Hello fellow entrepreneur,

Coming from a big family, 9 of us total, my mom, my 7 sisters and I, as you can imagine, money was not easy to come by.

Back then I don’t think any or many of my friends were getting, nor even knew what the hell, an allowance was.

Oh I had one or two friends whose parents were a little well to do, so maybe they got an allowance, but the rest of us…

I cut yards from age 9 to around age 13 and then I heard of a summer program that hired and paid youth to work doing the summer months, problem was, you had to be 14 years old or older.

I was just 13 years old, so I did the only thing I could think to do, at that age, to resolve the problem, I LIED. 

Yep I lied and said I was 14 years old. Heck, I thought, what’s the worse thing that could happen? Either I’d get the job or I wouldn’t.

If I got the job great cause then I’d make a little more money that summer. But, if I didn’t get the job, I’d just go back to cutting yards and make a little less money for that summer.

So, this then 13 year old, suddenly grew up to the ripe old age of 14 and thus began my entrance into what up until now, has been a very long, but extremely blessed, working career. 

It wasn’t long after entering the work force though that that entrepreneur bug hit me again, and I became restless in the ordinary working world.

So as they say, the plot thickens…

See ya next post.
