I’ve been meaning to share this story with you for a while – the one where I sold the Melbourne Cricket Ground seating (MCG) for $24.95. I’m pretty proud of it and it was first big success story as an entrepreneur… Click play below to watch the complete story:
Notice there’s a silver lining on every cloud… Not only are Pete and I are still good friends but the lessons shaped me into the entrepreneur I am today.
Perhaps my biggest lesson being, take action now because if you don’t someone else will beat you to the punch.
What have been your biggest entrepreneurial success and/or what have been some of the events that have shaped you? I’d love to hear your story – share your comment below.

Okay, “take action now” but first I really need a good idea. I definitely don’t have an entrepreneurial success story to share yet but I’ll get there.
By the way, I still enjoy hearing about the Pete & Dave story. Who would have thought potential competitors could be such good friends?
I came from a country where entrepreneurship is something most of us start to seriously think about only when we feel our wages are not enough. We have this mentality that the way to a good life is to have a good job, not a good business.
Yours is an inspiring story which I believe more people should learn about.
MJ I couldn’t help but pick up your first statement there. I would never have gone up the path I’m on now if I didn’t feel the economic pinch. In other words, I would have toiled on contentedly in my low wage job if I didn’t have kids to feed.
We just gotta change that thinking, don’t you think? We have to strive for something better just because there is something better.
This is an inspirational story. I have actually seen the bits of wood and certificate you sent out, as well as the history of the MCG. Well worth the $24.95, I must say. Well done!
Don’t have yet an entrepreneurial success story to share but I am currently working on having one soon. 🙂
This will really serve as an inspiration especially for those who are still thinking of the what ifs instead of taking action on their great ideas right away. 🙂
Great story. I think entrepreneurial skills are already in your blood. I remember some classmates/schoolmates doing the same thing. Yes, people here in our country also have that kind of creativity and inkling for business. But I guess having a market (people who will really buy) is what we lack.
