Never underestimate what you bring to the table. Years ago, I had no idea what this meant but now I understand about 60% of what this means.
Years ago, I was minding my own business working and living life and an entrepreneur called me with a serious problem. He was trying to expand a $2.4 million business but needed investment capital to make it work. I was 25 had very little money, a lot of hustle and a mind for accounting and finance. I offered my assistance for FREE, worked my full-time job during the day and crazy hours at night. After weeks of reversing engineering the entrepreneur’s business model I built a full financial statement package with a key proposal. Long story short within a month that financial package and proposal was the key selling point that secured a meeting for the entrepreneur to fly to New York City because a major company wanted to buy the business for $10 million. This very big deal was the humble beginning that gave me the confidence to start the TLTurner Group.
