Happy Fourth of July – 2017
Independence Day is about much more than picnics and fireworks with the family. Don’t get me wrong, those things are great, but for me this day is about celebrating our nation’s independence and the liberties and freedoms that have helped us thrive for 241 years. When you stop to think about this country’s history it was really financial independence and entrepreneurial freedom that the Declaration of Independence and Revolutionary War was about. The original colonists were economically repressed and underrepresented in their government, and bravely set out to begin a country of their own that stood for personal freedom and the opportunity to prosper.
While much has changed since our nation was born, the core values of freedom and opportunity live on. With the current political climate and heated rhetoric on both sides, it’s safe to say our nation isn’t perfect. We don’t always see eye to eye on everything, but the opportunity to build a better life for yourself and for your family is something that unites all Americans. We all want to build a better world for each other, and I feel truly blessed to live in a place where I’m free to pursue entrepreneurial endeavors and help share economic opportunity with people all over the world. Happy 4th of July to my UnFranchise family – cherish the freedoms you have and the opportunity to build a better world for everyone!
