There are so many things to reflect upon at this time of the year for which we should be thankful. Especially, when we think about the pioneers and leaders that blazed the trails before us, such as DuBois, King, Malcolm, Vivian, Bethune, Mandela, Tubman, Parks, and many, many more that I would not attempt to name here, we would not have the opportunities in business that we have, let alone being able to exercise and enjoy our basic rights and freedoms as human beings.

Also, as we think about the predecessors in our own families, they may not have had famous names, but they each contributed in their own way to the myriad of opportunities that are open to us today to succeed and create generational wealth. The reason this is important to me is because my parents soon will celebrate another wedding anniversary. They have been married over 30 years. Although they may not have taught me how to be a businessman per se, they did teach me how to be a real man. And that will carry me a lot further in business than just knowing marketing, finance, purchasing, etc.

So, enjoy your turkey day, don’t get too stuffed, and don’t forget to thank God for the people he placed on earth to open the doors that have allowed the rest of us to succeed.

Thanks Mom and Dad!
