As I try to think about how they turned out so successful beyond the fact that they are smart, energized, passionate, and work hard from their own volition, I think the key is giving them opportunities, taking them with you on your journey, walking the talk and leading by example.
They were given privileged experiences, but only because I took them there. They learned from these adventures, and they struggled (moving schools and towns every other year). The key may have been walking the talk, not talking the walk. Just a thought. In the end, they are my best achievement. Lawyer and MBA. With a future ahead of them that I could only hope for. Go MOMs.
