I made a choice to have freedom from the corporate world and that decision probably saved my life. The reason I say probably is because I can’t say for sure what my fate would have been that tragic day- only god knows that.I do know one thing. I’m glad to be alive! My decision to walk away from my dead-end office job is probably one of the best decisions of my life. Everything in my life is going great. I live a happy, productive life. I have a wonderful, supportive, loving, wife and two beautiful, intelligent, daughters. I’ve been able to make my dream of becoming an entrepreneur come true due to my work ethic and dedication to succeed. I have to admit I’m proud of myself. But I also realize there is still much more to do.In this book I share how I managed to avoid death a few times in my life. Truth be told, I’ve had a few life and death experiences in my lifetime. All of those experiences have made me appreciate life more than most. It’s why I live by the motto “Live, Love, Laugh and Make Money” I made that up myself. I choose to live a life full of positive energy and surrounded by positive people. I don’t allow anyone that lives in constant negativity to get too close to me. I don’t care if it’s a friend or family member. I will separate myself from that negative energy. That’s because I truly believe that positive energy produces positive results while negative energy produces negative results.Did you notice that “making money” is the last phrase in my motto? That’s because I love making money but it’s not the most important thing in my life. Yes, having a successful business that supports a family is important. But I believe enjoying life is more important. Being around the people you love and creating memories with loved ones that will last a life time is crucial because in the end, when our time is up, we will not be able to take our money with us- just our memories.Not only did I have my own brushes with death I also witnessed a few. I was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. I lived there until the age of nineteen. At that age my family and I had lived in the Bronx for over nineteen years. When it became too dangerous to continue living in my neighborhood my family and I decided to move to the suburbs of New Jersey. We have been living here now for the past twenty-five years. I truly believe our decision to leave the Bronx, New York probably saved my life.This is my personal story about how I survived a few life and death experiences. How I witnessed many terrible, horrific, things living in the Bronx, New York. How I escaped my environment for a better life. How quitting a job probably saved my life. And how I became an entrepreneur who now enjoys freedom the corporate world. I control my own destiny and I wouldn’t have it any other way!I hope everyone that reads this book finds it be very motivational and inspirational. I share my story for many reasons but that truly is the main reason why I wrote this book – to inspire and motivate. I hope everyone enjoys it.
