The wind beneath my wings


17 years ago my best friend, mentor and daddy had to say goodbye to us. I learned so much over the years from him. Such things as “bite first bite hard and don’t let go”. There is no room for whining in the business world. My father built a legacy during his short 54 years. He turned one small family auto parts store into a chain of stores in several states. He was asked to advise fortune 500 companies such as 3M and PPG. He mentored entrepreneurs how to better their businesses by incorporating computer systems such as QuickBooks. Most of these businesses did not even own a computer. So we started monthly trainings. If we could empower them to operate more efficiently they would build strong which in turn benefited us.  He realized by bringing small to medium businesses together they can learn from one another. Once a month he would conduct a networking group for business owners. Companies as large as Danbury hospital, Marcus Dairy and of course our family business, Levine Automotive would be present to have discussions on health care, workman’s compensation insurance and the latest laws and regulations that effect operations. After his death a fund was set up to honor his work for the business owners in the area. Although he was only here for a short time he accomplished so much. He would always say there is plenty of time for sleep when we are no longer here. I miss my best friend every minute of every day but I know he will remain in my heart and mind guiding me to make the right decisions and encouraging me through his words.


At the end of the day it is not important;

How big your home is

How much money you haveHow many cars you have

At the end of the day it is important;

Your Compassion, Dedication, Kindness and Patience

It is all about WHO YOU ARE

It all starts with the end.

Thank you Dad I am the luckiest daughter to have been blessed with a father as great as you

I have been a business owner for over 25 years but can say for the first time; “I own my business it doesn’t own me.” I have traded in my Brick and Mortar for a Click and Order. This gives me financial and time freedom. My business is operates 24 hours a day 7 days a week with no employees. I wake up when I am done sleeping and am able to work anywhere in the world there is a WiFi connection.
