My dad, who as you know just died last week, always owned his own businesses and often told me that working for yourself is the only way to work. Those messages stuck. I inherited his entrepreneurial spirit.
He even at one time owned a bar. I used to roller skate on the dance floor when the bands were setting up.
I found this photo in my mom's albums. It's dad, in the office of one of his muffler shops. It was taken around 1974.
I pinned it up above my computer, as a motivator and a reminder that I too have what it takes to run my own business.
When I open my tiki bar, I will hang it above my desk in my office.
Of course, I should also thank dad for the tiki influence. He is the one who took me to Hawaii twice when I was little!
