My first job was at a mall where I stood for hours at a time selling baked goods that were nothing close to homemade. The kind of customers I remembered having were rude, heavy-set, and bought in bulk. I didn’t agree with it and I wasn’t into sweets but I was fifteen or sixteen at the time and stubborn to say the least. I wanted to work only because my friends were working. My parents were and still are completely against a part-time job. I only lasted a couple months and the $6.00/hr wasn’t worth my time so I moved on to work at a gym that completely transformed my lifestyle.
I’ve worked at a gym since then, a total of four to be exact. Currently, I’m working at a rock wall at the university I attend. I can tell you now, my customers were and are always happy. (It’s the endorphins.) I can give anyone a long list of reasons why being active is important to me and why the food we nourish our with bodies should be everyones top priority. I can say I’m a picky eater but the truth is that as cliche as it sounds, our bodies are a temple. I try to take care of my health as much as I can. and it blows my mind how much some people can’t read a book but they can sit on facebook, twitter, or tumblr for hours. So maybe if people update their status’ more or blog about working out and eating well they’ll figure it out. The knowledge is out there, but I feel like I live in a generation of young people that are too lazy to figure out what to do with their lives and instead figure out what they should be doing by social networks.
and this is where it starts: My homepage is cnnmoney.com I want other people to be just as enthusiastic about their health and well-being as I am. I don’t want to be a doctor. I don’t want to tell people what they need to be eating and what they should not be eating. I just want to spread “food-happiness” Here’s to my dreams and my goals.
Kevin Blanchard: I’m much more in the dream-making business. I think a dream is a goal with a deadline. I think the great competitive edge of America is free enterprise and the opportunity to be your best and to seek a living that excites you.
