The year was 1976.
An aspiring eBiz Junkie apparently did something right in a school assignment (likely coloring within the lines or something equally as challenging).
When my masterpiece was handed back to me by the teacher, something was different... There, at the top, like a shining beacon of light, was a gold star. Clearly, I'd crushed this assignment.
I ran home, anxious to show my parents the reward I'd received for my obviously amazing talents. As my creation hung proudly on the refrigerator for all the world to see, I had but one motivation - Getting back to school tomorrow to get more stars!
