Lessons Learned

That 'aha, I am an entrepreneur' moment for me was when I was about twelve years old. I wrote my first business plan, I just did not know that was what you called it. I wanted to plant grapevines in the backyard and I needed a couple of 100 bucks from my dad to do it. I wanted him to fork out the money, and yes, he bought it. He was delighted and I could not figure out at the time why he was. Now I understand.

As an entrepreneur there are ideas one needs to get comfortable with in order to do your best. Those ideas are about dealing with fear, and taking action; as well as understanding the relationship between your business--the market, and other people. It is about having an intellectual curiosity about subject matters that will affect your day to day. It is about a need and desire to always improve, learn and change.

When dealing with setbacks, it is like the Sinatra song--you dust yourself off, you pick yourself up, and you start over again--and THAT is what you do.

Part of the wonderful thing of American culture, and the world that we live in today, is reinvention. If you are willing to try, and work hard, the setbacks do not matter. You can do whatever you want.

(When asked if he could go back in time and give some advice to his 20-year-old self, Korman responded) Be more cautious, be more considerate, and remember that you need to always do your absolute best, but above all, be patient.
