Defying the Odds... : The Lift | Brian@GrowthWorks

Defying the Odds...

by Brian McDermott on 01/05/14

Three minutes at Tim's Place will make your day...

Tim Harris has not let his disability steal his dreams, and his story is inspiring others.

He always wanted to own a restaurant. He's so happy with his circumstances he dances through the parking lot on his way into work. He serves more hugs to customers than burgers (42,000 and counting). Oh, and by the way, he has Down Syndrome, which he describes as meaning he was "born to be awesome."

In an online article in Interviews that Matter, he's asked: "Is [being very confident] important when you run your own business?" His response: "It’s important to believe in yourself and in your dreams. When I believe I have the friendliest restaurant in the world, other people believe it too."
