Those of you who know me personally know a great deal concerning what has happened over the past two years, but not all and as for the rest of my readers, I will attempt to bring you all up to speed.
At the beginning of July 2009, my beautiful wife of 11 years, Gidget, who had suffered with kidney disease most of her young life, took a turn for the worse. We were informed that she would be on dialysis beginning in June of that year and remain on it until she received a kidney transplant at some undetermined point in the future.
At that time, since my Gidget required round the clock care and refused to leave our home to be in a nursing home, I was forced to virtually shut down all operations of Lakeside Interiors in order to personally care for her.
To make a very long and unhappy story short, my Gidget lost her battle last May of 2011 and my world ended.
A month and a half later, my best friend, Terry Dunster, who we had lived with and cared for, for years, died as well.
Through some oversights and legal wranglings, the estate, managed to end up with everything that we had worked so hard to establish, our home, my place of business, everything.
By the time all this had transpired, I had nothing left, so I moved to Kitchener to spend time with my son Jason and his wife to be Carrie-Lynn, working at starting over in that area and trying to re-invent myself.
During that time, I met a beautiful girl, my Rayshelle, and was in the process of re-establishing my company in Barrie to be near her when I started to go blind from cataracts.
The type I have is a fast moving type and I was told that it would be a year before I could get the required surgery in the north of Ontario so we were forced to part and I returned to Windsor to get the surgery since wait times are drastically reduced here.(my surgery here is scheduled for the beginning of July).
Exactly 2 days after arriving back in Windsor, I had a "significant heart attack" and following two surgeries for that, I'm back.......but I still can't see much yet until July 9.
So to make a long story short, I'm back, I'm here in Windsor, and I'm busy building Lakeside Interiors to be everything I set out to make it before all this started!
Ok, now to get to the corner and the turning of it!
A few days ago, I was lucky enough to find the teachings of Marcus Sheridan of TheSalesLion.com and I ordered his free E-book.
This is, without a doubt, the most comprehensive guide to turn your business around that has been written to date!
You will not believe the change it will make in your life, I can't believe the simple principles that Marcus teaches that can completely change the way you do business if you just take the time to read them!
I can't say enough about Marcus' free E-book and the change it can make in your life, if you own a business or you're self employed or you work for a company......this book will help you, just read it, it"s free!
This guy is a genius! Not because he's saying anything different, but because he can explain what he's saying so that anyone can understand it!
I've embraced the principles that Marcus teaches and I'm beginning to implement them as quickly as I can, one thing at a time.
You'll notice changes in the blog such as a totally new look, a bunch of new pages being added to the site, this blog will now be coming out with new content every Sunday and Wednesday, as well, there is now a newsletter that will be emailed out to customers and subscribers every Sunday and articles will be written by guest authors as well as by me.
Those are just a small sample of what's coming, if you'd like to know more about what to expect from Lakeside over this summer......READ MARCUS' BOOK!!!
