I still have just about a 100 people that work for me and they all drive better cars, own bigger houses and have the same benefits as I do. We have so far put 22 of there children through collage. I never believed that just because the company was in my name that it meant I had to make the workers have less than I. Oh and I do not draw any money from the company since my retirement.
Now back to reshaping how the country looks.
It sounds like you are in great shape for whatever comes. I wish I could say I'm debt free at 52. I heard some where once that money was like manure - it does no one any good unless it's spread around. From what you say, it's clear you've been spreading your money and influence around for the good of your employees and their families. That's how it's supposed to work. If we can return the government to the original intent a whole lot more of us would be able to join you in your efforts. I would like to recommend a book to you - "Seven Events that Made America, America." It very clearly shows how and when the country got off the Constitutional path. it's very thought provoking. I think you'd find it interesting.
I'm sure I'll be talking with you again soon, I truly enjoy our conversations. Take care, Lisa
