I love number 21 and 32… we have common restaurant driven wealth aspirations!

Let’s get to 100!

45) I want to walk into my own building and have my workers greet me and update me on business.

I love 29 and 36.

46) Because I want to be creative. My parents have always teached me to never rest on laurels and always be dynamic.
47) Because I’ve always want this!

Great idea!! Let’s continue this until 100!

48) I want to improve my management skills
49) I want to understand how a company works
50) I want to motivate a team and keep them focus in a few goals

51) I want to construct a triennial plan that works!
52) I want to be effective and flexible (no bureaucratic mess)
53) I want to improve myself everyday
54) I want to learn everyday

I thought of more this morning 😉
55) I want to organize a golf tournament with my company
56) I want to pay for a “children’s wish” alone (this is about 10K)
57) I want hockey tickets half price


And the main reason would be:
0) I do what I do because I love God and all things are for His Glory and only His Glory.
So …whatever you want to do will succeed. This is a promise. Believe it!
Nihil sine Deo(Nothing without God!)

I want to be able to fire people on a whim. (I’m kidding!).

I love this post. #6 is my gave.

“I want my TFB logo on my company car” – awesome. I would love to be driving around someday and see the TFB logo on a vehicle!

huhh # 1? please explain why wearing a piercing on my eyebrows is your first one 😉

I don’t know why this one came first in my mind! I’ve always wanted to have a piercing but working in the financial industry always forced me to wait…
