USA Today Article March 8th 2011

Recession inspires people to start own businesses

http://www.usatoday.com/money/perfi/basics/2011-03-07-lifestages07_ST_N.htm

Here's the excerpt:

The perks of working for yourself

In July 2008, Jack D'Alelio was let go from a job he loved. "I decided then that I was never going back to work for anyone else," says D'Alelio, 54, a chemist who had worked for biotech, pharmaceutical and chemical companies.

He launched Nimble Jacks Enterprises, which creates and sells "innovative solutions to everyday problems." One product: the "Magic Toob Lampshade Leveler," enhances the gripping power of a clip-on lampshade. "I haven't made much money... and I've put in a lot of 16-hour days. But this is still the best job I've ever had," he says.

It ain't much but I'll take it!

Derek

That was a great piece of video. I can readily identify with the "journey" part as my foray into entrepreneurship has been quite a ride. You do whatever you have to do to keep moving that rock up the hill and with a little luck, it will one day start gaining momentum on its own!

Jack,
I think everyone can get something from BOB PARSONS ideal's, the Mt disappointment is also a very good point to take note of for Inventors, being ambitious is a very good point made in that video, there is a clear difference like Bob pointed out.

Regards
Derek Pater
