He's an Evil Genius

How many times have you said to yourself,
I should start my own business?

In my mind I have opened restaurants, a bakery 
and a lawn care company.
( I once owned a truck )

The reality is I'm still leaving tips at restaurants,
buying my own danish
and cutting my own grass.
It takes a special kind of commitment
to start your own company.

Our friend Luke is committed and it's paying off.

Luke was just another of the countless people in the world who have said,
"I'd like to start my own beer company."
The difference here is, he actually did just that. 

Evil Genius Beer Company is off and running. 
And this Sunday Luke will be running into the MSNBC studios to participate
in an interview on Your Business
I mean seriously. How cool is that?

My family has known Luke and his family basically his whole life.
I get a kick out of the fact that I used to babysit him.
I remember cutting up his tofu into bite sized toddler manageable portions.
Now Luke explains to me the proper portions of malts to hops
to make the perfect craft beer.

My daughter and I were recently talking about
Luke's upcoming MSNBC interview.
We are both of the opinion that this may be another beginning  for him.

We know he'll "nail" the interview.
You could say Luke is a bit outgoing and confident.
Actually he makes "The Donald" seem shy.

We won't be surprised
if Luke ends up being a business corespondent
and a regular on MSNBC.

If you're thirsty pick up a case of Evil Genius.
Want to hear a success story.

Great name for a craft beer! I wish him all the success in the world but it sounds like he is well on his way!

Love stories like this one. I came from a family of entrepreneurs and am always dreaming of business ideas. I do have my little business online, but wished I could have started when I was younger. New business really take the energy of the younger generations. I wish him well and it does sound like he is on his way.
