DALLAS -- Chris Gardner is the New York Times best selling author of The Pursuit of HappYness. The book blew up and was made into a movie starring Will Smith. It's about Gardner's life as a single parent, trying to make it in a dog eat dog world.

“I wanted to become world class at whatever I did with my life," Gardner told NewsFix.

The movie shows how Gardner and his son ended up homeless and took shelter in a public bathroom.  Against the odds, Gardner landed a job as a stock broker and eventually opened his own firm.

After building his business, writing three books, and a blockbuster hit, he's now a motivational speaker. Gardner pumps people to realize their potential. He says more people start companies over the age of 50 than any other age group.

He has a strong message for people waiting to follow their dreams.

“There’s never going to be a perfect time to start your business," he said. "There's no such thing as a perfect time. You can wait on a perfect time for a long time."

The perfect time is now!
