8. Troublemaker

Now, Klein might be a responsible father of two but like many he went through a rebellious streak as a teenager until his parents set him straight. “I’m sure I tested every boundary there was,” Klein said of himself as a child. “One of my most serious offenses was in 9th grade. My grades had dipped to… well unacceptable lows. I disobeyed his many requests and finally he was forced to take away everything I valued…television, friends, everything outside of school.” He added, “For 3 months, I went to school, came home to do homework, ate and went to bed without any distractions. Sadly, it worked. I went from 67% to a 98% in a quarter and never faltered from then on.”
