I wanted to share an article before Thanksgiving that really spoke to me and the hearts of many. I have been looking for days and felt when the right one came along, I would know it. This is that piece. No disrespect to the author, I moved things around and broke up paragraphs into smaller bites. They were so inspiring they almost jumped off the page.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. So grateful to have this platform and a wonderful community of fellow travelers on this path to share the journey.
"This Thanksgiving season, it might seem there’s less to be thankful for. One out of eleven of Americans is out of work. Many pundits say the American dream is dead and see further decline of the West, particularly the US."
"When it's darkest men see the stars.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
"this decade may well be our country’s finest hour
the beginning of an economic revolution as important as the scientific revolution in the 16th century and the industrial revolution in the 18th century.
**This entrepreneurial revolution will permanently reshape business as we know it
**More importantly, change the quality of life for all who come after us."
**It’s possible we’ll look back to this decade as the beginning of our own revolution.
**It may even be the dawn of a new era for a new American economy built on entrepreneurship and innovation.
****Our children will look back on and marvel that when it was the darkest, we saw the stars.
