Creating useful people

The first one I picked to listen to was Deepak Tailor. Love his entrepreneurial spirit! I can relate as I used to sell 15 cent combs to cowboys at my mother's horse shows when I was 10. As well, apples from our trees. Not as big an operation as Deepak, as we didn't have Ebay back in the 80's.
