In my new perpetual search of amazing people to talk to, I took off today and landed in Casa Grande, AZ. And since I enjoy working out at LA Fitness, I sauntered in anticipating to do some swimming and some heated pool relaxed exercises. Then also to continue my mission to – Meet People, Make Friends and See if I can Help Make a Difference in People’s Lives.
I was totally relaxed with the bottoms of my feet being massaged by the jets of the heated pool jacuzzi. That’s when I met Steve.
He seemed like a happy man when I joked that he should be careful or he might fall into the heated pool. We laughed and he told me that he had been with the Poolman company for a little over 4 months. And what he liked the most about his job was – “Communication.” Giving the best of customer service in dealing with people was at the forefront of Steve’s mind.
The part that he didn’t like was the “Elements.” He admitted not being very fond of the heat that is present for usually 5 months of the year in desert Arizona.
Speaking casually, Steve said that he has lived in Casa Grande for 18 years. He’s married and has four kids.
If he ruled the world, even if it were only for one day, Steve would firmly advocate that common courtesy would rule the day. He would demand an all out peace if he were ruler of the world. And maybe he would also require that everyone should ride a Harley Davidson motorcycle at least once during the day.
Steve would really like to have more time, less stress along with more money. With more money, he would utilize his talents as a lay youth pastor more often. He looked off to the distance as he considered the dream-like anticipation of helping youth evolve into conscientious upstanding adults.
Also, of course, Steve would like to have more time to spend with his wife and kids. And he was truly open to talk with successful mentors who could show him how he could make more money without devoting a lot of extra time to the job or business. He was excited about ‘living the dream’ that could come to him … just by turning his spending into earning.
