Vivian: Entrepreneurs­ of America-Do you know how Michael Dell started Dell Computer Corporation?
Michael tells the stroy himself on occassion. I happened to be in the auditorium on such an occassion when Michael's parents were sitting on the front row. Michael launched into the story of the dorm room visit from his Mom and Dad when to their dismay there was not even a place to stand or sit down because so many computer parts
were scattered all over the bed and floor. Michael was recalling his father's remarks. "When are you going to get your priorities straight Michael?" The audience laughed hard. We all now know Dell Computers but
Michael at one time seemed like a mis-guided college student. Keep this in mind the next time you feel driven by some hair brained scheme
that just might feel like you are on to something big.
