My business education began when my grandfather had a “shock.”. The doctor told my father that my grandfather could never work again AND, if he lost his business it would kill him. As the oldest son in a Boston Irish Catholic Family, my father role was clear. My father sold our little home in Worcester, Massachusetts and we moved to 24 Belmont Street in Weymouth, Massachusetts. My father took over the family business and my education began. I was 6 or 7 years old.
