocabulary. These qualities and his teachings would rub off on me, starting at age 25.

Where My Drive Started.

I started, with some front money from my dad, a passion, a deep desire, and a strong will to start my own lawn business. I had no customers and all the equipment to start. Dad said start knocking on doors, and I did. Armed with fliers, and no fear, well, maybe some fear, I just saw money, so I overcame being shy talking with people quickly. I was gonna grow this thing and make my own money.

Five years later I had 2 employees, 65 residential and commercial accounts. I also landscaped these accounts, and did spring and fall cleanups. I put in all the effort, sweat equity, advice from my

dad, and a lot of hours to make Cut-Rite Lawn Service a trusted service in my county in Michigan.

I do not want to get to far ahead of my self here. That first business I sold For $40,000. I was 30 when I sold, but I wanted something new. I love the fact

I could operate my own business, make money, and from my home. I was the boss, on my own terms, and really, I’am a darn good salesman. I want to

show you if you have the internal desire, the passion, the I want it attitude that gives you tunnel vision, there are many home businesses in the universe, and a lot do not require the back breaking sweat work which I have been involved in for most of my life.

I have had a total of 5 different businesses in my life. People would say, that’s not gonna work, are you crazy, your gonna fail. That would just motivate me to show them. I always liked the look on their faces after I accomplished something. You truly fail yourself, if you listen to others who are negative. Surround your self with positive people, optimistic people, people who have things you want, Successful people.

Why Do I Care About You?

When I was creating this magazine, and this article, About Jim The Author Of This Website, I wanted to stress the point of why Am I telling you this, why do I care if you succeed? Because a long time ago, My dad believed in me. He gave me a shot, he helped me. What kind of person would I be after receiving guidance, help, and positive energy for me to be my own boss all these years, if I didn’t share my story and Tell you what drives me, what gets me excited, and wakes me in a good mood in the morning. You, yes you, can find that get up and go again, I promise. I just feel its time I gave back, to show you, I am 57, but I am not a quitter, and I still have passion, and that tunnel vision to try something new, something where at my age I do not have to break a hip over. That is why I created this magazine.
