The Many Faces of Bruce McGuy
I would like to introduce you to the many faces of Bruce McGuy. It is not unusual for an individual to have many sides of what makes them a whole person. As much as I love the business world, my heart is in what I do for others more than for myself. It’s just one of the many faces that we have as humans. My goal is to mentor as many young people as possible in order to show them that love, hope, and dreams are all achievable no matter what life you may come from. As a child, your destiny seems to be predetermined but as a young adult you will realize that your future is not necessarily what you were taught to make of it. It takes a mentor to help guide a young individual into the realization that they do have the choice to set their own destiny.
After more than 20 years of playing Santa Claus and working with tens of thousands of children and receiving thousands of letters from many of these children, I have come to the conclusion that the children are not necessarily getting the mentorship that they need at a young age. We find that the parents are very busy, and the government has changed the educational system to the point where there is no acknowledgement of love, hope and achievement of one’s dreams. We, as parents, grandparents, relatives, friends, family, and teachers need to instill these values for our children. My goal is to be whether it’s a parent, grandparent, friend, family member or Santa Claus to share these valuable life lessons. My next series of children’s books will be dedicated to teaching and fulfilling these needs. To love and to give love, to hope and to give hope, to dream and to achieve those dreams, and to encourage others to do the same.
