If you watched Moziah Bridges' brief segment during the NBA draft Thursday night, there's a good chance you immediately went to a mirror and started asking yourself some hard questions.
Of course, this is the only natural reaction to this young man's story. A 13-year-old who started a bow tie business at the age of nine, Mo has since built a $200,000-a-year apparel company specializing in handmade neckties.
All the bow ties worn by players at the 2015 NBA draft? Those are Mo's. He designed them, and it's possible the young Shark Tank entrepreneur might've even made them himself.
Mo gave ESPN an interview between draft announcements. If his resume doesn't make you feel vaguely inadequate, you're not paying attention.
But once we got past our threatened sense of self-worth, Mo became the MVP:
Here's Mo's story, as told on his business' professionally manicured website:
Mo's Bows is a company I started in Memphis, TN in 2011 when I was just 9 years old. I couldn't find fun and cool bow ties, so one day I decided to use my Granny's scrap fabric to make and sell my own. I like to wear bow ties because they make me look good and feel good. Designing a colorful bow tie is just part of my vision to make the world a fun and happier place.
It started with grandma's fabric, now we're here. Go forth and flourish, young man.
