Gail and I were ready to jump into the Hope Movement with both feet September 2016. An online webinar was in place, support resources stood ready for implementation, a couple of podcast interviews had been published. But within a matter of a few short weeks, Gail turns ill and my beautiful wife passed to her eternal reward a few months later. Needless to say, our involvement in the Hope Movement went on hold and stayed on hold until around June 2018. After getting all the cobwebs removed and spending some time healing from my loss I revisited the Hope Movement. It felt like I started from scratch, though I was grateful foundational items had been laid months previous. I’m now back in the saddle.
But now my life had and has changed significantly, and I was fully mobile, and I asked myself the question, “Do you now want to go back to the traditional way of building business?” It did not take me long to decide. If I would have said yes, I felt that would have been a decision to leave a lot of people behind. And though there are those who can immediately join our life-saving movement without a second thought, the series of events in which I found myself had forced me to design a business management system that accommodates the most vulnerable people in a modern society, I was one of those vulnerable people who was subject to circumstances out of my control spending years as a caregiver to the greatest person I knew. Those circumstances constrained me to implement high-tech modalities and go to work for people who were in similar predicaments and allow them to participate when their circumstances were perhaps dictating something different.
I had been a temporary member of a group of people for many years who were at least in part like the malnourished children of the world, easily forgotten; easily swallowed up by circumstances—and I decided they deserve my best. So, I said, “No.” to the question I asked myself. And I remain at the service of those who join this team. And have mobilized the HQG system on their behalf.
