In this Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017, photo, former NFL fullback Chris Gronkowski poses with boxes of his product, Ice Shaker, stacked in his garage, in Colleyville, Texas. For business advice, Gronkowski turned to his father, who’d had his own company for 26 years. He helped shore up Gronkowski’s confidence and also gave him some realistic advice.
