"...We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness..." The Preamble to the Declaration of Independence is familiar to many citizens of the United States and though it will oft be repeated this weekend, there are far too many individuals not achieving the spirit of this momentous document. "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" is definitely a worthy goal: But how can you or I have a good life, if our life is literally consumed with work? Our days, weeks and oftentimes our self-esteem is tied into how much, where and when we work for someone else; How can we have liberty if we can only come and go as our employer dictates? We have to ask permission to pick up our sick child; we have to ask permission to go to lunch; we have to ask permission to take a break; How can we achieve the pursuit of happiness when all of our pursuits result in the happiness of our employer? I am here to enlist recruits for the revolution of the entrepreneur!
If I could share one thing with you about Rod Moyer, it would be that he loves his beautiful baby daughter, LAYLA! He realized in December 2006 what he wanted to be when he grew up. Some people want to be a doctor, a lawyer, an engineer, or a teacher. Rod realized that he wanted to be a DAD. Becoming a Professional Father is his true life passion.
