I certainly hope that’s true.
It is true. I only mention one cousin, there were two. Earlier years they were in business together with the same goal - to put their work ethic to use and to make it. They split because of two different personalities. One thought super big/took lots of chances, the other was more conservative. Both ended up wealthy millionaires but one superseded the other in a major way.
Basically, they both ended up being true to who they were. In the past five years they both died. All I can say is - they did it their way and didn’t put limits on themselves but kept within their own comfort zone while stretching it year after year. They didn’t have the ‘instant’ mindset.
