Story Summary

Native Cuban Jimmy West promised his 12-year-old self that he would be a millionaire by his 30th birthday.  

Though at 31, he is not yet quite there. Still, Jimmy, with love and support from Ben White, 30, his partner in life and in business, has found mostly acceptance in his hometown all the while working hard to become an integral part of the community as co-owner of Frisco's Grill & Pub, while also a member of the Chamber of Commerce.
