challenging but quickly found out that he could make a living out at it. In 1999, Ty moved from New York to Virginia. Here again, the question of what to do gave him some sleepless nights. A friend of his suggested that if he were so good at selling intangible
products, he might be super good at selling tangible products like cars.
So, in 2000, Ty started working for Koons, and it became his first experience in the automotive business. He is one of the few septuagenarians
