Today, we would like to take time and thank the many Mentors we have in our lives. Jay Nunez, our founder and main contributor will share the most influential Mentors of his life. Comment and tag your Mentors to give them a thank you today for all that they have taught you. Don’t forget to follow us like and share.
First, I would like to thank my father Jay Nunez Sr.. This man has shown me hard work and how to be an early bird. My father would wake me up bright and early on the weekends and school vacation to go work with him as a carpenter apprentice. First, he had me carry the tool box and passing him tools and as I got older he would give me more responsibility and my confidence grew.
Then I have my older brother Luis R. my brother and I share a special gene in our DNA sequence. That gene we share is the entrepreneur gene. Over the years I saw my brother start many ventures in the entertainment industry, sports and community development. Like all of us entrepreneurs know, 9 out of 10 businesses fail. So people like my brother and I pick ourselves up and keep moving forward with another crazy idea.
Third on this list is a man named Jose A. who I met back in 2006 when one of my businesses went belly up. Jose gave me a chance to work at one of the biggest financial firms in New York City. He saw something in me and helped move me up the ranks quickly. In three short years, with his guidance and support I went from an entry-level position to a supervisory one in my department.
Second to last on this list is Mr. Elvin B with his famous quote “Give out a helping hand and hope that one day if your kids are in the same situation someone will help them.” We spent hours in his office talking about many parts of life and I appreciate the time he spent with me today on this day.
Last but not least we have a three-way tie. My wife Ivy and two boys Liam and Noah. They are my Happy Song. Everyday is a blessing to have them in my life. With them I learn the many layers of love and happiness. Thanks everyone for everything you’ve taught me.
Side note today is also.
Happy Birthday Edgar Allan Poe
“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. “
