I am always looking for stories that I can share with you where the good guy wins. The good guy in this story is a homeless man. His name is Leo Grand. Leo was noticed by computer programmer Patrick McConologue during his morning commute to work. Patrick walked by Leo for 5 months before finally stopping to make Leo and offer. It was an offer that changed both of their lives.

Patrick's offer to Leo was simple. I will give you $100 cash right now and you can spend it however you want to spend it, or I will teach you how to write code for computers. Leo did not take the easy money. He opted for lessons on how to better his mind and his economic situation. Here is this amazing story.
