My Dad gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.
That kind of unconditional belief created a sense of safety and security that allowed me to believe I could achieve whatever I put my mind to.
It’s been 5 years since he passed and I miss him every day.
Thanks Dad, and Happy Father’s Day everyone.
May you be courageous and fearless in your leadership!
