It was Chris Gardner's turn to take care of the younger Jr.

He could not find a good job anywhere, he was just frustrated wherever he went,And once upon a time it happened to him to choose to leave home to satisfy his hunger. Chris sometimes slept homeless at the bathroom of Railway-station, sometimes on the sidewalk,there was a time in Gardner's life when he had to sell  his own blood to survive, but he did not give up!

Now Chris started doing small chores and left his son in the care of a gentleman's family because he could not afford to keep the child in the nursery.When he was walking down the street for his job, he saw a big building and saw a lot of people coming in and out. He used to see it every day and think about what was going on inside.he asked a man,"if it was a castle building and what you work on?"he said," I earn $80,000 a month and it's a stock market and I work as a broker here"!!

So Jordan gets excited about this job and decides that this is what we want to learn and Even to do,Chris Gardner applied to the stock market broker agency as an internship candidate and was called for an interview, but a day before the interview, Chris Gardner arrested for failing to pay a penalty for parking a car in the wrong place.

The next day Chris wanted to go to the interview but his clothes were so bad that it would be too late to leave the house and change the clothes, so Chris ran to the interviewer's place and the interviewer kept looking at him.In the interview, Chris Gardner's education and white attire made it almost certain that he could not be selected, but Chris told the interviewer that even though I was not aware of anything, I kept searching and I found the answers to my questions.His answers was so different and he is selected for internship job. Chris goes to work every day and the internship candidate has a target of 100 calls a day. Chris Gardner sets himself a target of 200 calls and even if he drinks water, he will waste time urinating. And as the last day of the 6-month internship dawned, Chris arrived at work wearing new clothes, and the boss complimented Chris that you had put on a nice new shirt today Chris Gardner replied as that was his last day of internship and shading his tears but his Boss offered him to join from next day as working as selected employee. Chris got too happy as all his problems ended that day.Since then, Chris has never looked back and worked day and night for success.Chris speaks to him,"Today is my last day of work here."Within a few months after joining the brokership work employee, Chris started his own Chris Rich brokerage firm, investing $10,000, and set to work.
