We always hear those rags to riches stories and they’re awesome because many of us feel as though we can relate. Sort of an, “If he did it… I can do it.” And that’s really the power that lies within our stories. The power to affect. (Or is it effect??? Ughhhh I never get that right.) Anyway! I have a pretty cool rags to riches story that I’d like to share today. The title of the blog is a play on words and you’ll see why in a second. When I was 18, I worked at a golf club as a dishwasher--maybe you see where I’m going now with the title 😉
I made like seven bucks an hour and would walk to work because I didn’t have a car or a license. Tonight was pretty cool because I got paid one thousand dollars to speak to a great group of people on dreaming and taking dream leaps. I spoke about leaving my full-time job and driving across the country to pursue dreams. I spoke about looking within yourself to find the things you should be doing to live a great life. I spoke about a whole bunch of interesting things at the same golf club that I once worked in as dishwasher making seven dollars an hour. Tonight I made thirty-three dollars per minute.
