In 3 hours ill be on a bus heading to Wilson Logistics in Springfield, MO.. I arrived in Texas back in 1999... 20 years ago this year and spent 14 Years of that in security at the same job and two months ago i said enough is enough and I need a change.. a new career.

I sit here and reflect on what sacrifices ive had to endure in the last 20 years and more recently four years ago when I divorced, TX CP or shall I say the inability to support my kids financially while staying a float and more importantly watching my relationship from kids slowly disappear and being told to just disappear as I seem to be in and out (due to long hours and staying a float) Ive finally come to terms but by far this SACRIFICE is the biggest ive ever and will ever make to walk away to maintain their standard of living at all cost..

Im sharing this in response to something Brett directed at me in another post.. NO EXCUSES and TO FIND THAT FIRE THAT DRIVES YOU TO SUCCEED..

This is my fire to make the leap.. WHAT DRIVES YOU???
