After speaking with a friend, he was made aware that there was a man wanting to sell lots of carpet. At this point Eric and a long time friend of his were headed to Michigan University. They decided to bring the carpet with them and get a license to sell it on the street. From the first day on campus Eric began to make thousands of dollars every month selling carpet on the street.
He was brought a new truck filled with carpet on weekly basis. Eric’s new business was his calling. He was also happy that all the time spent getting started in this business did indeed keep his mind off he bad breakup.
