Hi, it’s time for Christmas!
Today on the 24th of December, I bring you a very personal, very private story of my life.
It was years and years back… the weeks before Christmas.
I could even write – once upon a time… only that this story is real!
Back then, I had to move back in with my parents.
And I was already above 30.
My family had left to live in the Philippines already.
And the idea was to follow them within one year.
Two weeks before Christmas, the phone rang.
My business partner called in.
Enthusiastically I picked up the phone and started talking: “How are you, ready for the big launch?”
We had been working for the past eight months on a new product.
“Stefan…” he said, with a gloomy voice. “… that’s why I am calling you…”
“What is it?” I asked, feeling that something was off.“… I can’t continue this!
It isn’t working for either of us. I end this partnership right now.
Should have done it earlier.
We just don’t know how to sell it!
” There I was… “Ok. Well, if that is what you think is best for you. There is nothing I can do to convince you otherwise, is there?”
Of course, there wasn’t.
There I was now, almost a year of work blown away in one phone call.
I couldn’t do it on my own.
All the delivery was based on him.
But that was only the beginning of an honestly trying time.
The phone rang.
So, I picked it up.
It was my Wife.
Before I could say anything more than Hi, she started talking.
“Sorry that I disturb you!”
Are you kidding?
I thought to myself before I had the chance to say something she went on:
“I am in the hospital, they gave me four weeks before they can’t help any longer. My C-Section Scar started to grow wildly and connected itself to my guts. I need your help!”
My heart stopped.
My legs started shaking.
My head was spinning.
“How much do they need?” I asked with an impending feeling of doom. “25’000”, she said. “25’000 Pesos?”
I asked with a slight feeling of relief.
“No, love, Euro.”
Before I made her feel even more worried, I answered quickly. “Only? Ok, we will manage that!” She started crying. “How? We have barely enough to get by.” “Don’t worry,” I said, “It’s going to be fine!
I was working on something big and will launch it now!
“You are going to be just fine! Trust me!”
I wasn’t even trusting myself.
I had nothing; that was the truth.
I didn’t even have 20 Euro on me or anywhere.
The bank was empty.
And income was no were to be seen.
My Business partner… well, the ex-business partner just took off.
He was doing his own thing again.
And I was sitting there with nothing.
Not even a penny to my name.
This moment was the one moment of truth… when I finally started to take my journey seriously.
I had to.
The life of my wife was on the line.
And we had two little kids three years and a 6-month-old.
They didn’t even have any passports, were traveling with an embassy signed and documents to go as ambassadors.
I couldn’t even get them if something went wrong now.
See, this was when things started to look dire.
At first, I didn’t know what to do, but then… then I found the way.
Come back tomorrow for the next episode on this Christmas exceptional Blog!
Read you soon – sunny regards
