Starting My Favorite Things

Produced by

Jackson Lee wrote in to tell his story. It's not just a story about learning to navigate a business in this economy: it's a story about learning to be a businessman. Jackson dropped out of college and became a bike messenger. He still has a day job as a bike mechanic. But in April, he took a gamble. He opened a vinyl record store in his hometown of Greensboro, N.C. The space also offers bike repairs in the back. Jackson talks with Dick about what he learned in his first few months of entrepreneurship.


Rock and Roll performed by The Velvet Underground for the album Loaded.
