From Rag To Riches

It’s funny, but for some weird reason, lately I have been reading books about successful people who started with nothing. People who were close to losing everything that they owned, broke and or even homeless. Don’t get me wrong, like I told my shrink a while back, I’m not planning on starting a business anytime soon. It’s just that for some weird reason, I find it fascinating, to learn how some of today’s multi-billion dollar corporations got started in the first place. I just like to learn, the history behind big brand names. How they went from absolutely nothing, to something big.

The one thing that I have noticed about old school entrepreneurs is, that they never set out to become millionaires or even billionaires. They started their companies, just because they wanted to work for themselves, not for someone else. They just wanted to have a successful business and make a living out of it. In other words, a business that would help them pay their bills and live a comfortable life. Which is something that I don’t see in today’s young entrepreneurs. Today, people want to start a business for fame and money, which I think are the wrong reasons to get into any type of business. But what do I know.

I’m Too Old For That Shit

Demotivational Poster - 20

I can say that I truly understand when young kids see others kids do something and they try to imitate them. I can go as far as to say, that I even understand teenagers that do the same, when it comes to following fashion trends. The reason for that is, that I remember that when I got my first job as a young teenager, I use to follow some of the latest fashion trends myself. I, like most kids from the hood, used to spend all of my money on expensive jeans, sneakers and other stuff, especially since my mother wasn’t able to afford them for me.

The whole thing is, that even before I hit my 20’s, I realized that I was just being a brand and or fashion slave. To be honest with you, absolutely no one had to tell me, how stupid it was to be loyal to brands. It just happened that one day, I realized how dumb and stupid I was, for spending my hard-earned cash on something, only because of the brand or because others were wearing it. Hey look! If someone can afford a product and they want to go out and buy it… good for them! The thing is, that I don’t want to hear that same person, bitch and moan about how they can’t pay their bills. I do have to say, that it is sad to see someone around my age camping out in front of a store for days, just to be one of the first to buy a stupid fucking phone. IT’S JUST A FUCKING DAMN PHONE!
