Several Things Got Me Started, I Was A Finance Director In The Auto Bus. For 13 Years And Got Burned Out, It's Changing To The Point Were I Don't Care For The Tactic's That Are Being Used To Mess Over People, It Was Just Time To Leave. The Biggest Thing I Guess Was Wanting To Start Own Business And The Passion I Have For Yard Work. Seemed Like The Perfect Fit. On My Days Off From Work My Wife Would Have To Pull Me Out Of The Yard, I Would Just Stay In It From Daylight To Dark, I Love The Out Doors

Frank,

In another post we were just discussing the concept of passion to do something. How does someone learn that or pick that up?

How is it that one person may have more of a passion or drive to succeed in business where another may not? Is this something that is learned or is this something a person summons from within?

How can a person harness that fire if it is not there? Or how can one stoke that fire to make it grow?
