It took getting fired for me to recognize I was born to be an entrepreneur.

It took the tax authorities seizing my restaurant and auctioning it off for the unpaid taxes for me discover my true purpose in life.

It took getting shot and left for dead for me to truly live life.

Funny how the universe has a way of disrupting our best-laid plans.

    Hi Randy, now you said this yourself, there are thousands of sports superstars out there, they just never knew it,,
    so imagine how many inspiring stories are out there.. tricky to get this rolling.. but there is a fault line in this method of communication.. ie there is disconnect.. so maybe If someone tells a valid and meaningful story, you could part relate to it in the next blog to create some continuity,, hope this helps, keep on trucking, graham uk

    A fearful story, when I was 17, Me and Alan set off to France on our bicycles, riding down to catch the ferry in portsmouth to france…. so on the way we ended upon the wrong road, in america you would call it a highway, Alan was hit by a car, I saw him get tossed in the air and his for blood splatterd on the road,,, alot of this was my fault..
    Alan was dead, she (mother) sat in a cold bath for three days, …When ever I feel sad or low.. Alan will always say to me .. YOUR LIFE HAS TO COUNT… .. Never STOP Randy. Graham UK

    It took a worldwide coronavirus pandemic for me to discover how generous and creative some people are, how much I need and appreciate my husband, hugs, my family, friends, my health, freedoms and my ability to travel.
