Achieving The Dream


In Message #821, I pointed out that there are plenty of differences in terms of where ETR readers live, what they do, how they vote, and how much they spend — but there is one characteristic they all share: They want more out of life. Mike Garvey, an ETR reader just like you, is well on his way to achieving that dream. Mike is a cop, a husband, and a father. (He and his wife are expecting their second child this spring.)
He is also a small-business owner and the newest recipient of the New York State Small Business Development Center’s Entrepreneur of the Year award — and he claims that he couldn’t have done it without ETR. In today’s guest essay, Denise Ford, AWAI’s Student Services Director, tells Mike’s story. I hope you find it helpful in achieving your own ambitions. MMF

His advice, in our opinion, continues to get better and better with every essay, particularly in the controversial ones we have shared today.
