Our next installment of our month-long love letter to Orange County (entitled Why We Love OC) spotlights Paul Tran, local Anaheim native and jack of all trades. This guy's got his fingers in more pies than Sweeney Todd. He's a restauranteur (he founded the famous Cajun Corner restaurant in Westminster and will be opening another restaurant in mid 2010), he's an advisor on wealth management and franchise developement (he was recently featured in MSN Money) he's got a heart the size of Texas (not only is he one of the friendliest and encouraging people you'll ever meet, he's the co-creator of ConnectOC, a non-profit group bringing OC's businesses, government and community leaders, and charitable organizations together to help others), and despite being a workaholic with all these projects, he somehow finds time to also be a knight in shining armor to his girlfriend Jennifer Ho. He should start a motivational speaking program to let us in on his secret if you ask me! So without further ado, Paul Tran's witty and poetic list of reasons why he loves this great county of ours.
"BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER:
All of my family members are here. Yay for free babysitting!
THE "GOLD RUSH" NEVER LEFT:
This is where I built my wealth and business - The Cajun Corner restaurant in the city of Westminster and Focal Point Financial in Anaheim. Our economy rocks!
SOCIALIZING IS PART OF HUMAN NATURE:
The nicest, most hard-working people live here. I'm proud to associate with them.
LOVE CONQUERS ALL:
This is where I met the girl of my dreams!
SAFETY & EDUCATION ARE PARAMOUNT TO ME:
This is where I'm raising my future kiddies.
STAYING YOUNG IS THE KEY TO LIVING FOREVER:
Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm make it easy
HEALTH IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WEALTH:
We have the healthiest and most active lifestyle here.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION:
Mr. Sun likes hangin' out with us and we're close by to everywhere we want to be.
In short...I LOVE ORANGE COUNTY TO REESE'S PIECES!"
