In This Episode:
Tyler and Mike welcome into the Richest Men In Town podcast Lester Gray and trust us when we say that you have never been on a ride like this before. Imagine waking up one morning and realizing that everything you have worked for is gone, literally from a million in the bank to millions in debt. That’s just part of Lester’s story and there is so much more here for RMIT listeners. It is adversity that has taught Lester what matters most in life. Out of life’s challenges, Lester and his wife Jane have relied on their foundation of faith in God and trusted each other to rebuild and recreate what they want their lives to look like and who they want to be “one brick a day”. In their time with Lester, the guys get into some great conversation hitting on so many powerful principles including:

-Importance of fathers
-Making big changes with prayer and scriptures
-The power of sacrifice
-Progressing to be bold
-Recognizing the urgency to act
-Redesigning our lives
-Overcoming adversity
-The power of focus
-“Spinning plates” vs. Balance
-The power of morning routines
-Life domains of Spiritual, Mental, Emotional, Relational, Physical, Financial
-Dollars follow value
-Investing in kids

To Lester, thank you for letting us in on the challenging experiences that have shaped you into the man that we admire. To those that have played a part in Lester’s story, we thank you for making a difference. To the entire Gray family, thank you for the way that you are all showing up every day. We cannot wait to see what you all do next!

“And now, O my son Helaman, behold, thou art in thy youth, and therefore, I beseech of thee that thou wilt hear my words and learn of me; for I do know that whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions, and shall be lifted up at the last day.”     –Alma 36:3
“And that wicked one cometh and taketh away light and truth, through disobedience, from the children of men, and because of the tradition of their fathers.” –Doctrine & Covenants 93:39
“But before ye seek for riches, seek ye for the kingdom of God. And after ye have obtained a hope in Christ ye shall obtain riches, if ye seek them; and ye will seek them for the intent to ado good—to clothe the naked, and to feed the hungry, and to liberate the captive, and administer relief to the sick and the afflicted.” –Jacob 2:18-19

“Now is the time for labor. Let the fire of the covenant which you made in the House of the Lord, burn in your hearts, like flame unquenchable.” -Brigham Young
