Part of MY STORY

Ok now this is very personal to me so please be respectful and don’t take what I’m about to say lightly. This is another part of my story.

A few months after I got married March of 1998 my Dad called me and was very emotional and said:

“Ren I just got Fired! After 20 years they fired me!”

I could hear my Mom in the background sobbing

“We are going to loose the house!”

Then my Dad said:

“Ren don’t be dumb like me. I’m 55 years old and have nothing to show for it. Who’s going to hire me at my age? You be better then me!”

I’m the oldest of 7 children and I’m the only one he called. I was shocked and something shifted in me that day!

From then on I worked so hard and eventually 8 years later had my own Real Estate and Construction Company building 100’s of homes a year in multiple states.

I had built my financial fortress for my family.

Then in March of 2008 the economy changed and I had to re-find myself!! What I did before didn’t matter. I felt so vulnerable and lost.

How can I call myself a man if I cant even provide for my own family?

The next 3 years were dark and a blur. I couldn’t sleep at night. I would have nightmares about losing my family and my self respect. Constantly I would wake up in the night thinking it was just a bad dream but it was still there.

Please God how am I going to provide for my family I would scream out!

How am I going to feed them?

Where are we going to live?

Then I started getting foreclosure letters on our home! My hope was gone.

God where are you? Why have you abandoned me? What did I do to deserve this?

 Find myself

Then one day after fighting for so long. I asked a different question. God what is it you want me to do and through a series of events it all came down to the INTERNET.

A place where someone can be themselves and share their story and make a living doing it.

Internet Traffic

My mission is: Through God I’m free to live life to the fullest and inspire others to do the same.

All the best!
