Persistence at 17 - trading a cell phone for a porsche
Great story of a 17 year old kid putting in 2 years of bartering to turn a cell phone into a porsche. If you want to hear a similar tale that kind of started this type of behavior on the internet there's the guy that traded a paperclip for a house.
I love hearing about folks sticking through with things that require some hard work over a long period of time. Because, more often than not, that's how it's going to be.
