Creativity, do You Have it?
It is said that you can’t use up creativity, the more you use, the more you have. Many people, including me aren’t sure what creativity is. It took me a very long time to understand how creative, creating companies really is.
I grew up in the shadow of an older brother who was and still is unbelievably creative. He paints, sculpts, does castings and on and on. He plays almost every musical instrument and sings. He is really amazing, can you tell that I am very proud of my brother? It’s easy to see that I had a lot to live up to. Interestingly, I can’t do any of that except music. I play a few instruments and used to be able to sing.
While he was carving a new jewelry piece from wood and smelting the metal in the fireplace, I was trying to figure out how banks work. My mom took me to the bank to talk to them and open an account. They promised that if I gave them my money, they would give it all back with extra that they called interest. Hmm, they were going to pay me interest.
I couldn’t put my finger on it but it was the beginning of a question. I was only 5 or 6 years old, so thoughts like this took time. I tested my theories on a lot of little kid stuff. To make a long story short over a period of time, I figured out that the reason they were able to pay me interest is because they made more than they had intended to pay me. So, I decided right then, that I would figure out why. I wanted to be paying interest, not earning interest, eventually. That is one of the businesses that I created for myself.
Among the many businesses that I created for myself were a company that loaned money and another one that did hard money loans. I created companies in many unrelated fields; such as fashion, wholesale, retail, manufacturing, agriculture and several service companies.
