This morning I woke beside my husband and my two precious fur babies, all cuddled in tight. I made the trek downstairs, where my phone now sleeps because it is muy importante to shut down, shut off, and let it lie (lesson learned after years of not knowing just how much anxiety those devices yield). I had missed a text from a friend, Giador fan and representative, Katie Anthony. I will spare you all the details but it was the brilliant words of a self made (but really we all know its really a God-made) millionaire man, Art Williams. Titled “do it”, I listened as he emphatically shared his passion for what got him and still keeps him at the top
1. Get excited
2. Become a dreamer, AGAIN!
3. You have to have a product that people want to buy
4. You have to know how to market that product.
5. STAND FOR SOMETHING- Moral and ethical unbreakable exceptional standard
6. Find your own unique offering, what sets you apart.
“They aint nobody ever designed a test or will design a test that can measure the heart of a man or woman. The things that are unique to winning in business in America today aren’t about IQ tests, it’s about a college degree on a piece of paper, whether you’re born rich or born poor, the key to winning is what’s inside a person; its your integrity, its your people abilities, your character and heart. There’s nothing you can’t do in America if you want to bad enough.”
WOAH……..(view whole speech here http://youtu.be/7R9c0RAz678
I can’t tell you how proud we are, that at the end of the day, we were founded and are unwavering on these very points and because of that a month ago Giador was able to put on her big girl panties and take a giant step forward and into her very first OWNED space and the very last place she will ever call “home”. After many changes in Edgehill Village, like much of Nashville, being bought up and “changed to fit the new Nashville”, we were forced to make a move… Isn’t it funny how God shows up in those situations? What seemed like a sad forced decision to move, actually changed our perspective from paying someone else’s mortgage to paying our own AND took us to the only place that felt right for who and what we are, the ever quaint city of Berry Hill. Sooooo, we stretched and worried and planned and prayed. We sweat, we bled, ripped out floors, tore down walls, dealt with less than upright builders, cried….ALOT…gutted through and here I am…. just over a month since we got the key (not finished but close enough), writing to you from my brand new office and occasionally looking out the window on our sweet little dogwood place. WE DID IT!!!!! Thanks to my husband and partner in life……he got us here and kept me going when it felt harder than it should and reminded me there was nothing we couldn’t do if we wanted it bad enough!
We have plenty of parking spaces, pull right up and choose a spot. We have warmth and kindness and a space that we can continue offering our exceptional service. We cannot wait for each and every one of you to come bless Giador’s forever home, 2815 Dogwood Place Nashville, TN 37204. Open house coming soon, but til then….heres a peek. Thank you thank you for being a part of our journey…you are all a very special and unique part of ours! Art has it figured out and somehow, by the grace of an incredible God and being raised right by street smart parents…..WE DO TOO!!!!
