    John Carver - Bob Farrell - Give em the Pickle

    in Self Help

    I heard this talk years ago and want to share it with you today.

    Born in beautiful Brooklyn, New York, in 1927, a bouncing baby boy named Bobby Farrell was introduced to the world. His grandfather, Patrick Farrell, owned a successful auto parts company and life was good in "the old neighborhood." When the stock market crashed in 1929, it took its toll on the business and the family. Bob Farrell's father took his own life when Bob was only four years old. His mother couldn't cope and placed him and his sister in an orphanage. It was a safe place run by loving people. "I remember crying when I arrived and crying when I left," Bob would later recall, "I'm sure I gave those poor people a harder time than they gave me." His mother remarried five years later and got her children back.

    In 1973, Bob Farrell sold his fifty-five store chain of ice cream parlors to the Marriot Corporation. He remained as its spokesperson and they added nearly a hundred more stores. It was during this time that he developed a speech for new employees called, "Give 'em the Pickle!", based on a letter he received from a disappointed customer. This speech began the third chapter of his career as a highly sought-after motivational speaker and author.

    Empower America Hour with Nick Farrell

    in Goals

    Nick Farrell typical young man who went through life with one foot in Christianity and the other foot in the World. Although I had success in sports and organizations by being picked as a leader I never found fulfillment. I was living on the promise that Jesus was my Lord and Savior, but I didn’t live my life like a Christian. I tried to make it in the world by myself and lived the life of a wild man partying and drinking a lot. I was never happy with my life and was trying to find my way to happiness. Then my world got turned upside down when I was in an accident that confined me to a wheelchair for the rest of my life. Since the accident I have found what I was missing and changed my life to serve God.

    I have a bachelor’s degree in Business Management from McMurry College in Abilene, Texas. I have managed several retail stores and owned my own business and been a member of several organizations. By the world standards I was pretty successful. Married active in different organizations and a leader in business. This is the story of the mistakes I have made and the ways God has saved me from harm and even myself. By learning more about God and what he wants for my life I have found a way to live in joy and peace even though I’m confined to a wheelchair. I felt compelled to write this book to show others that it doesn’t matter what you have done so far in your life. There is time to turn to God and seek His guidance. He is there waiting for you to ask Him into your life.
