When I was about three or four, in a burst of creative energy, I decided to draw a portrait of my dad. On our car. With a rock. When my mom saw it, she was understandably upset and I repeatedly assured her that it would be okay because the drawing would wash off. She asked how on earth I was planning to wash it off. So naturally, I picked up a handful of sand and started walking toward the car. She stopped me just in time, but had to laugh because she knew I was right.
The idea here is that I’ve known how to fix things from a very young age, but my solutions have become much more sophisticated as I’ve grown older. I am thankful that the work that I do at Carlson Capital Management offers me the opportunity to find creative answers to tough problems.
