My war: Kansas Elite Moving

Reflections of a lumper:

Finding Strength in Challenging times.

Today, I want to take a moment to share some thoughts and experiences with you as a leader in the moving industry. Life as a mover has presented its fair share of challenges lately, and as a man, it can be difficult to find an outlet for venting, especially outside the comfort of our spouses. But even then, burdening a single person with our struggles can be overwhelming. It often feels as though nobody truly cares about our personal well-being. While we may receive temporary support from others, finding genuine care and understanding can be a rare gem.

Recently, my life took an unexpected turn as my wife decided to leave, taking our children with her. I want to make it clear that I hold no bitterness or resentment towards her, as we both played a part in the circumstances that led to this point. However, it is in moments like these that we truly discover who has our back. Unfortunately, the support we expect may not always materialize., I heavily rely on my dedicated crew members, and the nature of this job can take a toll on us both physically and emotionally. I have witnessed tough individuals crumble under the weight of the challenges, while seemingly weak ones have transcended expectations and excelled.

When I first arrived in Reno County, bringing vanline jobs to the area, I faced a monumental task. It took me two years to navigate the complexities and overcome the challenges that came my way, including dealing with death threats from other crews. But what truly troubles me is when I give my all to someone, only to witness doubt and complaints emerge, even from those who lead relatively comfortable lives. Working with individuals who are not mentally prepared for the demands of this job can be emotionally exhausting.

Throughout my ten-year journey in the vanline moving industry, I have always strived to hide any signs of weakness. However, times change, and here I am, finding myself in a difficult position. Charleston, SC, holds a special place in my heart, as it is the state that shaped me. Its houses on stilts serve as a reminder of the struggles I have endured. But now, my family has departed, and I am left to run the company on my own, encountering numerous obstacles along the way. I believe that God is testing me, and I hold onto the hope that brighter days lie ahead.

In this moment, what I need more than ever are solid men and women who genuinely care, individuals who see this job as more than just another 9-5. I long for a community of like-minded people who are committed to personal growth and strive to become the best versions of themselves. I understand that it may sometimes feel as though nobody truly cares about our journey. However, I urge each and every one of you to prioritize self-love and care. Without tending to our own well-being, we may find ourselves trapped in difficult circumstances.

I want to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of you who have been by my side and helped me along this journey. Your support has been invaluable, and I want you to know that I appreciate each and every one of you. Today, I wanted to share these reflections with you and convey my belief that the labor force in Kansas has the potential to achieve so much more. Let us unite and support one another, not just to survive but to thrive. Together, let us strive to become our highest selves before it's too late.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your unwavering support.
