Yesterday was ridiculously cold.
I decided against driving.
So I got an Uber. The driver looked very tall so I asked him how tall he was.
"6 feet 7. My son is taller." he says
He should play basketball - I suggested like a genius.
"He just went pro. So did my daughter." He proudly tells me.
I want to know more about this man so I probe.
He tells me about his life.
A retired marine who practiced martial arts, he was teaching KungFu at age 19.
He came from generations of good writers. He gets teary eyed as he tells me about a speech he gave. It was at an event honoring his grandfather. His description was so beautiful, I was moved to tears myself.
I told him I was headed to DC to work on my business. He proceeds to advice me about hard work.
In 1989, he took a big risk and bought 3 real estate properties. He rented them out immediately. The homes are almost paid off without spending a dime towards the mortgage.
Each property is worth $750,000 today.
The gentleman was a millionaire.
