I wish I was taking something. I'm a successful capitalist, I bought in all these years and accumulated over $10m in private assets before I was 30.
I sold my shares in my company to "start something new" then I realized everyone was too caught up in trying to just survive that no one was willing to work for anything that wasn't a long-term company with 401k and crap.
