So I think my story is probably started when my grandfather went out to shoot a chicken hawk, tripped over a wire and blew up his right arm right at the shoulder. And how that affected me was, he had one son and Eugene, my father. And he expected Eugene to do everything for him because he only had one arm. So my father was tasked with working probably 18 hours a day since he was a young child on the chicken farm. And he got conditioned to basically be a complete workaholic. And lucky for me, my father, another entrepreneur decided to leave when he was 18 and start another entrepreneurial venture, which was a small dairy farm. And he was equipped with this incredible workaholic capability. And you know, in those days when you had a small farmer, basically everything so he really could do everything, you know, he could do. He built his barns, he did his plumbing, his electricity, he fixed his tractors, he put he did everything. Fortunately, or, unfortunately, for me, he only had one son, me. And you know, he only thing you really knew was to, you know, work constantly, all day long. He did teach me how to work smart, by not wasting time, but I was really had to sort of fit in his shoes of being this constant workaholic. So he was probably not consciously, but just an amazing teacher, because he did several things, you know, I got the workaholic, which is no success comes without hard work.
