El Paso, Texas: The 1993 Small Business Person of the Year from the State of Texas, Heliodoro Valadez started Best Buy Tortilla Factory after he lost his job; he could not find another and he had nine children to support. His goal was to make 200 dozen tortillas a day simply to replace the income he'd lost. He did better than that. He made such a good tortilla, sales grew to over $5 million with 12% margins. His son says, `Pop, if you were a Harvard MBA, this would be no big deal. But since you're a guy who started with no money and absolutely no education, Best Buy is a bit of a miracle.'

1. What are your life goals? List those things that could drive you to say, `If I don't do this, my life won't be complete.'
2. You can't take it with you. Really. It's a fact. We all need an Exit Strategy.
3. Re-read an old book. Bundle up and sit out in the sun, and enjoy that moment with an old thoughtful friend. If the author is still alive, send a note! I'm sitting down with Novak's Business As Calling.
4. Support education. From the schools that touched you to the associations that keep you current and professional, and even to that local PBS station. Write a bunch of "little" end-of-year checks. You'll feel better for it and it'll help release your power of knowing.
5. Get some help. Give some help.
We are never too old to ask for advice and surely you know someone younger who would enjoy your time to reflect about the meaning and value of life. We all deeply benefit when we get some help and give some help.
