That would be my very lovely, hard working daughters numbers 1, 2 & 3. Each of them through dint of hard work and focus have come a long way and have really taken charge of their destinies. Life is supposed to be a challenge and they continue to address each challenge that comes up. 2014 marked some real accomplishments for each that I feel deserve to be recognized.
Daughter #1 (along with son-in-law 1A) were forced to become entrepreneurs after the economic collapse in 2009. Now in the third year of their business, they are getting serious traction and are showing that they have an excellent future ahead of them. There will be more challenges ahead because that's part of being an entrepreneur, but they've conquered some of the harder things that can be thrown at them and I know that they have what it takes to get the success they want in life.
Daughter #2 has had so many twists and turns in her saga that it could read like a soap opera. But in December she found out that she got tenure in the State Department Foreign Service that ensures that she has this career path through her retirement if she wants. What a blessing. Bravo Pu!
And Daughter #3, she decided a year and half ago that to make the money she wanted for her family she needed to change for an operations position into sales. This is a girl whose not shown any predilection toward selling in her life! 2014 was her start. She had no pipeline or book of business to work from plus gave birth and took 4 months of family leave. In spite of all that she nearly hit her full sales target for the year. Well done.
