Despite Government promises to the contrary, things are better when you earn them yourself. I can remember working for my dad every school holiday from the age of 13yrs old and as much as I hated it at the time, looking back now, it helped lay the groundwork for who I am today. It’s one of the advantages of being a business owner, the ability to let your kids see firsthand how the world of money and earning it works.

We packed in 4 taco shops during our 22hours in Mexico and it was a great father and son trip. What made the trip even better was the Gold Mine discovery I made that will save me thousands of dollars and it also was a great illustration for Jason. We purchase an item for our CoolBlue refrigeration units here in California for $25ea. What I discovered during a recon stop at a refrigeration shop in Mexico is that I can purchase the exact same item (made by the same manufacturer in Tennessee, USA) for only $5 in Mexico! So like any good businessman, I purchased all the store had on the shelf (48) and saved $960! As Jason and I were doing the math and smiling over how much money we saved and how many tacos that could buy, we discussed everything from the high cost of doing business in California to Gross and Net profit margins. He was getting an education is business and economics with a real life example that puts him ahead of many in Government these days that put a target on the back of business owners as a pool of never ending source revenue. Of course now that I know a quick trip to Mexico will save me $1000, you can bet I’ll be doing it much more often!
