‘An Independent Man’ Hits His Stride at Goodwill

Laibao lived most of his life in China, growing up on a farm and then spending 45 years as a chauffeur. For him, hard work has been a way of life, and he attributes his mental and physical fitness to it. After his wife died, he emigrated to America in 2007 and settled in Nashville to be closer to his daughter.

He struggled to find work, however, because he couldn’t speak English. He came to Goodwill Career Solutions for assistance in 2013, was enrolled in the custodial training program and then hired by Goodwill.
