Thank you for being here! I hope you enjoy my stories. As an entrepreneur in a family of many entrepreneurs this very thought has gone through my mind. So I thought why not write about it!
I’d love to hear your feed back!
Could it be that these personality traits and skills are hereditary or do we simply learn them from the people we grow up around? To be honest I am sure there must be a scientific answer to this, in which I do not have, however a fun thought and story to write about and share!
As most of you know I am first a Mother of two amazing little gifts, Gabriel, who is 5 and Elijah, who is 1. My whole universe revolves around these two angels. Secondly, I am a wife, to my amazing husband, and best friend, Justin Micheal. In order to stay home with my babies, I decided to work from home. Thank God for the direct selling industry, and the amazing Avon opportunity! My Avon business has afforded the opportunity to create a beautiful, and successful family business, that we all enjoy. Whats more, I am available to my family always, what a blessing that is.
I couldn’t help but think…… Is this in my blood? LOL
My father, whom which if you have ever met him or spoke with, is as fast paced and mathematical as me. We are sometimes hard to follow, we move and talk fast. Probably because things are flying through our minds so fast. I am most certainly my fathers daughter. Everyone calls him “Big Frank” he is an owner/operator of a Motorcycle shop.
My entire life I can remember my father building from scratch, repairing, selling, trading etc.. different motorcycles. Mainly, Harley Davidson’s. He calls his bike, “Old Blue,” he probably doesn’t realize but “Old Blue” has been his best friend and in his life the longest. I think it makes him feel free, like my horses do for me. He is so talented, his custom motorcycles have one first place at different bike shows! Pretty awesome guy!
The reason I share this is because I have so many of my fathers traits, hes a net-worker naturally, very driven, (barely sleeps haha), loves a start up, and fully manages his entire business from his shop located right where I grew up.
My Grandfather owned a restaurant supply business, everyone knows him in our area. He created and nurtured a successful family business in which his eldest son, took over in time. Beyond this generation, I am somewhat unaware as they came from Italy. There is the stallion himself below, John Fiaschetti, “Johnny.”
On my mothers side, my grandmother, Mary, owned her very own beauty shop. Mind you in a time when women rarely worked outside of the home, as they stayed home with their children more in that time, especially in the area she grew up in. Not only did she work, she owned her own beauty business. I like to believe she would be very proud of me and my beauty business today, I never met her. I have however, seen photos, what a beauty.
My grand mothers father, Pearl, was a farmer, that is how he made his living!
Each of my family members built their own business and was self employed! Isn’t that something!
When I was in Middle School I won, the “Entrepreneurial Award” for contacting Otis Spunkmeyer to set up a cookie business for the students in our school. Many kids started helping our little student business!
Who knows, maybe it is within us! I cannot wait to see what my children do someday!
