He'd go on to open up a few businesses in the Tulsa area before settling on a car lot he calls Batman's Auto Sales. Now he's running for City Council in Tulsa as a Democrat and has made it past a primary into the general election.


He's also a huge giver, as the video above shows. He donated all of his gasoline profits at a station he owned to the Salvation Army for a month.

His pillars for success are simple:

1. Marry the right person. This one decision will determine 75% of your happiness or misery.

2. Work at something you enjoy and that's worth of your time and talent.

3. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

4. Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.

5. Be forgiving of yourself and others.

6. Be Generous.

7. Have a grateful heart.

8. Persistence – Persistence – Persistence.

9. Discipline yourself to save money on even the most modest salary!

Despite his funny name, Batman is serious about his work. Even if people have been vandalizing his signs.

Don't be a joker, vote Batman!
