“Difficult takes a day, Impossible takes a week”

To say publicly that I want to build a $100,000,000 company may seem stupid to some, but to me it makes a lot of sense.  Its an opportunity for me to try to do something that I think would be life changing, not only for me but for those who follow me along the process and all of the families that I protect along the way.  After all, I’m just a guy from poor ass East St. Louis.  Despite many thinking that I’m pretty intelligent, I actually failed out of college my freshman year, and ended up making a bachelor’s degree a 10 year experience (My degree from ISU says, May 2006).  So I figure if I can do this, you definitely can make your dreams a reality too.

I know this is probably gonna be the most difficult challenge of my life, so far.  But I’m actually pretty excited about it.  If you are thinking, “This mother fucker is out of his mind,”  I don’t blame you, sometimes I think the same thing.  But that’s when I have to remind myself of all of the odds that I’ve faced in my past, only to see them  overcome.  I also reflect on multi million dollar opportunities that I’ve missed because I gave up too soon, or I’ve let other people talk me out of, like the Sprite Step Off.

It was once said but Don King,”One thing I’ve learned in this business: If you set yourself on fire, everybody in the world will pay to watch you burn.”  I’ve already bought the gas and the matches.

A match has definitely been stuck and I have $100,000,000 worth of tickets to sell.  Until then check out one of my favorite poems below and follow me on Twitter @ronstoryjr

It Couldn’t be Done – Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done,
But he with a chuckle replied
That “maybe it couldn’t,” but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face.  If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that;
At least no one ever has done it”;
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That “cannot be done,” and you’ll do it.
