We have a sponsorship!

Taylor Speaking:

Here I am, sitting on Steve’s MAC trying to think of something relevant to blog about. I suppose it’s about time I updated you on current events.

The Visgatis family has unstoppable generosity. Since this trip is going to cost a great deal of dough, it is crucial that I continue to find work outside of EMC. Whenever I can spare time away from corporate America and high endurance training, I have the privilege of looking after 3 young boys. Luke is the youngest. At just 9 years of age, he surprises me with great intelligence. With a never fading energy, he is by far the most outrageous and colorful of the gang. He reminds me a great deal of my younger self. Nicholas is 11 years old. His kind heart is seen throughout each interaction we have. He is always ready to serve and often puts himself last. What a role model he will make for the younger generation. Christian is 13. He has hit the age where my supervision is not always necessary, however, we enjoy a Qdoba/movie adventure now and again. He helps me maintain the other two.

Over the last 12 months, I have grown to love the visgatis family. Nancy, aka: super mom, is a wonderful woman. She loves her children and dedicates all of her energy to train them to grow into fine adults. Frank, aka: our HERO, co-owns Customer Centric Selling. He provides sales training and sales performance improvement.

After a ferocious winter storm in December 2010, I was asked to shovel the Visgatis’ walkway. While working, I began to share with Nancy my dreams of cycling across the country. “Have Frank sponsor you”, she suggested. For the last 10 months, I had hoped that this would happen, until last week when…

Frank  graciously offered to sponsor our trip!

Here is the deal:

1)Frank will match dollar for dollar any sponsors we pick up from now, until take off.

2)Frank will match dollar for dollar the money that either Steve or I earn from working for him family.

3)God is GOOD!

I guess what it all really boils down to is the fact that I am extremely grateful for Frank and Nancy. WE HAVE A SPONSORSHIP!

T minus 2 months and 20 days.
