"It's grind! Don't ever sleep! Aye, I come from these streets, straight from nothing. I came straight from the streets. I had to bust my ass. My kids inspire me.  White people's kids are inheriting stuff. I want my kids to inherit stuff when I leave here. I done worked hard, I done struggled ever since I had kids. When I leave here, this is my kids. I bust my ass to make sure that it's here, until I leave here. This is theirs. They'll have something to fall back on and I mean that. My kids inspire everything in me. That's my whole goal of getting something, is them. I do whatever I gotta do to survive, to make sure they're okay, whatever it is. I done everything. I done hustled, I did everything.  Save your money. If you save $20 a day, it will add up to something. You got to save your money and you've got to work hard and never give up, to get you something. I tell all my lil cousins that when we was young, there wasn't no entrepreneurs. Nowadays, it's like everybody is doing something. Everybody's selling something. Whether they're selling strawberries, they're selling cookies, they are selling everything. You'd be surprised with just the little things that you know how to do. Take it and run with it and step out on faith. You can come up with something. People have been putting everything that they know how to do to work. You just gotta step out on faith and keep up with it. Dreams can come true. I got the first black owned hair store." - Ms. Bad, Dot, & Dre
