Terry and I have always liked the “Blue Vase Story.” It’s
a story about overcoming hardships, problems and roadblocks
to achieve an objective. It’s a story about perseverance.
It’s a story about being a “winner.”
Throughout the year, we keep our eyes open for someone from
the web site who has demonstrated the ability to overcome
obstacles, to turn problems into opportunities. We look for
a special kind of WINNER.
At the Convention, Terry tells a shortened version of the
Blue Vase Story and then tells the audience the story
of our chosen “winner.” We then award that person our
Blue Vase Award (and a rather beautiful blue vase).
This year’s Blue Vase Award went to Steve Cook.
Without going into long details, Steve has overcome substantial
obstacles and hardships and has persevered in spite of them
all. Steve Cook has definitely proved he is a WINNER.
Steve quit his J-O-B in June 1998 and had only $2,000 to
his name, which he needed to pay bills. Within 2 weeks, he
had done his first deal using none of his own money. By
February 1999, Steve had completed 25 deals without using
any of his own money. And he’s continued to do more deals
day in and day out since then.
Congratulations, Steve! You are a true winner who will
never be denied…
JP and Terry
