I don't view my opinions as the right ones; they are just different.
I have degrees in social science, math and physics. Everything but business.
I thought I might like to farm. But I didn't know the economics of it. Teachers basically steered me away from it.
I was raised on a family farm in western Minnesota. So I didn't have the background to prepare me for this business life.
I'm a mathematician by education, but I have this other thing. A gut instinct.
For small businesses trying to figure out how to get big, I would say you are going to have to take some risks. And I think that is what shuts off most people. They are not willing take the risk.
I think it's important to talk to your inner thing. The purpose is to go over the decisions that will affect my life and others. I pray that I don't make my decisions based on ego.
We didn't really feel poor. You don't know that as a kid, but we really didn't have any cash. When machinery broke down, we didn't have money for parts, so we did our best to fix it.
