This year, Jordan has chosen an entire family to receive his award.
Jordan states, "As a spiritual advisor, I believe it is very important for me to offer a Soul Mates of the Year award. My goal is to use my spiritual counseling and spiritual astrology readings to aid the population of the world in guiding their souls into doing charitable works to harness more of the positive power of the light. By improving close relationships, people are able to gain more spiritual energy and power to harness and manipulate the universe."
The Robertson family of Duck Dynasty is a true "rags to riches" story. By working together, the Robertson family managed to become rich by creating and selling duck calls for hunters. The oldest son, Willie Robertson, is the CEO of the thriving business known as Duck Commander.
What many people do not know is father Phil Robertson spent almost 25 years in a small shack, carving duck calls out of the cedar trees growing in his home swamp in Louisiana. Phil attempted to market his duck calls to Wal-Mart his first year, but was unsuccessful. In fact, his first year he only sold enough duck calls to earn $8000, or about $153.00 per-week.
Rather than complain and nag Phil about "getting a real job," wife Kay stayed positive and fed the family of six and paid the bills, encouraging Phil the entire time. Phil freely admits he could not have had the success he has had without his wife encouraging him and his sons helping him.
Phil and Kay have four sons. Three of these sons are active members of the company. Current CEO Willie had his potential recognized by his father at the age 11. He brought candy to school and set up his own concession stand. He was so successful with this, the school snack bar shut down because he drove it out of business. Brothers Jase and Jep are also part of the "Dynasty." While brother Alan is not part of the family business, he is part of the family and supports his siblings and his parents in their endeavors.
Originally, friends and neighbors thought Phil and Kay were crazy to place Willie in charge of the business. After all, he had no formal training and experience. The universe had other plans for these soul mates, however. Under Willie's helm, the company has exploded to a multi-million dollar business. Willie has gone on to get a business degree and has helped the family dynasty become even more lucrative by steering them into a reality television show.
As Jordan explains, "Anyone who sees them on television knows family is first for them. The way they act towards one another, the way they talk to one other and they way they talk about one other shows their deep feelings towards their family. Phil often uses phrases referring to giving his wife something.
One of the funniest I have ever heard is when he said, "if you catch squirrels for your wife, she will never cut you off in bed." Now, while this sounds hilarious, it shows Phil is concerned about doing the things his wife would like him to do. Her wishes are important to him. In today's society, you do not often see this. I know the Universe is smiling down on them."
Jordan also notes how important Willie's daughter is to him. "Willie often talks about how important it is to him that his daughter is happy. He also says he wants her boyfriends to be afraid of him. He always ensures her boyfriends know who is in charge of her life, guiding her to making the right decisions and remaining virtuous. Family is the main focus for him. He puts his family in front of the company."
While the show focuses on the day-to-day operations of the duck call company, it also focuses on how the Robertson family lives, works and plays together. The men hunt together and play basketball together and the wives have banded together to create and form a line for women to go with the Duck Commander line of products and goods.
