My goal was to help the entrepreneurs develop the mental habits that would allow them to do that. Judging by what some of them have accomplished, I have to believe that my efforts were not entirely in vain — which is not to take anything away from the people themselves. Building their businesses has been their doing, not mine.
I should note, moreover, that you don’t have to have a mentor like me, or a father like mine, to acquire the mental habits needed to “handle whatever comes up.” Many of my own habits I’ve developed the old- fashioned way — by making mistakes, falling on my face, picking myself up, and figuring out how not to do it again. But you know what they say: A smart person learns from his or her mistakes. A wise person learns from other people’s mistakes. I guess that makes me smart. I hope that, through my experience, I can help you to be wise.
