Hi, I'm William. US Army Veteran and a retired Car Salesman.
I created CarFinderUSA.com for two reasons.
I was born in Charleston, SC in 1957 to poor parents who tried their best to give me, my older brother and sister a chance at a better life. However, we lost both our parents in tragedy.
After the loss of my parents, my grandmother (on my mother's side) came to Charleston and gathered us together under her wings and raised us up as best she could. I watched her work 6 days a week as a house maid to a wealthy white family in a small town in the South Carolina Low Country.
Many times in my youth I heard the words: The Lord Moves in Mysterious Ways. I can honestly say at the time.. I didn't have a clue what it meant. However, what really stuck with me was what my Grandmother taught us. She would say: The Humble Child will Taste the Grace.
I grew up working in the Tobacco Fields of South Carolina... it was fun riding on the back of my uncle's pick up truck sitting on the downed tailgate. After graduation from High School, I joined the US Army in an effort to help my grandmother. She made me wear my dress greens to church when I came home on leave from the Military. She was so proud of me.
After returning to South Carolina from the military I worked as a delivery driver, a certified nursing assistant as well as in the construction field. It was when I became a Car Salesman that I found my true calling. I brought with me what my grandmother taught me. Honesty and Integrity. I never lied to a customer to sell them a car, but instead I treated each customer with the same respect and professionalism that they expected and deserved.
Over the years God has truly blessed my life. I'm not saying that my life has been easy. I had to work harder than the other car salesman because of my skin color. No matter what, I remained focus on doing people right. I even paid a customer's car payment to avoid a repo.
I am a Christian black man.. and if I haven't learned anything else from reading my Bible, it is that Christ wants us to help each other. As I write this I am reminded of the words of Christ when He set the standard for all people to live by:
35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.
This is why I created www.CarFinderUSA.com. To help people. I don't take a salary from the money generated through this website. Instead, I donate 95% of all earning to local homeless shelters.The other 5% is used to maintain and promote this website.
