I missed the first 20 minutes of the show, but I think this is what he starts with:
A pickup truck
A cell phone
$100 in his pocket
Cant contact anyone he knows or tell anyone who he really is
He struggled early. First he took his truck and looked for discarded industrial size tires he was hoping to sell, but no luck. He advertised for work online and got a temp 6 hour job at a tee shirt print shop and made $60 and got a job cleaning a house for $80.
It was St. Patrick's day, so he took the money he had left after getting a motel room for the night (he slept in his truck most nights so far) and went to a retail store and bought a bunch of St Patty trinkets on clearance, since it was St Patty's Day.
He also called the guy that owned the tee shirt shop he worked for and did a JV with him. The billionaire guy stressed the need for networking and wanted the shop owner because he knew the local area.
I think the billionaire made $400+ dollars selling his stuff. He bought St Patty mylar balloons for something like 75 cents, took them to the St Patty celebration, parade, nearby bars and sold them for $5 each. He had other stuff too that he sold. The print shop owner even sold the tee off his back.
What would you do under the same circumstances?
