Jack Terry has been a dance studio owner, a printer, a lawyer, a restaurant manager, a golf driving range owner, an accountant, a stock broker, has worked in construction, been a time share salesman and finally a male dance host on a cruise ship.
Over the past six decades, entrepreneur Jack Terry has been a lot of things, except one - bored.
"I've had an amazing life and people always told me to write a book, so I finally did it," Terry said in an interview with CBS 5 News. He credits a writing class from Scottsdale Community College and the urging of his friends for finally making his book a reality. Terry has rolled his life's adventures into a new, how-to book titled Employ Yourself Now- Enjoy Yourself Now - 7 Steps to Start and Operate a Business in Less Than 90 Days.
The energetic 83-year-old says he decided now was the perfect time to write the step-by-step handbook regardless of the uncertainty of the economy and the politics in Washington.
"The business climate is certainly different now than at any other time, and I believe my experience in running over 20 different businesses gives me a unique perspective to help people," said Terry.
And the one timeless trait that people need to start their own business in these tough times?
"For me it was always a strong sense of curiosity," Terry said. "A lot of opportunities come by and people let them pass if they are not curious enough to explore their dreams."
