I love my Job!
This past weekend I went to San Antonio Texas to spend time with our friends Trent and Courtney Kimball. They own Texas Armoring Company (TAC). Trent is the CEO and he gave a whole group of us a tour of the manufacturing plant (they armor cars for wealthy business people all over the world).
It was so much fun as he showed us around and told stories of some of his clients he has helped. He then did a demonstration of how their product protects lives. He had an employee shoot several rounds of an AK47 into a windshield (if you want to watch a video of it you can go here
As I was thinking about my weekend I started to see some similarities to Trent & myself. We both are CEO’s of cool companies. We both love what we do and have a lot of enthusiasm about it. We are good at surrounding ourselves with great people ( I have 4 of my family working with me). I then thought about a big difference between the two of us. I don’t talk about Idealshape like Trent talks about TAC. I realized that the reason is I’m worried about offending those around me. It seems like there’s always someone in the group that’s overweight and I feel like if I start spouting off why we have such a cool company they will think I’m preaching to them about losing weight. I don’t ever want anyone to think that.
At TAC they have a motto “Life is valuable – protect it”. We feel the same at IdealShape only we provide a different kind of protection. We believe that obesity is killing our nation and we need to do something about it. We have great stories from our clients about how they use our products to protect themselves and their families. Like Marilyn Peterson who sent her daughter off to college with a container of our shake mix. She said that at least now she felt like her daughter was getting one nutritious meal a day. Or another client who listens to our Brain Food CD’s with her 10 year old son who uses it to relax and visualize positive things for his life. Another client who’s now sleeping 7-8 hours a night (before the hypnosis for weight loss CD’s she was lucky to get 4 hours of sleep). How much better can her life be with that change? And thousands of clients who’s lives have improved because of the weight they have lost.
IdealShape is a cool company and I love being the CEO. We have an amazing team of people that I work with and we have a blast together. The best thing we do is that we make a real difference in peoples lives with our meal replacement shakes and our brain training. We love to hear success stories from our customers because you guys are the reason that we do what we do.
