This week, I received a magazine from the Wisconsin Maritime Museum celebrating raising 9.5 million dollars to build a tower that houses all sorts of displays for the museum. This just happens to be the tower that my Dad designed and created when he was the President and Chairman of the Board. Until my Dad took that President’s seat it was nothing more than a wish and he turned it into a reality.
I started reading the names of the donors and I realized that my community had donated a ton of money cumulatively to my father’s dream. This is the direct result of building a community of people around you — friends, family, and acquaintances — who work hard to put themselves in a financially advantageous place, then pay it forward without the expectation of anything back.
