“Seven years after my arrival in Toronto I started my own business. The net profit of the first two weeks was six thousand dollars. I photocopied the check before depositing it in the bank and framed it. I may still have it in the basement storage area of one of my apartments. It took me two times seven, that is, fourteen years for me to build the most modern light bulb manufacturing plant of Romania. My company also got contracts for the reconstruction of Bucharest’s and other major Romanian cities’ streetlights,” writes Zoltan Boszormenyi on his website.
