Would you/could you have done it?

George Atkinson, the founder of the first videostore, just died.

All he did was buy a few videocassettes and a one inch ad in the Los Angeles Times. That and he followed through and persisted and relentlessly changed one multi-billion dollar industry while inventing another.

He didn’t need access to capital or a crystal ball or a fancy network. He just did it.

Could you have done the same thing?
