What is Your Life?

I remember going outside on a foggy afternoon, way back when I was 9 or so, to see what it felt like to be in ‘heaven’.

My understanding of life was limited, as is any 9 year old’s perspective. But in some ways, it is more pure than when we become adults.

Some of the happiest memories of my life are from when I was a young boy.

The summers of fun playing baseball, stick ball, pool parties, sleep overs, birthday parties.

That was the life.

That is life.

What is your life? When you break it down, it’s nothing more than a collection of memories and experiences. This moment, this minute, this is what you’ve got.

Life can be as magical as you want it to be.

The secret is in being grateful each and every day. An attitude of gratitude brings more and more to be grateful for.

But stop waiting for ‘life’. It’s right here, right now, enjoy it.

I thought that since this was on my mind, it was somehow on your mind too. Start your week off right.

The First Business Experience of My Life

When I was 21 months old (the same age as Munchie), my mom snapped a photo of me sitting in overalls with a barbell loaded up on my lap.

It was one of those old sand filled weight sets that my dad used to use.

While I do have quite the memory do to my mallet drills:), you may be wondering how I remember something from when I was 21 months old.

I don’t.  But I know because she gave me the picture of this memory when I turned 30 and it sits in the office at Newell Strength.  Call it what you will but I call it a calling.

Life took its first turn down the entrepreneurial road for me when I was 11.  My brothers and I started Newell Bros. Lawn Cutting.

I remember going to houses with the push mower loaded in the back of my parents minivan.  We would unload and we would cut away.  And I am talking some yards that were a couple of acres, so little young me would be out there for 3 hours plus pushing away.

Then the next spring, D-Wizzle (my pops) bought us an old, used riding mower.  To me, it was pure bliss.

That summer I got my account up to 5 lawns.

Then the summer after I had 8 and then 11.

My main competition was a tough little bastard, whom happens to own a multi-million dollar construction company now, that pushed me and pushed me.

I couldn’t keep up with his equipment but I was not going to be outworked.

Eventually, basketball took over my life but lawncare and I had a good run.  When I went to start Newell Strength, it came down to starting a landscaping company or NS and I was leaning more towards the lawn company!

Lawn care will always hold a special spot in my heart and now you know why I look forward to the weekend cutting of the lawn with Munchie and ‘Mike the Mower’.

Are you paying attention the signs in your life?  What path did life drop you off on and are you moving forward?
