No wife and kids, no friends, no “Plan B”…just money. I thought people who said “money can’t buy you happiness” only said it because they were broke.
Turns out I was wrong.
For the next several years I sat on the Board of KPA (I remained the 3rd largest shareholder) and watched two billionaires triple the size of the Company in 1/10th of the time it would have taken me. I was stunned.
These guys were serious businessmen and they weren’t doing it just for the money.
One day I I got the nerve to ask one of them, Pat Welsh, why he stilled worked when he clearly did not need the money.
"It's fun!", he said.
"That's it!", Pat said.
Huh? Is that even possible? Be wealthy and still want to build a business?
THAT was the second everything changed...
