Bragging Rights....

                                                 ~ Behind this great man is a sweet wife cheering him on~ 

The title " Bragging Rights" has been used a lot which means we have much to be thankful for! Indulge me one more time while I brag about Travis Paul~ We are sooo very proud of him for so many reasons. The person and husband that he is, his love for the Lord and commitment to follow Him, and his incredible sense of humor and love for laughter. But his biggest attribute I believe is his incredible drive for excellence.  
He was simply born with it!
He has always wanted to learn and pushed himself in sports and academics. And now he is pouring that drive into his work with such passion that he surprises us constantly with his achievements. When he applied at Irving Hughes they were not even hiring. But he walked right in and told them he wanted to work for them. He had studied all about the company and knew that they were the number one company in San Diego.They told him he would be a liability because he didn't know enough about the business to represent them. But he sold them on his idea of learning from the best and after a two hour interview left with the job. They had NEVER hired someone off the street before! I will never forget him calling us after, telling us the story of them firing questions at him about how he would handle certain situations and he never backed down. He held his own with such confidence and at 23 began working in his dream job learning from the very best! {because he was 23 they did have to endure fart sprays in the boardroom, cornhole games in the hall, dart gun shootings and all kinds of pranks and jokes.{ he is successful ,but I never said he was boring } 
They have been so good to him! They treat him like a son, and have wanted him to work his way up little by little so he would not become spoiled.  
They always have had his best interest at heart.
Two days ago one of the owners handed him  new business cards that said Travis Carter "Vice President"   Of course we are thrilled  about the earning potential that comes along with it but mostly we are thrilled that after a few short years he has proved himself worthy of the risk they took hiring him. He has made the company thousands of dollars, knows San Diego like the back of his hand and has become a huge asset!  
Travis we never had any doubt you would !
