New to the US and New business Owner!

 

Today, I was in Baltimore to see the Aquarium and an Orioles game. (Oriole beat Tampa Bay 5-4) On my way back to the hotel, I noticed the Taxi driver had an African accent. He was a math teacher in Kenya and came to the US in 1998. He said he had a job teaching in the public schools for 5 years, but he got so tired of students refusing to do work and the school administrators backing them up, that he quit. He started driving a cab. Finally, he said he is his own boss and makes as much money as he needs. He is completing his MS in Computer Engineering and plans to start his own computer networking company.

 

Pretty darn smart!
