What I wanted as A Child and WHY BUSINESSES FAIL

I remember sometimes in 2003, I had a conversation that was more like a deal with my best friend. He wanted to be an engineer and I wanted to be a doctor. We agreed he was going to build all my houses and I’ll be his family doctor.

Consistent motion is the opposite of death, and death is kin to poverty.
