Thank You all and Merry Christmas
« on: December 24, 2010, 09:09:49 AM »
I don't dive too much into my personal life on here, but it's with a sincere thank you that I tell this story. The year of 2010 is one in which I grew a lot. Three months into the year, I was fired for standing on what I believed in. What followed was two months of wading through cow castings and fixing things others broke. I got back into the newspaper field, but for a part time job and lower pay than the dairy. I went to work at Tractor Supply Company part time, and added another job as a radio show host on Friday nights during football and basketball seasons. All this time I've continued Mowmentum (although I'm still behind almost a month now) and even published a calendar for 2011. My wife and I were concerned because even though our phones were always on the verge of getting shut off, we always managed to keep them on and food in our kids' bellies. So in mid November, I put together a calendar, sold it for more than I should have, and prayed. The response to the calendar was overwhelming. It was the best month I've ever had, and you're to thank. When magcloud deposited my November money, it was for $285 dollars. Most months, my profit from the magazine is around $100. Each month my wife asks why I continue to put time into the magazine, and I always tell her it takes time. Now, $285 dollars may not seem like much, but that deposit was more than I make a month at TSC and the radio combined. Thank you to all who have supported Mowmentum. Whether it was with a purchase or just moral support, you all helped the Turner family celebrate Christmas with the traditional presents. Now we can enjoy His presence all the more knowing that another Christmas miracle came true. Hug your children, your spouses or parents. It is the season of miracles.

A big thanks to you for keeping it going, Aaron. Hopefully, it will pay off.  I was shocked to find out that only 1 other person buys the mag in Cali. We all need to do all we can to support everyone involved in mower racing. I also feel that everyone should be a member of at least 1 of the 2 big assoc. I belong to both. Without our support lawnmower racing won't grow.

You keep doing it and it will grow. I know I keep spreading the word. I think I might get extra copies next year and sell them to fellow racers. Keep up the good work and let me know if I can help in any way.
