yeah i liked the story and read teh book then saw the movie.

it was crazy what the guy went through and surprisingly he was fairly successful before taking the internship.

it seems that many success stories you read are about someone who has taken the "leap" and put themselves and everything on the line.

What struck me about his story was that he accomplished what he did with a baby to care for as well. Whenever I'm tempted to feel tired being a single mom and hustlin a biz, I need to think of him. If he can do it, so can I.

I can because I'm passionate about what I'm doing. I love making connections, so it's what I do and it's paying off for me.

Not sure if I'm making any sense! Some cool things happened today for me- I'll share on another thread!

I love hearing stories like this;I watch the movie almost everyday. I remember I was watching Opra one day Chris G. and Will Smith was on there talking about his life and the movie..Very Very Motivating
