I am a descendant of people who worked very hard. I owe everything to the sacrifices of these women and men.
On the Meyer side, my grandfather and great grandfather were laborers in steel mills. Difficult and dangerous work.
Although I spent most of my career in the white collar world, I am glad I had the opportunity to do manual labor for a number of years. I learned valuable lessons about life and people while there was dirt under my fingernails.
