Re: I've been rich, now I'm poor, about to become rich again, ask me a question
How rich and how poor?

How did you go from poor to rich and vice versa?

Whats the new plan, or is it just supreme confidence in your ability?

Did you grow up poor or rich?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27627548


Excellent questions.

1) I grew up middle class, son of engineer and teacher parents.
2) I paid my own way through college but ended up dropping out and doing stuff completely unrelated to my degree. Later in life in got my Masters and PhD as a sort of hobby.
3) I have been self-employed since I was 16.
4) I didn't get "rich" until the 1990's during the tech boom.
5) Divorce cost me basically everything. Whatever I had left got embezzled by my ex business partner.
6) Went to work for other people for about 7 years, totally wasting my life and treading water financially.
7) Started an endeavor with a dear friend, and it's about to pay off hugely.

Re: I've been rich, now I'm poor, about to become rich again, ask me a question
Strange I grew up rich I'm talking cooks, maids, rolls royce driven by a german and a butler who would never turn his back to us. One day I was in boarding schools and going on lavish trips next day it was ALL gone. I was a teenager but it taught me something. I can tell whatever you call "rich" taught you nothing. I will never live that life again but I'm good with my jeep my dog and my spouse and I now am "rich" in other ways.

"White privilege" is the liberal religion's version of Original Sin: you are born guilty, and you carry that burden of guilt all your life, and the only way to escape eternal damnation is for white people confess their sin, to bow, kneel and believe the dogma of the Church of Liberalism, genuflect at its altars, honor its saints, fill the collection plate, and never, ever doubt.

Being rich, at this time in my life, is going to mean 2 things:
1) The ability to help people and causes which are in desperate need of assistance.
2) The freedom to focus on #1 and not rot in an office.

And in my experience, there is no magic bullet. Not even sheer skill and total dedication is any guarantee of success. Look at Tesla, poor dude basically invented electricity but died broke and alone.

Bingo. I have no desire for butlers or maids or any of the trappings of wealth.

To me, wealth means two things:
1) Freedom
2) Power

I there are many evil individuals and organizations who I will be focusing #2 on like a death ray from God.
