My father was one of 7 kids in a very poor New England family. He moved to NYC with nothing, renting a place at the YMCA for dollars a day, while working two jobs and going to school at night. I’m inspired by his ambition to make something of himself. He’s a true entreprenaur who never waited for things to happen, and instead created opportunities for himself and others.
What made me think of this was the above video made by Grasshopper. It’s really nicely done and inspiring as well.
