This letter is especially important as it summarizes the lessons for you as an entrepreneur from chapters 18 through 21.

Yes, I found this very disturbing, and honestly, it scared me.

If it was the first part of the month there would be several drunk men passed out in the back and I would have to step over them to get to the trash cans.

The reason for this was that on the first of every month the government sent money to all the residents on the Crow reservation 25 miles north of Sheridan. We were the closest town so they would come to spend their money in our stores and bars. Many of the residents for the Crow reservation would drink in the bars and then pass out on the sidewalks and the streets. Fortunately traffic was slow and if one person were to fall in the street, some kind soul would pick them up and put them on the sidewalk.

This activity seemed to end about 15 years later, although I am not sure why.

I was always a little nervous about stepping over our inebriated neighbors from the north. Occasionally one would wake up and snort and I would drop the trash can and run back into the barbershop.

The Mission barbershop was next to the Mission Lounge. The Crow seldom went into that bar but the cowboys frequented it. Most cowboys around Sheridan felt they were a better class than the town folk and would not even speak to us half the time. In the Mission bar they would get into fights with town folk and even each other, throwing bodies and chairs at the wall. I could hear them slamming as the wall of the barbershop shared the wall of the Mission Bar.

Everyone liked my father it seemed. He always did good work, was consistent, persistent, and honest. When he worked he would hum or sometimes whistle as if he was truly enjoying his labor.

I would sometimes wonder why Laramie had not kept all the other contracts he had been fired from. My father kept these few contracts for years and years to come. It did not seem that much harder.

I also wondered why we did not have all the money that Laramie had earned for the time he was in our town. It seemed Laramie was a tycoon, or at least he appeared to be one.

The differences was that although my father did have some entrepreneurial spirit, he was not the one that acquired the contracts. Laramie had done that and handed them to my father.

On the other hand Laramie had lots of entrepreneurial gifts and could generate as many contracts as he wanted, but he lacked the self-discipline to maintain those contracts and watch his money.

I started to observe that to be successful you would need a combination of Laramie and my father. The best qualities to combine were:


1. Willingness to risk it all to start your own business. (Laramie)
2. A positive attitude to go get it done. (Laramie and Dad)
3. An eye to see opportunity . (Laramie)
4. The guts to grab the opportunity. (Laramie)
5. Persistence to get the opportunity. (Laramie)
6. Persistence to perform the duties you promised. (Dad)
7. Known to be honest and full of integrity. (Dad)
8. Provide consistent service. (Dad)
9. A good attitude while performing your duties. (Laramie and Dad)


My family learned to depend on the income from these barbershops as my father made little money at his full time job at the local Boyds supermarket. The income had become very important to us.

But boy oh boy, something big was about to happen to really upset the smooth operation of our cleaning business. Something I have never forgotten.
