There is one saying that best describes the relationship between my dad, Mike Strong, and myself.
“Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat every day.”
My dad has been my father, friend, mentor and partner (and in that order). He has not only taught me how to fish, but instilled a drive in me that I want to have the biggest fishing boat in the whole marina.
He has taught me to never pass blame, accept all responsibility and go out and get what I really want in life. At an age when most of his friends have slowed down or retired, he has come in to help me accomplish all of my goals and dreams, working around the clock to insure they are met.
Happy Birthday Dad!
