Why Ted Turner's Father Paid Him 10 Cents An Hour To Teach Him The Importance Of Honour, Integrity And Discipline!!!
By Jatinder Singh, Associate Partner & Mentorship Coach, Lighthouse International
Entrepreneur and philanthropist Ted Turner pioneered the 24-hour news industry when he set up the television channel CNN. He became a billionaire in the process and now is a major advocate of protecting the environment through his philanthropic initiatives.
In this video, he discusses why his father taught him the importance of integrity and discipline and how he helped him grow and develop as a person. This included putting him through hardship - such as paying him 10 cents an hour (when the minimum wage was 85 cents) and he charged him rent!! Ted Turner demonstrates, that by learning to deal emotionally with challenges such as these as a youngster, he was then able to do this as an adult. He also explains how his integrity became a source of personal honour as a result.

I am passionate about fulfilling my potential in life and helping others to do the same, so that we can all make a difference to society. I’ve learnt that fulfilment comes from pursuing a goal that is greater than my own ambitions and having a real purpose.
I originally qualified as a Chartered Accountant but it was helping people through entrepreneurship and career development, rather than doing the numbers when I really came started to enjoy myself. I have found that we aren’t taught as youngsters how to deal with challenging life situations and so there are many people that on the “outside” are fine, but “inside” really struggle.
