on the original American Idol, he showed he had the skills
of a gifted teacher.
Recently, he appeared on Late Night with Stephen Colbert
and told a funny story that could be used as a
teaching tool for aspiring entrepreneurs…among others.
Earlier in his career, Foxx had met Sean Combs at a party thrown by the recording star and was stunned when Coombs revealed the cost of the party – $1.5 million. So Foxx offered to throw a West Coast party that would rival Combs’ bash and for less cost.
And Foxx later staged a house party for Combs.
Laughter filled the audience as Foxx recalled his
budget party menu. Yet he achieved the goal and impressed
Cost? Foxx spent $208.00
A humorous story with a serious takeaway
Many would-be entrepreneurs never move forward
because of the money, they believe they need.
Unfortunately, for some, not even having large amounts of money solve the problem.
Some would-be entrepreneurs may be inspired by Foxx’s story
to rethink their habits and attitudes about money.
