Success And Achievements Of Edward Slinin
In a time where an economic crisis has many struggling to pay their bills and a great many more out of work, there’s a certain magic to a good rags-to-riches story. Both inspiring and motivational all at once, these are stories that soften give those that are down on their luck a sense of much needed hope.
For instance….did you hear about the little girl from Mississippi that was born from two unwed parents? Her mother was a maid and her father was a coal miner; both parents worked rigorously to make sure all bills were paid, leaving the girl to be raised by her grandmother. Despite this poor upbringing, the little girl went on to become an ultra-successful businesswoman. Her name has appeared in Forbes and she is currently worth $2.7 billion. Also, she’s a household name. You may have heard of her. Her name is Oprah Winfrey.
There are plenty of examples to choose from. How about Andrew Carnegie, the boy from Scotland who was born into a poor family, only to later grow up to dominate the steel industry. Carnegie worked his fingers to the bone in his youth, working 12 hour shifts as a telegraph messenger and railroad foreman. Through dedication and hard work, he eventually went on to be worth more than $120 billion.
These stories are so relevant to the everyday worker because it highlights one simple fact: This could be you.
All major success stories have to start somewhere. There is absolutely no reason that your background can’t be the beginning of such an influential and inspiring story.
Case in point: consider Eduard Slinin. He was a normal everyday individual that made it from the bottom to the top with the same skill set as most others.
Eduard was twelve years old when he came to America with his family. Like most of us, he worked his way from job to job as he grew up, trying to stay afloat in the wake of bills and monthly payments. After a total of 27 jobs, Eduard eventually fell into the transportation business. Much like Carnegie coming to the railroads, Eduard felt that he had found his calling and that transportation was where he would be able to succeed – where his rags-to-riches story would begin.
At the age of 18, Eduard opened his first car service business. From that day in 1982 he has not looked back. Eddie has managed to create and successfully build a transportation company – Corporate Transportation Group – is not just one of the premiere limousine services in New York – but in nearly 450 other countries as well. From celebrities to Wall Street bankers, Eduard has attracted the sort of clientele that brings in the kind of money other transportation services could only dream of.
However, the most important aspect of Eduard and his business is that he does not let his impressive clientele go to his head. Instead, he treats all of his clients the same, valuing their comfort and their business more than a bottom line or dollar amount.
Of course, with the current economic woes, many of his reliable clients have disappeared. But this has not deterred Eduard one bit. He remembers his meager beginnings and remains humble about his success. No matter the economic climate, he knows that the same tools he used to get to his current position—pure determination and hard work—will keep him afloat and carry him successfully into the future.
