Sutton Parks talks about about chasing a dream and living out of his car. If you can believe it, he was thankful for it. He moved to Nashville, TN to pursue a music career over 15 years ago.
Tony Robbins rocking chair test. If you’re 70 years old sitting in a rocking chair, looking back on your life, would you have any regrets.
Sutton moved to Nashville with only $500 in his pocket. He started a job working in the mail room of BMI music. He was promoted eventually and spent six years in a computer room. When a red light would go on, he’d call a computer programmer to fix it.
Sutton ended up hating his job, but couldn’t quit because he had a mortgage. Sound familiar? His stuff ended up on the curb after a foreclosure when he was 37 years old. Now he could quit the job he hated, but he had no where to live.
He ended up sleeping at a truck stop for nine months, living out of his car and being grateful for all he had. Listen to hear just how grateful he really is.
Sutton started a cleaning business two years ago. It gives him the freedom and flexibility to do what he loves during the day.
Reliable and Trustworthy is Sutton’s tag line in business and in life.
When Sutton wants something, he makes sure it’s important and goes after it. He won’t stop until he gets it, but he does it smartly.
“Be grateful for everything and gratitude is an action.” – Sutton Parks
