It was the dream of a young twentyish me (so long ago) to make a statement.
I didn't have a background in or come from this great business oriented family, all I had was the desire. No one understood, not even me, and to this day I cannot explain why a kid with no background in business wanted one of his own. Hell, I didn't even have anyone to get answers from, but that didn't matter because to me I could be rational with myself, or so it seemed. Today I wouldn't advise anyone to do what I did.
Was I confused? Are you kidding, I knew exactly what I was doing. I wanted a business, and no one could tell me that it was something I couldn't have. So when I finally decided to do it, I did it. Something I'll never regret. The year is 1973. I have a good paying job, a nice apartment, a good running car, always in the right places with the right people, and all the girl friends a single guy could want, but that wasn't good enough. You see everyone in my circle had that. I wanted something more, something different.
