He Never Gave Up

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Fort McMurray

In 1955 Harland Sanders was 65 years old and virtually broke.  Fortunately, he possessed two things:  a car, and a recipe for chicken.  He took his recipe on the road to sell to restaurants, and the rest, as they say, is history.

 

Harland "Colonel" Sanders was the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken, and now KFC restaurants serve more than 12 million customers every day in 109 countries and territories around the world.  Colonel Sanders is proof that it's never too late to decide to never give up.

 

Let's celebrate that it's never too late!

He is certainly a role model for the senior citizen.  I think that this idea of "retirement" when yhou hit 65 is not good.  I'm nearing that now and feel like I'm finally getting life figured out.  Why quit?

Patrick that's a great story. It's nice to be reminded when things are not going the best that if we get back to our plan, have a focus, and execute the plan, the potential is unlimited.
