Whatever your passion is, do it. As a little kid, I wanted to be two things— I wanted to be a cop, and I wanted to drive a truck. Well, after I left the Air Force, I worked for the sheriff’s department until 2001, and then started driving a truck.
My parents, my grandparents, my great grandparents all made me a better person. They taught me respect, honesty, truth. Self-worth, and putting God first. I’m straight forward. I don’t play games. I treat you the way that I want to be treated. I respect you. I’ve tried to instill that with my 3 boys. They’re 21, 19, and 16. I always tell them ‘follow you dream’. You can have a good job, but if you’re not satisfied doing that job, you’re wasting time. If you don’t do what your heart desires, you’ve pretty much wasted your life.
