What Happened Next?
There a pretty decent series called “Band of Brothers.”
A series about a few guy guys in WWII in Europe near the end.
How their relationships were formed, etc.
An interesting thing about this is the end credits.
A few movies about real stories have these at the end.
Where they talk about what happened to the real life characters after the end of the movie.
The music video for Van Halen’s “Hot For Teacher” does this in a comical way.
But for the characters in Band of Brothers, there was an interesting “after” story that popped up.
These were mostly young, blue collar types.
Not the kind you’d associate with the “entrepreneurial type.”
But that’s what happened to them.
The formed relationships under some horrific conditions.
And when they returned, they returned to the post WWII United States.
Without getting too deep into the economic rabbit hole, the decade or so AFTER the end of WWII in the U.S. was, perhaps, the BEST time ever to start a business.
For one, all the factories in the world had either been destroyed, or hadn’t been created yet.
Two, the United States, being the winner, dictated global economic policy.
And part of that was the Marshall Plan.
Which meant that the U.S. would loan money to Europe to help rebuild.
And they (Europe) took that loaned money, and bought stuff FROM the U.S., since the U.S. was the ONLY place at that time that could build stuff.
This is the U.S. economy BOOMED like crazy for the decade or two after WWII.
What does this mean?
This means those characters in “Band of Brothers,” who built the strongest relationship any non-family members could build, came back to the absolute BEST TIME in human history to start a business.
You have some guys you absolutely trust.
You have massive international demand to buy stuff.
Consequently, those guys in the movie came back and started all kinds of business.
Simple, easy to imagine, blue collar type business.
Commercial laundry services.
Figuring how to buy a bunch of trucks and create a profitable delivery service is WAY easier than trying to out-kill a bunch of Nazis.
So for people living during that time, this was the BEST time to make a ton of money.
Very LITTLE thinking was required.
Show up to school on time.
Do what your teachers tell you.
Graduate like you’re supposed to (from high school!).
Wander around outside until you see a factory.
Apply for a job and BOOM!
One income to support a family living in a nice house in the suburbs.
Today, it’s the absolute OPPOSITE.
Not only is it much, much harder to find your way, there are a KAJILLION distractions.
Massive success IS possible.
It just takes a lot more work that in used to.
Step one is remove all those distractions.
Step two is point your brain toward some kind of ambition.
Step three is to NEVER stop moving forward.
