Made Something of Myself

Thanks for the article from Quinton Wynn

If you had known me when I was 16 you would have never guessed that someday I’d be a successful entrepreneur who was running a thriving sportswear company. I was a really bad kid and always getting into trouble so the fact that I’m even here today worrying about things like pricing and bank card processing is a huge testament to how far I’ve come. I had some really great mentoring in my late teens, though, and it turned me right around and after a few business classes and a loan from my ever-faithful dad I got this little business of the ground. Success hasn’t come overnight but there’s been a really positive response to my stuff and I know things are only going to get better from here. I feel like being the boss is my natural comfort zone and I’m glad now that it’s in a positive way rather than a negative! I love having my own store and people to be accountable to on a day to day basis.

I'd work for you Willy. Well if you wanted me to. I know what you mean about the independence of running the show. Good for you.

Have a terrific day. :)
