A gift of the latest technology

Entrepreneurship

It appears Dad had already gotten in his pajamas when mom made him pose with me, my cake and the latest technological present for my 11th birthday.

My dad wanted me to be a lawyer or doctor. His logic: I couldn’t get fired and I’d always have a license to practice.

The one thing he insisted was that I’d never become an entrepreneur. Imagine his horror if he knew I launched an agency where clients could hire and fire you instantly. 

Ironic perhaps that my parents gave me a tape recorder for my 11th birthday, sparking my interest in creating content. I never became a broadcast journalist, but I did write for and launch numerous newspapers and produced hundreds of videos. Maybe I should launch a podcast.
