Inspiring Entrepreneurial Spirit
While sitting at an outdoor cafe in the city of Pazardzhik, Bulgaria, waiting for transportation to Velingrad, a boy approached the table with a sheaf of papers in his hands. He was visiting each table in turn and through my translator, I discovered that his name was Ivo and he was 10 years old. He was selling some of his drawings to earn money. I asked how much they were and he replied that I could pay what ever I wanted. My desire to see youth find success through art took over and I could not turn this young man away. Yes, I purchased one of his drawings (the one you see in the photo). He sees the value of his skills and wants to contribute to his success instead of expecting handouts from his parents. I applaud you young Ivo, I wish you all the best in your future. How I wish to find more artistic individuals who will work as hard as Ivo does.
