Terry McAuliffe on Corporations

Democratic nominee for Governor; previously DNC Chair


Started McAuliffe Driveway Maintenance at age 14

There were certain obstacles to starting a business at age 14. Then I saw a guy in front of his house sealing his driveway. He was all sweaty and irritated-looking, putting down a layer of hot tar emulsion liquid, which is dirty, nasty work. I said out loud, "They'll hire a kid to do that."

I hurried home and typed up a letter announcing my new McAuliffe Driveway Maintenance business to all of our neighbors. The next morning I handed those out all over the neighborhood, and by the end of the first day I had 6 jobs.

"McAuliffe Driveway Maintenance," my mother would say every time she answered our phone, like she was in an office.

I took some of the money I made with McAuliffe Driveway Maintenance and invested in a snowblower and started my winter business. I would get up at 4:00 in the morning during the darkest coldest days of winter and blow snow off driveways and sidewalks.
