A $5,000,000,000 BILLION dollar company...
I would say, "Somebody pinch me!" but I don't want to have any residual marks for the premier of my video with American Tire Distributors (ATD)!
I call my dad everyday to hear about his day, tell him about mine AND to covertly gauge how he's doing. This weekend, I was telling him about my meeting with the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of American Tire Distributors (ATD) - Bill Williams. I was sharing with him how nice Mr. Williams was and the details of our conversation. I could hear my dad's smile through the phone as he was definitely having a proud papa moment!
I was telling him the magnitude of what this relationship meant to my small business -- a GI-NORMOUS company with $5 billion dollars in annual sales truly saw me! They saw in me what I and my parents have known all along and said, "Her! We want her! We want to invest in helping her business grow!"
You have NO IDEA the amount or number of times I cried tears of joy! The realization of every twist, turn, ebb and flow I've been through over the years has shaped, molded and refined me to be ready for this moment. I don't know what the future holds or what new doors of opportunity will swing open, but I know at my core I will remain unchanged. I will continue to honor God and my dad in his time of need, be kind, help others shine, prioritize my family, and make ATD proud they chose me!
Ohhh and there's that handful of other "small" tasks -- multiple courses to finish writing, a million Zoom meetings, marketing collateral to review, recipes to test, video premier, and a huge speaking engagement to prepare for...you know...the usual. 🤣
