Everyday you do what you’ve got to do, working towards the realization of your dream. Then, one day, you find yourself sitting in Sitges, Spain sipping a mojito that is handmixed in your presence by the president of Bacardi, a direct descendant of this entrepreneur who began it all…and you realize the dream has come true.
Sitges is a beautiful city on the Mediterranean Sea. The water is a blue that with each wave washes a bubbling joy and a smooth peace into you.
Sitting here, lounging under a hot Spanish sun, my mind heard the voice that told me along the way, doing what I love with no support ftom family, taking the risk of leaving down my American life and moving alone to Europe, living my life and working my business, everything has aligned.
Sometimes you will be the only one who has faith in you. Persist you must. Let your faith in your magnificent vision propel you to your destination of doing work you loves that serves and uplifts others, brings you profit, makes it possible to be charitable to others and allows you to see the world and meet its people at your leisure.
One day, in the midst of an ordinary day, you will sit back and sip, realizing your magnificent dream is reality.
