And there are millions of people that don’t yet know Cherry Republic. We hope to touch every heart and lift every spirit we can reach with cherries. It is a passion– to reach people and help them make their day with cherries. Everyone deserves a ruby red morsel of joy in their mouth sometime in their life.
But this is where it gets personal to me. I love the personal growth I acquire from growing the company. There is a challenge to growing. Tackling those challenges leads to personal growth. I read a Abraham Lincoln biography when I was in college. And the biographers conclusion to his life, was that Lincoln was fiercely committed to improving himself as an individual. It was his lifelong passion. His example is a terrific example for all of us as we head into a new year.
“Let us strive to improve ourselves, for we cannot remain stationary; one either progresses or retrogrades.”
