The story of Chris Gardner is one that will always inspire as he came from nothing at all to become a multi-millionaire investor.
Gardner has a very rough one in the 1980 when he had to weather through storm with his toddler son as homeless people.
BBC News reports that though the then young father was on trainee scheme at a stock brokerage, he could not afford any rent, and as a result of that, he would hang around and spend the night wherever they find.
To show how really horrible their lives were, he barely eat nutritional food as he spent most of his money putting his son day care so that he work during the day time.
Gardner never allowed his situation to deter him during the trying time as he became an employee of of Dean Witter Reynolds (DWR) after he was seen as a natural at stock selling.
In 1987, the broker opened his own firm which he named Gardner Rich. As at 2016 according to a BBC News report, he is worth $60 million as he travels around the world motivating and donating to charities.
"I went through pain as a child so my children wouldn't have to. I made a decision as a five-year-old boy that my kids will know who their father is. The rest of my destiny came forward because I made the right choices."
It should be noted that the wealthy investor now uses him most part of the ear, to inspire people with his story.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that the chairman of Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing (IVM), Innocent Ifediaso Chukwuma, asked to meet a boy, Osuolale Farouq, who redesigned the company’s logo.
