Giving up is the only sure way to fail. That is why Pat Clark will never forget the feeling he felt when his friend Kevin whispered these words to him, “Never give up!” This move was after a series of events led to Pat Clark’s foster family punishing him for a whopping month.
Kevin had sent a note to Pat with $5 in it. The message in the letter was that they all loved him despite all he had gone through. These words and this kind gesture are what kept Pat’s hopes alive.
Pat’s life was synonymous with foster care. He had moved into foster care when he was in the 7th grade. His mother suffered from schizophrenia, and his dad was never in the picture. Life in foster care was rough.
At the age of 16, Pat called it ‘quits.’ He was no longer going to stay in foster care. He had dreams he wanted to accomplish and it was not going to be in that place.
Pat married the love of his life, Shielagh soon after college. Before starting their own company Precision Pro Wash, he worked in various jobs. Pat worked as a builder grading lots while washing cars part-time and experimenting with pressure washing. Unfortunately, the builder couldn’t survive the 2007 recession, and had to let Pat go.
Things became difficult with no job and a family to take care of, but Pat Clark never gave up. Pat founded his company with an abundance of tenacity, prayer, and hard work.
