A Chance to Honor
I decided to take on this venture for a few reasons. Writing and speaking are strengths I was blessed to have – I got that from my father. At first, I didn’t know how I wanted to honor him following his recent departure from this world. Golf tournaments, scholarships and donations all seemed so temporary and impersonal. I was searching for something to keep his spirit alive each and every day. More importantly, I wanted to leave a written legacy of the lessons, attitudes, thoughts, opinions, acts, and generosity that he taught to me. What better way to honor him than hopefully inspiring others, or at least making them think a little deeper or differently?
A Chance to Inspire
I’m not here to change the world. I’m not here to make anyone a millionaire overnight. I’m not here to teach you some pre-packaged “secrets of success”. What I am here for is to inspire you to take a moment and realize you are good enough, right now. To realize that regardless of social status, financial status, gender, age, religious affiliation – you can make a difference.
A Chance to Lead
Charge Up is a pay-it-forward concept. Encourage others to assist. Encourage others to find their passion. Network to build your idea. Find the good in people. Don’t be a follower. When it comes to paying it forward, be a leader.
Unlike business pursuits, there can never be enough leaders in the pursuit of giving. Make a difference. Honor somebody. Live life to the fullest.
