Own The Storefront

We are responsible for our success in life no matter how much others may seem responsible, we are the ones it relies upon. I say “Own the storefront” in a tongue in cheek metaphor. Our lives and success are the store front … mind them! Whatever endeavor you seek to do, don’t forget you own the storefront.

#24 Eliseo and the Way of the Rooster

It was back in 1994 but I remember it me it was yesterday. Working at Pizza Hut late at night with a cook named Eliseo, we learned much about each other including music and culture. We didn’t even have to try because it was mutual respect. Along with truth, there’s some humor in this one (even in the title) I hope you find and enjoy it :)
