A dedication to my daughters

As you may well know, my twin 11 yr old daughters are everything to me.

They were brought into this world at a whopping 3 pounds each, and have turned into incredible young ladies with the world in their hands.  In honor of my 10 year anniversary in business, I thought it only fair to dedicate today’s article to them!  Without them, I may have never taken the plunge to start my own business.

I did NOT want to be that dad that hated what he did for a living… so I quit my sales job and started my own business. 

Best thing I ever did for myself… and for them.

Below these pictures of my angels are 2 articles you will enjoy.

My daughters... my world

My daughters... my world

The day those 2 came into my life was the greatest day I can ever remember.

Katrina and Hailey were born 2 months premature and weighed in at 3pds each.

Yet, they carried the power of the universe in those tiny little hands. The first time I held one I will never forget (look at your hands when I talk about this to get the full impression) – their entire hands wrapped around my middle fingertip – their entire hand wrapped around my first knuckle.

So small, yet so many miracles at work within them.

They are now almost 12 years old and you would never know they were born so small or frail.

The power of love, nutrition and all the TLC possible brought them from where they were all bundled up in their incubators at the hospital to where they are today – terrorizing the cats, the neighbors kids and the local supply of purple balloons (one of their favorites).

Pretty well through most of this time I was also building my own small business and I quickly learned how many similarities there are to raising kids as there are to raising a business. You have to learn to crawl before walking, and walking before running.

There are no shortcuts (every once in a while you do hear of someone that broke the “rules” but it is more common than not to have to follow the rules.

Being twins, they also have some unique qualities and situations that remind me of marketing my business. Making my business different than others is very important to me and I am always working on new ways to get better at it.

What struck me most though was how powerful we truly are when we look to a higher power for help. Those tiny little 3 pound babies were put on this earth for a reason (and neither of us have twins in the family, so it was a complete surprise).

They are as strong as any other 11 year old yet they started out at a serious disadvantage.

When you look to a higher power for help – you will receive what you ask for. As long as you trust and believe that it will come. When those 2 were born – all I asked for was health.

…As long as they were healthy – I was happy.

And I got what I asked for because I KNEW deep inside that they were healthy – and would continue to be so.

With my business, I have asked for help numerous times. Many times I got what I asked for. Other times I didn’t. When I look back on why some things didn’t happen as I had asked for – it was mainly because I was not trusting that it would happen. Those times when I knew deep to the core that it would happen – it did.

My advice to you is – when you ask for help – believe they will help and trust that it will come in due time. But, do not sit back and wait for it. Go out and actively go in search of your dreams as well.

It gives the universe many more outlets to help you with when you are already helping yourself.

 

NO MORE JAY ABRAHAM!

(this is an article I sent to Jay Abraham almost 10 years ago – one which he published in his newsletter at the time…. thought you’d get a kick out of it.

“No More Jay Abraham!”

as stated by Hailey White (2 years old)

December 2002 in LA was one of the defining moments in my life.  Over the period of 3 information packed days my thoughts on business and success dramatically.  When I got home I looked at the thousands of pages of information I had to read, 80 hours + in audio tapes to listen to…my year was filling up!

So… every chance I had to listen to the tapes I did.

Until last week…

I have twin 2 year old girls and they were on the fast track to be the youngest Jay Abraham Protégés ever !  They listened to the tapes every time they were in the car with me… and for the most part they seemed to quite enjoy it!

I thought I was a genius… raising marketing masterminds from birth!  By the time they were 12 years old I would be able to retire on their consulting contracts.  This was sounding great.

My dreams were dashed the other day when I was putting in another tape while the girls were in the car.   As the tape started there was a huge outburst from the back …. “NO more Jay Abraham!”  Hailey screamed.  I thought she was kidding, I mean how could she be getting tired of here education already?

Well, sorry to say… they no longer let me play the Jay Abraham tapes when they are in the car.  I get the same, very rude, outburst whenever I try them on the tapes.

My bubble has temporarily burst for the youngest protégés ever.

I am going to try again when they turn 3.

Thanks again Jay,  the training is excellent !

  1. Hi Troy,

    Love the collage of your girls. They are beautiful! I was laughing reading the no more Jay Abraham article. I am also raising 2 little marketing geniuses to be although I try to mix it up a little, Jay Abraham ,Chet Holmes,, Dan Kennedy and Bill Glazer and lots of Anthony Robbins.

    My dad started me in 3rd grade with personal development books and then sales books when I started my own business selling stationary in 3rd grade. He was a Jay Abraham protege too so I have all the tapes. So I guess it is in my blood so don’t give up! Lol!

  2. I have had a similar mutiny! 🙂

  3. Wonderful, tender piece, Troy. As a proud dad of 3, I have a soft spot for writings like this. You should pat yourself on the back for raising such beautiful girls and being the businessman you wanted to be.

  4. Great article Troy! Thanks so much for sharing the story of you daughters. Deeply touching.

  5. Thanks Lawrence. We shoudl all be sharing more of our personal sides…it feels great to write about them! Great to hear from you. Troy
