David continues to serve out community, through good times and bad!
From David: I met a friend who had a CDL for 25 years, he always had stable income even when the economy crashed in 2008. I always knew I wanted to have my own business and be financially stable. Driving a bus is a pretty autonomous job, kind of like being your own boss, so he inspired me to look into this. I started at First Transit with a big RTD bus, but I could not do it. It was stressful and difficult. Every day I felt so defeated. Throughout my struggle, I learned a lot there and no longer felt terrified to drive a bus. I never dreamed I would know how to parallel park a bus correctly and drive backwards through cones, so it helped to build my confidence immensely. I never thought I would make it through that part but overcame those challenges and learned all the parts of the bus and passed my CDL exam. After leaving First Transit, I applied to MV Transportation and been here for over a year. I have been recognized many times for my commitment to safe driving and customer service. I am determined to stay because they have been so supportive and kind, not only the company, but my customers who have called in to say how much they enjoy me too! My plan is to maintain this job for as long as possible. On the side, I will be writing a book about how every day people can attain enlightenment and also teaching classes via YouTube and Pantheon for people to hear my lectures on enlightenment and finding inner peace. I want to have stable income and spend time with my kids while they’re young. I will also be focusing on finances and budgeting.
Great job David on your excellent attitude and commitment to service and spreading your teachings!
