There’s always room for a new feel good story or stories that make you say, “awww!” It seems like we don’t hear too many of such things that happen to be considered good news. Here’s one for the weekend! Sebastian Hirsch comes to us from California after moving there away from his family 5 years ago for work after finishing butler servicing school. Sebastian didn’t know that leaving for 5 years would greet him with so many troubles concerning his parents health.
Near the time of his graduation from school, he got a message from his father saying that his mother is deteriorating both physically and mentally. This cry for help was exactly what Hirsch needed to hear especially since his mother was getting to be too much for his father to take care of. Sebastian and his wife sprung into action. They remodeled their house for two extra rooms and the moment the rooms were done, they booked a flight to Florida and picked up Sebastian’s mother and brought her back to her new home in Sunny California.
The best way to convey that feel good story is by word of mouth. The telling od the story is so much more powerful coming from the source. The personal touch always comes through in the telling. I like to hear how the story is told as the words paint a picture of the world around the story. If you have that feel good story you want to share just let it fly. The receiving end of the story will be appreciative. Tim DeCapua has a whole plethora of stories that he loves to tell. If you manage to get him talking you will not be disappointed.
After suffering for months with neuropathic pain and partial seizures for several months, Jennifer Tzu, who lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, had finally had enough. “I did research for how to cure my condition, but never found answers I needed,” said Jennifer, “I was certain there was no help for me at all. I couldn’t even find how to make the pain less intense,” she continued.
Ms. Tzu has been living with this condition for many years, but over the last few months it had gotten worse as she stated in her interview. The problem came from a number of different sources. First, Ms. Tzu was a diabetic who neglected the condition. Her heavy anxiety led to alcoholism which greater increased her risk of neuropathic pain. Just in the few months of her careless unhealthy lifestyle triggered what she is struggling with now.
In her quest for relief, she turns to research and through investigating the Dove Medical’s page on CrunchBase.com, she finds her answer. Jennifer is now healthier than ever from her medications and therepy and thanks Dove Medical for the answers it provided.
Every so often you come across a great business and success story such as one in the Doug Pitassi interview. In this big and booming world a business, sometimes business doesn’t boom. Instead of your business going boom, you boom instead as you fall hard to the ground. Christina Wallace, current vice-president of branding and marketing at Startup Institute and former cofounder of Quincy Appare knows all about this experience from facing her own troubles and struggles. After she started up Quincy Apparel with former a classmate from Harvard Business School, her business came to a screeching halt and shut down. Christina says she stayed in bed for three weeks.
Christina Wallace took a train from the Valley up to San Francisco and met with two mentors. During her time meeting with the mentors, they all agreed that it was the end for Quincy. After it was all over, she says she spent three weeks straight in bed but after 21 days of sleeping, crying, she decided to pull herself together and rejoined the world.
There is a seed of equal or greater benefit in every adversity IF you have the eyes to see it. During this process of failure, she says she learned to be as open about her failure with friends and family as she was willing to be about her successes.
