It was the early 1940s, right before World War 2. The suburbs of Chicago. There was a kid - we'll call him "Harry."  He was shy, socially awkward, and a loner. But he powered through 20+ years of struggle, setback, rejection and repeated failure to become a multi-millionaire... and an American icon. His life story provides a blueprint for what the road to success really looks like & what it costs to achieve the life you really want. Listen to this episode to find out who he is & what he can teach you.
