I was hanging out with my grandfather one day before he passed, I was about 16 years old.
Downtrodden and complaining because I didn’t have enough money to put on this huge spectacle for my then girlfriend’s birthday who I really wanted to impress.
He asked me what the problem was and I told him I didn’t have enough money and my parents wouldn’t give me any.
Looking right at me with a very serious face, he said “that’s bullshit. Never let money get in the way of a good idea!”
Quickly I sold some stuff, got a few lawn care clients, and sold Asian food seasoning packets——I had the money.
That’s something that I’ll never let leave me, whether I need $100, $10,000 or $10 million.
