We all have a story, mountains we had to climb and bridges we had to cross to get to where we are now in life. Here is Part 1 of Carl’s Story
- Carl's launch into business Part 1
Hi everyone, Carl Gould here with your #70secondCEO. Just a little over a one minute investment every day for a lifetime of results.
For me, obnoxious started by accident, well, literally by injury and this is the need to get obnoxious. So, there was, it was December of 1985. I was studying accounting and finance at the University of Delaware and my buddies come by in the dorm and say, let's have a pickup tackle football game, which we had done many times, and this would be the last day before the end of this semester in our sophomore year. And he walked over to the infirmary lawn, where we could play football. Teams are chosen, you know, I'm on one side, and now I'm playing defense. And so it was a little cold out. The ground was a little muddy, I'm playing defense and I backpedal. I planted my foot, I turned left and I felt a pop in my knee. And at first, I know, I bend my knee a little bit and I was like, I felt really weird. The odd thing was it didn't hurt right but there was definitely a pop, it popped out, it popped in, didn't feel much about it. The adrenaline of the day was going through me as I'm playing football. And so you know, at the end of that play nothing much I go back to the huddle, get ready for the next play and play a few plays on defense. Now we get the ball.
