 I read this article a while back, that said that Microsoft employs more millionaire
secretary’s that any other company in the world. They took stock options over
Christmas bonuses. It was a good move. I remember there was this picture, of one
of the groundskeepers next to his Ferrari. Blew my mind. you see shit like that,
and it just plants seeds, makes you think its possible, even easy. And then you
turn on the TV, and there’s just more of it. The $87 Million lottery winner, that
kid actor that just made 20 million of his last movie, that internet stock that
shot through the roof, you could have made millions if you had just gotten in
early, and that’s exactly what I wanted to do: get in. I didn’t want to be an
innovator any more, i just wanted to make the quick and easy buck, i just wanted
in. The Notorious BIG said it best: “Either you’re slingin’ crack-rock, or you’ve
got a wicked jump-shot.” Nobody wants to work for it anymore. There’s no honor
in taking that after school job at Mickey Dee’s, honor’s in the dollar, kid. So
I went the white boy way of slinging crack-rock: I became a stock broker

These days we’re living in, are dominated by the “I know what I want and I want
it now” attitude. It is a time of constant rush perfectly described by fast food
and quick fixes ; a time of self before everything and “Me ! Me ! Me !”. A rat
race of the lowest kind. Keeping up has never seemed more important, a mentality
of getting rich quick at any cost.
