Dave Lukas - Lessons for Hannah
46: Lessons for Hannah: Family
Hello Misfit Nation! Welcome to another edition of "Lessons for Hannah!"
In November of 2016, we introduced a new format that we are putting alongside our regular episodes called “Lessons for Hannah.” Hannah is my daughter and one of the main inspirations for the Misfit Entrepreneur. I wanted to have a place where she could go and learn from her daddy and his Misfit friends throughout her life….even after I am gone. If you haven’t listened to the first episode of "Lessons for Hannah," I urge you to as it gives some more background and tells the amazing story of how Hannah came to be in our lives.
"Lessons for Hannah" are short, very useful, and sometimes comical lessons, that I have learned which I want to share with you and give to Hannah to help in your lives. Because I want Hannah to have these for her life, I’m going to speak as though I am talking directly to her. These episodes are a lot of fun and if you think there is a lesson that we should include in these episodes, please don’t hesitate to send it over to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to share it.
This week’s Lesson for Hannah
Hannah, I want to talk to you about the importance of family. As you grow up, you will find that there are more things in life that take your time and commitments you are responsible for. Your work, charity, passions, etcetera. And please be the absolute best you can in all of these areas, but never lose sight of what is really important because in the end, if all of that is stripped away from you – your family will always be there for you. We will always be there to back you up, help you, and love you.
Your family is YOU. We succeed and fail together. We go through the good and hard times together.
No family is perfect, they never will be, but your family is the rock you can always count on to anchor you and give you strength. Never forget that. And never forget that those you interact with have families as well. Celebrate that with them and where you can, encourage them to connect and have the best relationships with their family that they can.
Your mother and I, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and close relatives will do everything we can to make time for us to come together and celebrate our values and unique family traditions.
And someday, god-willing, you will start your own family and add to ours. And you will have the opportunity to pass along this important lesson to your children and help them to understand how important family is to their life and success. I’ll end with a quote I saw that I think really resonates with this less. “Think of your family today and every day thereafter. Don’t let the busy world of today keep you from showing how much you love and appreciate your family.”
I love you, Daddy.

Do you like the emails and newsletters that we send out from Misfit?
When we built Misfit, we looked for the best email management system we could find to make sure we could always deliver the best to our listeners and subscribers. After trying many of the ones you heard of (MailChimp, Constant Contact, etc.), we found Benchmark. It was so much easier to use, had more and better features, and had the best content builder.
We like them so much, we went to them and told them that we wanted to share their solution with Misfit Nation, but they had to give us an amazing offer for our audience.
Benchmark stepped up and is giving Misfit Nation, a FREE 2k account! You can have up to 2000 on your list and you get everything, free!
