Sperry Gruppetta- Immigrant, Musician, Drop-out, Millionaire.
My late (business) partner and I were like a married couple, we fought a lot, but, I trusted everything he ever said.
He was a stickler for doing cash flows and worrying about tomorrow. I never really worried. I was more of a entrepreneur not a financier, he was the guy that counted the beans.
I brought home the bacon and let him cook it.
He used to preach to me, “you’ve also got to be a conservative with your money, be very very conservative with your money”. I didn’t listen because he was there as backup.
It’s only when he died, that all of a sudden I thought, he’s totally right, I had no idea, I had no concept of what to actually do because he had always cradled me through.
