Growing Ice Cream
From an email exchange with a friend on what makes successful entrepreneurs:
listen - filter - learn - lead
Not blind obedience.
Work ethic - time management - energy - passion.
And the appropriate mix of dreams and reality, focus and trying different things.
Learning is the big one.
I was speaking with my grandson, Josh while we were eating dinner:
Josh: Grandpa - do you like zucchini?
Me: Of course - it is great.
Josh while squeezing the zucchini from his plate in his hand: you can have mine
And later we were talking about my garden, planting seeds, harvesting etc:
Me: I grow zucchini, lettuce, beets, beans and lots of herbs in my garden. Are you going to have a garden when you grow up?
Me: What are you going to grow?
Josh: Ice Cream
