Today, I was just reminiscing about when I was 19 years old and starting ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING & Wallcovering. What spurred this on was the fact that my son, Jake (15) was written up today in the local Signal newspaper for his entrepreneurial spirit and creativity. He has started a small business to design and sell skater t-shirts. I’m very proud of him. So, as I started to think back to my beginnings, I started thinking about the tools I used to be successful. Here is a small sample – beginning around 1987-1990.
1. A computer with floppy disks.
2. A Pager
3. My first cell phone
4. My first white truck – a convertible Dodge Dakota (what was I thinking?)
Enjoy and have an Allbright Day!
