“Just like that, just like that…Well, try another pocket”, - my father was advising as I was digging through the pockets of sleeping

convicts while inside the cell of a city prison. Dad loved to act at night - he used to work in a city prison when I was a boy. Now he

is serving time there.

I used to help him do stuff which he said was funny and manly. Visualizing that now I can proudly say that at the age of 7 I was an

expert on fundraising. Sometimes when Dad and I made good money – that usually was on Christmas, when convicts had been visited

by relatives and friends – a more intimate and close friend visited their cave - us.

At these times he would take me to a stripbar and teach how to gulp Scotch while squeezing lemon into my nostrils. This knowledge

helped me soar to unprecedential heights before my classmates – when I started school next year. What is more, it served as a

tremendous confidence builder and triggered leadership development in me. Later on it went to become a crucial factor in my forming

a gang protecting the neighbourhood from the police and social workers.

I liked to get money from the convicts and I never revealed my sources. Dad told me to abstain from speaking too much and always

remain focused on where I wanted to be in life. At the age of 9 I made my first tattoo – a dollar banknote with my face in the


Those times are what influenced me so deeply. When Dad and I, ecstatically sharing profit from the night shift, chuckled silently at

the dumbness and ugliness of the world, I felt loads of perspectives awaiting for me in the future. Young business experience showed

that politicians and economists, having their own night shifts, but more intricate and covert, are no better than me and I can

achieve big time. Sharing my thoughts with father, telling him I wanted more, learning from him that I was a good business partner

became one of the most wonderful father/son moments. That inspired me to go for the new daring and intriguing projects and beat

the best. Since then I`v been a firm believer. And a risk taker, too.

Once I took the risk of buying a gun in broad daylight. Before I tended to buy stuff like that at night, but then I thought that if I

wanted to become a prominent individual, master of my own career – there should be no restraint for me. There you go. Most of the

establishment cohort I saw on the top were those who I once “borrowed” money from in the prison cell. Thank God they don`t

remember it. My methods worked both in politics and economics. Next year you`re gonna see me on the TV – running for presidency.

Give me a bit more time and my tattoo will come to life. Like I said, you don`t need an MBA to become who you want to be.
