When I was around 8 years old, I told my Dad about this idea I had. I said, “We should make a piece of plastic the shape of a toilet seat, so that when people use a public bathroom, they could pull it out of their wallet, and sit on it”. (LOL …. I was eight years old). When I was about 10 years old, I started a cassette tape fixing business (I just told you my age). At 15, I wanted to open up a Bike shop, but I had no idea how, or where to start.
These are just a few of the many business ideas I had as a kid.
By the time I was 16, and because I didn’t know any better, I took my talents to the streets. (I don’t have to be specific do I?) This choice (or lack of) took me down a long painful road full of ups and downs.
Looking back, I was always a businessman. I just didn’t have anyone around to guide me down the right path.
Could you imagine what I could’ve accomplished if someone put me under the wing and really watered my talents?
Who knows, I could’ve invented Google or something. You laugh? One of the things that I didn’t mention, was the fact that I was writing code way before I turned 15, and way before Google.
Please… that kid?… that street/troubled kid right around you? … all he or she might need, is a little guidance and a big hug.
Shoot, I turned out ok.
I hope you understand me.
