Nobody was seeing this coming. Back in 1975 no one in the state of Illinois would expect that decades later a young entrepreneur would change their lives.
He received many awards and distinctions. He raised his networth up to hundreds of millions of dollars. His company was listed in top 100 American transportation executives. He raised money for Universities, medical centers, charities, foundations… ,distributed thousands of coats for people in need in winter, actively participated in green-events, supports crime fighting organizations… just to name a few of them.
Where did this man came from?
If you live in Illinois you probably already know that enigmatic philantropist could be no other. Perry Mandera has been doing it for a lot of time, even in a minor scale after succeeding with his multi-million dollar logistics business. What made him reach those levels of abundance and contribution?His business and life reflect his unique drive and set of core values that have been following for the last 30 years. Because of it he managed to become who he is today. However, it did not happen overnight.
It was in 1975 when Perry started building up his skill set. Perry Mandera joined the Marines after finishing high school and also work for logistics to gain knowledge about the industry. By 25 he already succeeded with his own version of logistic service business.
But it obviously was not as easy as saying it.
We would have never done it unless he followed his principles and main values, the same ideas that make him bring so much value to Illinois afterwards. In fact, here is when Perry’s obsession of helping more and more people started to grow rapidly.It must affected his motivation. Everyday he would be inspired to improve more his skills and being more innovative. After all, donating and helping people without expecting anything is like giving someone else a piece of yourself Perry Mandera explains. What happens next is that piece somehow manifests making you make determined and devoted, as a way to say ‘thank you!’.
Certainly people are big drive in our lives. People make us feel connected, we build experiences and create emotions and stories together and share time and love with team.Even though the example of Perry Mandera may seem unusual to you, for him is a normal thing. He is aware of the natural human being need of community and socializing. This is why Perry puts so much effort in building relationships and bringing people together.
