We’ve had each others back since day one! ❤️ 🐶

Senna Baby,
One day if you go through Daddy’s Instagram account, and you read this, I want you to know that it’s midnight and I’m laying next to your Mommy who’s asleep, looking through all your pictures on my phone. This is something I find myself doing often.
.
No matter what time it is or however old you are while reading this, I want you to know that words can’t describe how much I love you.
.
Your touch comforts me.
Your company gives me the closest feeling possible of what heaven would feel like.
.
I’m thankful for God giving me a gift as beautiful and precious as YOU!
.
Daddy loves you!

I remember when I was 11 years old going to school in Germany for the first time. There were these two kids who kept calling me every stereotype that had to do with me being from the Middle East. They would ask me if my parents had plans of bombing the school. The most random comments and I wasn’t used to this.
.
Then when we first came to the America, the same thing happened. I gotta give Americans credit because they were much better 💩 talkers then Germans. Apparently, I was fresh of the boat. I still don’t know which boat they were talking about but it is what it is.
.
Then When I joined the Army, soldiers from Alabama, Mississippi, North Dakota and a few other states had never met someone from Iran before. I had to explain myself so many times about being Assyrian that eventually once at a night club in Nashville, a girl thought I said Sicilian instead of Assyrian so I went with it. My nickname was Vinni Deluci on the weekends. Very effective nickname. 😉
.
Eventually the stereotypes got so bad that I started using it against them. I remember once a private in the Army asked me if I was a spy from Iran. I responded with “who told you?” I still remember the look on his face. The best part is I didnt tell him I was kidding for a week until my drill sergeant came and asked me himself.
.
Here’s the kicker. It used to bother the hell out of me at the time. Now, it was one of the best experiences. It helped me learn how to do business with anyone from all walks of life.
.
I’m no longer Sicilian. 😉
.
I’m half Assyrian
Half Armenian
Born in Iran
Lived in Iran for 10 years
And last but not least
A PROUD AMERICAN.
.
They each have a special place in my heart.

So now it’s your turn. What are you proud to represent?

The current educational mode doesn’t favor students nor the educators. 70% of degrees are a waste of money both for the parents & the students involved.
.
If only 30% of students attended college, that means 70% of teachers wouldn’t be needed. They would be able to choose a different career and those educators who stick around get paid better. Basic formula.
Fewer surgeons = high demand
Higher demand = higher pay
Fewer teachers = higher demand
Higher demand = higher pay
.
We currently have way toooooo many teachers in the marketplace, which causes their value to go down. It’s basic supply and demand.
.
Instead, every school from k-12 should add a class about entrepreneurship starting kindergarten. I don’t ever remember a single class I had with a teacher who encouraged me to start a business. Teaching entrepreneurship early will give the other 70% who don’t attend college to come up with ideas on their own or with a few friends to start their own small business. And those who don’t, can simply get a license or learn a trade that doesn’t take 4 years & $100k for a piece of paper.
.
By the way, for those who think this is a revolutionary idea, it’s what we use to do for many years. Each family had their own small business that was ran by the husband and the wife. And kids helped while watching their parents build a business. It also worked because it kept families together.
.
The only challenge is not a single college or politician involved with the need of colleges support, would be supportive of this idea.
.
Only the free market and the people can influence a change this magnitude.

I was inspired by @philheath, AKA the GIFT who’s fighting for his 8th Mr O title tonight to post these pics! The dude made no excuses about having to overcome multiple surgeries to prepare himself to compete for a record tying 8th Mr O. Much respect.
.
These pics are from 1997-1999 when my dreams them were to win the Mr Olympia one day. There was a change of plans last minute to become an Entreprneuer.
.
Either way, Much respect for the amount of discipline and effort it takes to do win it 7 years in a row like Phil has done. It’s a big deal when a team in the NBA win 3 championships back to back let alone to do it for 7 and going for 8th tonight.
.
Go getem champ!

Everything starts and ends with YOU! It’s the only thing you have 100% control over.

💪🏽
