In 1939 an article was written about my father who was quoted as saying “the best recipe for success that he has, is to find something you like to do, and do that the best you know how”.
Eddie made the decision to become a comedian very early in his life. Poverty motivated him to leave home at an early age and he became an entertainer. Someone told him he was funny and he was on his way. The career I chose, on the other hand, was motivated by a desire to support myself and my daughter so I would not have to depend on the kindness of the local government. Unfortunately, there are some people who are motivated simply by a need to just survive and not necessarily to succeed. With this blog, I hope to provide inspiration and optimism because I believe a person can do or become anything he and or she chooses.
By the way, that article says, “As a Comedian, He’s Very Funny.”
