Watch the new trailer for my book "Raising Eyebrows: A Failed Entrepreneur Finally Gets It Right"
I worked in lots of jobs when I was younger -- as a waiter, a restaurant manager, a parking lot attendant, and more. And then it dawned on me that I didn’t want to work for other people. I wanted to try being my own boss. That decision started me on the entrepreneurial road. During my life, I have started numerous business, most of which failed! But when they failed, I got used to shaking it off and moving on.
Recently I was asked to teach a career day, hour-long class to seniors at my Brooklyn-based high school alma mater, Bishop Loughlin. I agreed to do it, thinking I might inspire some young people to start and operate their own small business, as I myself had done at their age, and to do it responsibly.
