Great film, very heart-warming. It gives hope to all of us that we can successfully reach are goals and dreams by working hard.
In the film, Chris Gardner (Will Smith's character) meets a guy driving a ferrari (played by up-and-coming actor Geoff Callan)...and is given some good advice... to become a stockbroker... "...you just need to be good with numbers and people." In turn, Will's character takes the advice to heart... but since he is down on his luck, it won't come easy.
On a side note, I heard that Chris Gardner really did meet a guy in a Ferrari.. and that the advice that he gave him was the same that is in the film... apparently they are still very good friends to this day!
