As I was taking my daughter to school today for her first day in 6th grade, I couldn’t help but think about the differences between where my family was financially when I was her age compared to where we are now. There are a lot of similarities but there are some pretty stark differences as well. This is what inspired me to jump on the mic and share this story with you today.

To tell the story, you have to know that I grew up in a lower-middle class family on a ranch in Ohio. My father went the traditional route, attended Ohio State University, got his masters degree and started climbing the corporate ladder at Sherwin-Williams.

Things were very traditional at home in our Irish Catholic family. My parents never cursed around us, we ate our meals together and talked about how our days went—at least they tried to get us to talk about our days.Things were fine until the 80’s when my father lost his job at Sherwin-Williams. And when I later found out they had declared bankruptcy it made me realize how proud I was of my father—he never told us and we never had to worry about money.

Dad’s bankruptcy forced him into entrepreneurship, shifted his mindset and ultimately allowed him to achieve tremendous personal and financial success.

There are so many similarities between our lives, and how we’ve achieved the success and freedom that we always wanted, and yet, it was very different when my father was my age and when I was my daughter’s age.

In this episode, I’m going to share some very personal experiences and talk about what I learned from my Dad that helped me succeed in my own entrepreneurial life.
