From a Fast Company article about a hotel/nightclub developer:
Nazarian's love of business, which he says came from "trying to assimilate," was apparent from an early age. When Sam was about 6 years old, he brought a pamphlet home from the family's Beverly Hills synagogue and attempted to sell it to the housekeeper. She played along and gave him a dollar. His brother David remembers Sam running up to him with the bill in his hand, crying, "'You can make money from anything!"
Charming anecdote about a future go-getter? Or telling anecdote about how one percenters teach their kids to exploit?
