My coming of age years spanned from about 1985 till 1995. Growing up in my house during that time meant that you went to work with dad, unpaid of course. Hanging drywall with dad after school and on the weekends was a rite of passage for me and my three brothers.
My dad is a man’s man. Big. Strong. Caring. An easy disposition. I love my dad! Of all the things he ever gave me, a strong work ethic and being a positive role model are the two things that have benefited me most in my life. But there is one thing my parents didn’t teach me about that I wish they would have: money.
