MARY L. MARSH
Founder / CEO
By today’s standards and in some circles, I suppose one could say I come from a big family and, thinking back to when I was growing up, our family was larger than most; most of my friends came from families no larger than five. There were six of us; my parents, myself (the oldest), my brother and identical twin sisters.
We were the typical middle-class family; both parents had to work to “make ends meet”. Growing up, we always had what we needed and it was always enough but of course, as kids, we didn’t think so. We were taught that in order to get the extra things we wanted, we had to earn them. We each earned an allowance, it was never given to us; my brother mowed ours and the neighbor’s lawns, the twins did little jobs for Mom and I babysat for the couple down the street.
My mother sometimes worked a second job in the evenings and my father worked overtime for a few weeks here and there over the years; it was normal to see our parents always working so hard – it was a way of life for all of us. As children, we knew not to ask for much; instead, we asked what we could do to earn the things we wanted because it was expected of us. Years later, I learned my parents worked overtime and evening jobs during the month of December; it was the only way they could afford to give their 4 children a nice Christmas.
At 14, I was hired as a counter clerk at the only Dairy Queen in Orlando, FL in 1972; my very first, real job. I was paid $1.00/hour and I couldn’t have been more pleased with myself! Can you imagine a 14-year old with all of that ice cream! I kept that job for more than 2 years, working 50 hours/week; every day after school until closing and every weekend. As long as I kept my grades up, I was allowed to keep my job and my earnings for spending money; my weekly paychecks were $50.00. When I left Dairy Queen at 16, I was making $1.20/hour.
Fast forward 40 years….
I founded and launched Aim2Assist on December 19, 2014 and became its CEO; I wore all the “hats” for the first 1 ½+ years and at the end of the 2nd year, the company was completely self-supporting, was operating on a small profit and had grown 32%.
I am very proud of the work we have accomplished, with a lot of help from Up Above. I’ve been blessed with the drive, determination and the will to do whatever it takes to make this company a success; with the unwavering faith and belief that we will succeed and that giving in or giving up is never an option.
I’m grateful for the amazing team standing with me, day after day, for whom I feel a deep affinity and enormous respect. It’s incredibly reassuring when you know without a doubt that you can trust and depend on each and every member of your team to always make right decisions based on what’s the very best for the company, its employees and contractors.
I was taught the value of hard work and shown strong work ethics at a very young age; my parents continued to set that example throughout their lives and my own. To learn years later that my children always received high praise from their respective employers was, and still is, an amazing feeling.
“Be the example you desire to see.”
