So, it has been a while since I did a Visionary Spotlight. It’s long overdue. So, of course, we all know people who seem to make magic happen with the simplest tools. I have always been a huge fan of people who can fix and repair things with ease. Of course, some people are more technically inclined than others, and Romeo Guishard, Jr. is both creative and mechanically inclined. I have seen this dude take a string trimmer that was found in a river and bring it back to life. Yeah, I know anything is possible, but he fixed this thing in 30 minutes. If I had found it, I would have been preparing to head to the recycling company to hand it over.
So, a little background on this guy. First, let me say I appreciate his continued service to others. He is a U. S. Army veteran that began his career at home in the U. S. Virgin Islands. He started out as a water purification specialist. He still boasts about his ability to, not only, make any water potable, but he can also make it drinkable. He grew up in the British Virgin Islands and drove all sorts of vehicles (even as a child). I mean, imagine a 7-year-old that can operate heavy equipment better than some adults (backhoe, excavator, tractor trailer…I know). Eventually, he changed his job in the military to transportation, and, of course, he was excellent at it. So, he can diagnose (and repair) anything, and he can operate any wheeled vehicle.
Some of his hobbies include model boat racing. Now, many people buy stock boats or have other build them. Not this guy. He puts everything together himself! I never considered how many tiny parts go into a model boat. All the pieces are, indeed, little boat parts. Just imagine a small scale racing boat with an inboard engine. It’s impressive to see in action. It was even more interesting to see him modify the engine so that it could win races with his fellow r/c boat enthusiast. Of course, being from the islands, he can captain a boat (and repair them). I mean this guy should just open his own shop.
He has done all sorts of cool and unusual things. Long story short, he is a jack of all trades, but he has mastered a few, too. Romeo continues to fix and repair cars, trucks, washers, dryers, and so much more. The universe has genuinely gifted this guy with magic hands. If all of this wasn’t enough to warrant a look, he’s also working on his private pilot’s license. So, click on the videos attached below. Like the videos, follow, share, leave comments. And as always…
Keep on pushing,
