Today was a great day. I had lunch with two of my favourite people and ended up talking to them for over 3 hours! Pat and Ken, who both live in Thorhild, AB, have been supporters and friends since I first met them almost 4 years ago.
In fact, my first ever presentation to kids, that was ultimately the beginning of my career as a professional speaker, was on Sunday, September 8, 2013 at the Thorhild Sunflower Festival! Pat was instrumental in having me come talk to the kids about my Guinness World Records, introduce them to Davy and play frisbee with them!
Since then, I’ve also spend time at Sports Camp and Newbrook Hall. I have also spoken at Thorhild Central School and also set my second (the first with Davy) Guinness World Record in the field behind the school. Thorhild will always have a special place in my heart and I have these two to thank for that!
I always learn so much from both of them and as Ken is a Pastor, he really has a unique approach that I’m not used to on a daily basis. He’s a very open minded, knowledgeable, patient and empathetic man. He’s been a big help in guiding my path over the last few years.
Pat is a sweet, wonderful, passionate and dedicated lady who has not only given me opportunities but has given me belief that what I’m doing is worth it, even when I didn’t believe it myself.
It’s important to be open to having people help you and listening to what they have to say. We can’t do everything on our own and when people are willing to take time from their day and their life to spend it with you, that is a special person.
Thanks for being you Pat and Ken and being my friends and supporters!
