Dealing With Family Finances
My crew has been hanging out in suburban Houston, Texas, this past week.
While we were here, we bumped into a guy washing RVs. He had the right equipment, a hard-working crew, and a go-to attitude. Considering the absolutely appalling condition of the Warrior, it was a no-brainer – he got our business.
While he and his crew transformed the Warrior into something that actually looked good, we learned a bit about the owner of this little enterprise, called Rose Touch Mobile Detailing.
Laren Rose was laid off last February from his job as a police officer. Like a lot of people these days, he found himself wondering what to do next. While scraping up coins under the sofa cushions and otherwise making his family finances work somehow, he came up with a great idea.
There are so many expensive RVs in those upscale RV parks. Many of their owners have more cash than the rest of us, having sold out their old homes just before the real estate crash. And their age makes keeping their rigs as clean as they prefer rather difficult. The gray-hair set is a close community out here, and most of these folks were raised to keep their things looking good.
Enter Mr Rose. These days he has a custom van covered in professional advertising. And a fast crew who just get the job done.
Many of us are facing a situation similar to Mr R0se. We find ourselves at an involuntary crossroads in our life. Perhaps fate is sending you a signal? Maybe this is your big chance to stop working and start living?
Sure, Mr Rose is working – hard. But his work is for himself – his own business. He now controls his hours, and controls when he takes a quick break to spend time with the family. There is a direct and visible connection between the sweat of his brow and the well-being of his family.
The economy just looks worse every day. And I believe it will get worse, too, if that’s possible. But it doesn’t have to get worse for you. Join the new economy. Join those of us for whom the future is a bright shining star.
Life’s too short to live in fear of what’s coming. So don’t.
Mr Rose sure isn’t. He is a classic entrepreneur. You can be too.
Do you have ideas for a new business or way to fund your family lifestyle? Share them with us (if you don’t mind). Opportunities surround us. We just aren’t trained how to look for them. Your ideas and thoughts can help us all to bolster our family finances.
I look forward to hearing from you.
All the best,
P.S.: If you happen to be in the South Houston area and your vehicle in need of a good wash, you can reach Mr Rose at (713) 878-2596.
