So tomorrow is my last day at the CFO Group, and it’ll be a long long time before I ever see Reno again. I think I made the right choice, choosing to go trek the world.
I can’t see myself counting other people’s money my entire life. And that’s what accounting is, break the word accounting. I’ll use other people’s money, but I’m tired of counting it.
Truth be told, I never bought the narrative, go to school, get good grades, go to college, work a 9-5 and retire. I’ve been sceptical since I was in high school. And its only now that I have the courage to go against the current.
Of course I have not forgotten about keeping an eye on my long term well being. I accumulated a substantial stack of silver since I was 16. I think its an undervalued asset, and of course only time will tell. The numbers are there and I think its in silver’s favor, but I’m not going to sit around waiting as my life goes by. I’m going to take a financial hit for refusing to go the conventional route initially. I know that. But I think the long term implications will be different. The sense of satisfaction, the skills learned.acquired and the the people met will be priceless.
I’m going to build my own legacy, and no legacy worthy of my personal standards can be built by being anapentage to someone else.
