Ameer El-issa

We really enjoyed listening to Ameer El-Issa speak about the family businesses and their passion behind it. We always buy when we can from family business because of the hospitality shown and friendly atmosphere. This has always been important and even more so in Covid times when many people’s interactions are limited.

Also interesting listening to your child hood memories Mark.

5 things

My wife and I were talking prior to listening to this about falling back in love with our next project and taking pride to make it happen. We fought to get where we are after so many failures. We have worked hard to get where we are and this weekend we are off to play for a well earned break.
I encourage everyone to go beyond where you feel safe and make it your passion and go beyond what you think you are capable of. If you apply your passion to your goals, do the research and don’t guess about anything you will succeed if you take pride in what you are doing.

Thanks Mark. Your podcast helps our motivation.
