So it all started when I was 13 years old. I was
assigned to cut the yard weekly because my dad had
two jobs and didn’t have time to do this anymore. I
had to cut the yard once a week and would be paid
$10.00. Man-o-man was I excited. Ten bucks to a 13-
year-old in 1989 was a lot of money – I was rich!
Not too long afterwards I noticed something
interesting. Whenever I would cut the grass and then
water it the same week, the grass would grow faster.
BAM! That’s it – I can cut the grass more than
once a week and get more than $10. Oh man, I was
one grass watering kid at that point. I would cut the
yard at the beginning of the week, water it, then cut it
again towards mid-week – so now I’m up to $20.00
per week. YES!
But wait, if I can cut it twice, why not three times a
week? And there you have it, I had a business that
grew three-fold from one customer. At thirteen I
learned that you can grow your business, not by
getting new customers, but by increasing the value of
your current customer. Man, that would come in
handy later down the line.
The next lesson – know your customer’s payment
tolerance. So my dad started looking at me with a
side-eye when he had to pay me $30 a week. Yeah, I
hit his limit!
Fast forward several years and I have had a
number of attempts at owning a business and they all
just didn’t fit me and failed in some way. Thankfully
that didn’t stop me. Failure is OK, it’s hard, but it’s
OK. Why? Because with every misstep, there’s a
One misstep in particular was a desktop publishing
business I started when I was a graduate student. This
was back when people really didn’t know how to use
Microsoft Word and Excel like they do today. I was
pretty good at using those programs, so why not start
a business doing it? Yeah right!
