    I am just starting to catch up from this weekend's big to-do in Orlando, and I thought it important to mention that one of Michigan's own was honored for doing what is THE reason for prosperity.

    Building a business and creating wealth for so many.

    AFP Michigan's Scott Hagerstrom wrote Saturday:

    "Freedom, Family, Hope and Reward--these are the founding principles that are carved in stone in front of the Amway Headquarters in Ada, Michigan--and Rich lives them each day through his organization.

    But his incredible business success is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his decades of exemplary service to our nation.

    As is best when one finds success, Rich shares it with his community. With his wife, he founded the Richard and Helen DeVos Foundation, which provides grants to a myriad of excellent freedom-oriented groups like Michigan's The Mackinac Center. He works tirelessly on behalf of the National Organization on Disability. And of course, he lends his efforts to AFP Foundation.

    In accepting his award this afternoon, Rich had some pithy advice for the crowd: "Do you want to get anywhere? Do something. Try something. You can never go wrong if you never do anything; but you can do it."

    I think, no more than ever in this country, we need to hear those words and take them to heart."
