Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - I liked that quote, so fresh and true! Because I never heard of Jimmy John Liautaud, I looked him up, and now I know more about the Jimmy John restaurant founder/owner who is a 2023 billionaire! I was also surprised to learn he's from Arlington Heights, IL, a city I am well familiar with from living near that part of the state. 

His restaurants have been established all over Texas! His Mission Statement explains a lot!

Founded in 1983, it staked its reputation on freshly made food with the best ingredients it could source, made so fast you could be in and out the door before you know it. Its mission statement is all about meat products made in the USA, bread that's baked fresh daily, and sustainable practices.

I don't like to even try doing things that I know I can't do right, haha.  Everyone should make sure they are doing the best they can with everything that they do!

Good morning Paul. 24 hours in a day for all. Those that do it wrong may have to do it over. Those who shortcut may have to pay later. Do it right and it can be a delight. Why waste time? Enjoy your day.

Hello Paul  I believe this is the first time I have heard 'Birthday Party' mentioned in any motivational words or quotes.  Pretty fun.  m

Hi Paul- I love the quote!  Our friend always raved about his restaurants but I have yet to try it.

YES! And yet so many times this is not the case. Why don't more people take such responsibility seriously???

LOVE the quote and agree wholeheartedly - if you're going to do ANYTHING, do it with all your heart!

Thanks to you and Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, I know the last name of the Jimmy John's founder. On a side note, he is quite philanthropic and one Tuesday each month, Ray and I pick up lunch or dinner there as 100% of his profits go to a local charity. Their sandwiches are fresh and preservative-free - and they are delicious!
