What kind of work keeps you occupied?
“That’s kind of a hard one to answer with the whole health problem…. when I feel good I work with my dad, and for myself I guess now at this point. We do international network marketing for a company called Morinda. It’s pretty awesome, and the products have actually helped me with a lot of my health issues. (A big reason why I didn’t get more sick sooner in life!!! Praise the Lord that He put my dad in this company!)
Earlier this year, I even had the opportunity to speak in front of the most elite people in the company from all around the globe, I had 14 different translators for it!
Being the youngest in the company can be pretty nerve wracking since they all have so much experience. But I know I have things to bring to the table that they can’t and I’m excited to see where it takes me.
Besides that, my dad and I are planning on opening a blender bowl café in my home town and if it does well, we hope to expand to several other locations.
Also, if you consider traveling work, I’d say that keeps me occupied too. I’m always on the move and learning about the world.”
Got any tips you’d like to share with your fellow students?
“Some days you will feel on top of the world, like nothing could ever go wrong, you have meetings to attend, you go to lunch with friends, hop on conference calls, walk your dog, go exercise, do school work, spend time with your family, or whatever makes your day productive, and you are so proud of yourself. Then there will be some days that it takes you 4 hours to convince yourself to get out of bed and another 3 hours to convince yourself to shower and after all of that all you want do is go back to bed. And days like that are okay too.
Don’t be hard on yourself, we don’t always have to have it together, we’re not suppose to have it together all the time. So if you need to go back to bed and take that day off and rest, and then when you can you go back to whatever it is you need to do.
No one has it all together, we are not in control so there’s no possible way we could, but God is in control, and He has it all together.
More importantly God has YOU. So it’s okay to sit and breathe.”
