That's the way i used to do it. I gotta do it like this now. How did you deal with the transitioning as as a man mentally from you know hustler to professional without having like a boss or it wasn't like you worked at a job going that transition where you had somebody to be over tapping you. You had to learn. Figure it out on your own. How is that transition for you. Well i was always the kid. That was disciplined So i was always disciplined. Far is waking up on time. Like i was a wreck chaser and i always had a thing with if i'm once once i wake up late my day your shop so i'm always will therefore for about four fifteen in the morning i got myself up by four forty five time. I got the bronze. Didn't it was six o'clock six o'clock. I was going to pose anybody jamal. You can find me anywhere. Brunson six eight am. And i'm not moving and as being a professional i always i always had that mindset of being professional because i had to convince people to give me their cars and their cars would be safe with me at my body shop so i always was able to talk well and express myself to the people who wears though they trust young kids to say. Give me the keys to their car. Sign this paperwork and get it to to the shop Now far is getting into businesses. Cg's i had to learn to with customers. I had to learn to not be so voice for.

Well i've got a volvo. I'll say ma'am or sir. You have volvo comes three different sizes. I don't know where to look then. I'll say something silly like what i used to say. Well if you look on your tire a tire sock then senior blight. You can't say that. In the beginning. I had a bad habit of being a little bit to voice aware as though i had to dumb it down a little bit and and tell myself. Hey i don't care man or woman. Everybody doesn't know where certain things are in your job. That's why they call you because they don't know is your doubt to explain so it took me a low.

I mean they got so many loans and grants that you can do if your credit is good and i learnt that i remember i went to go. ain't about new product x. Y. and z. Said it means nothing. That's a piece of paper. How's your credit. My kids credit at the time was right better than mine. So would to answer your question. Honestly go out on good faith get it going at least so you see your business that about making some money and in the meantime why you got this job to pay the bill that is working for you and by town then a year to your credit should be good. Ain't no excuses. You can go to banks and get alone. That's what i say hell with money. I got the credit. That's the that's the good work with biden especially for those right now. The pandemic's has made unemployed some foreign though. What would you say that personal. Excuse right now. This is the biggest time. Yeah so right now with everything that's going on. This is the time. Actually start investing. If you have the means. And i and i'm not gonna say even if you have the means you talk about as far as physically having money in your bank account or not.

I'm gonna take a payback is small increments and tell their business really gets going and then you can slap down the lump sum. What does that got another loan. People you world makes on debt absolutely. That's why we were going through. We're going through because the world wasn't making no money because it wasn't enough people in debt so now that you've got the pandemic is pitting so many people in debt. You're really not in that. That's what they should bring up with now at this time in home is to get all your dreams together. You're not doing enough when you them. Twelve hundred dollars.
