Letter to François, 5 years old, future entrepreneur


I like to write to this young man on occasion.e.

As long as I can remember, I wanted to be my boss. Why?

I don't know, my grandfather was an entrepreneur, my father was an entrepreneur, but we didn't really talk about it..

I followed my father when he went to buy his stock from his supplier..

Bébelles at 5, 10 and 15 cents, made in Taiwan. I was always a little traumatized, because the man always asked my father how old his daughter was!e !

The girl was mei  and besides, this man asked me what I wanted to do later.

I was 5 years old and I already knew it..

I always replied: like my father! Really, I didn't really know what my dad was doing, but I was traumatized to answer so it was the easiest answer.ile.

But in 1972, you were unionized or your own boss! I might be young, but I saw the entrepreneurs happy and with ambition and the friends of my parents who were unionized and who came to have a case of beer with us constantly whining.t.

« Bosses that steal the poor world»
against
« Bosses who see opportunities»

It was a half empty glass against a half full glass..

So it was in this environment that the idea of becoming a boss germinated the word entrepreneur was reserved for people in the construction industry.uction].

Then, the final click came around the age of 8. The veterinarian who came to treat the sheep breathed happiness. He would arrive with his cigar, take care of the animals and he wanted to shop. With a buoyant and strong voice, he said to my father: :

« How much for the little boy »

My father constantly replied: We'll talk about it soon »

Heuuuuu, he wants to sell me We weren't rich so it was worryingant .

What I remembered, however, is that he looked happy and left the farm with money.gent.

It was final! I had to be in business..

Happiness and money! Thats it.t.

Some will say: Happiness, money and women!  I'll let you handle this!

Entrepreneurship is not always rosy, far from it. Sometimes the clown doesn't laugh anymore, but entrepreneurs have the ability to quickly get over a bad day as soon as a good day presents itself.nte.

One day we want to sell everything, the other day we want to expand.n.
