Life is full of good and bad surprises, and we sometimes can't control what sort of wonder life throws at us.
For one woman named Angel, it was a pleasant surprise when she was featured in the show called Undercover Boss. The reality show aims at revealing to CEOs what working for them is really like, so they are disguised as new employees in order to know their workers on a different level.
Angel thought she was just training a new associate at Modell’s, but it turned out that the supposed associate, Joey, was Mitchell Modell, the CEO of Modell Sporting Goods himself.
Unaware of Joey's real position, Angel received him with open arms, graciously showing him the general operations of the store and the principle of good customer service.
Her attitude and professionalism no doubt impressed Modell. In an instant, their conversation soon switched from a professional discussion to a personal one. Joey informed Angel that he recently closed up his shop because of the competition in the street.
The mother-of-three then tried to encourage him with her own story. When Angel was 25 she got pregnant and lost her old job as a restaurant manager.
She now lives at a homeless shelter with her children. She explained that things used to be awful when they were completely homeless and, sometimes, had nothing to eat, but now things were progressing. She encouraged him saying,
'Things get better as long as you have that drive in there. As long as you push and push, things are gonna be better, you're gonna be fine.'
Modell’s interaction with Angel moved him to tears and great generosity.
On a fateful day that would change Angel's life completely, Modell revealed to her who he really was.
The amazing boss promoted her and gave a raise of $14,000 and a $250,000 tax-free cheque to get a better apartment for herself and her children. Angel's reaction was heart melting, the news knocked her off her seat.
She was greatly overjoyed, and she wept and smiled at the same time. Hardworking Angel now has a better life for herself and her children. Thanks to her diligence, welcoming character, and her sympathetic boss.
