Think back to your childhood. Did you show any of these signs of an analytical, insatiably curious mind, opportunistic go-getter?
Did you ever buy something purely because you knew you could sell it for more?
Maybe it was a bike, a laptop, a cell phone, or a wristwatch— in any case, you knew there was an immediate opportunity generate value and you jumped on it.
Or maybe it was building elaborate Lego towers and possibly blueprinting them
Did you disrupt the neighbourhood lemonade market with a strawberry lemonade stand?
If you answered yes to any of the above, we would love to hear from you.
