I was born an entrepreneur always wanting more out of life, asking the why questions and looking for ways to make money since elementary school.
I remember being as young as eleven years old and creating ways to make money. It was nearing November and we had a group of six solid friends who wanted to celebrate Christmas together.
None of us had any money, but we wanted to decorate our ‘club’ for Christmas. Our club was a few board haphazardly thrown together behind a shed near my house.
I thought it would be good for us to buy each other presents…who doesn’t like more presents?
Long story short, I rallied the troops to make some money. I went out to all the doors in the neighborhood and offered raking services. A few of my friends joined me. Others found a few things to sell. Honestly, I think some of them just brought money from their couch cushions.
It was at this young age that I learned the power of vision and the power of laziness.
Those who bought into the vision of a sprawling Christmas party, jumped in and put all the work in. Others, just did enough to participate.
We had a party and I think we only had two dollars to spend on one another, but it was a success.
I don’t remember what I bought, nor do I remember what I got. What I remember, was knocking on doors, doing some work and the feeling of freedom that came with it.
Even at eleven, I understood there was something about making money that brought freedom.
If you are looking to find your vision, look for your freedom or just looking for something more out of life, we should talk.
I’m rooting for you!
