We have a culture of shaming #success and it's not ok. Being #successful and making #money does not make you a bad person.

The WH is desperate to make any deal they can. This is the same as the ACA and even the Stimulus package that didnt stimulate a pimple on a flys behind.

I am afraid 90% of conservative #media figures are more concerned with getting #famous and making #money than they are with fixing America

I love when #millionaires start a new business venture and say "it's not about making money".

Bragging rights
The best bragging is having others brag about you.
Work
Occupation
I am an Oil & Gas Trader & Financier, Lobbyist, Activist and Philanthropist. I like to push the envelope in everything I undertake. I strongly believe everything is possible hence I never ever surrender. I avoid negative people who emanate negative vibes and have a knack of detecting bullshit and bullshitters a mile away. My life philosophy is very simple: If you are unsure of a course of action, do not attempt it. Timidity is dangerous: Better to enter with boldness. Any mistakes you commit through audacity are easily corrected with more audacity.
Skills
Strategic Advisory, Principal Investments, Oil Trading, Entrepreneurship, Corporate Finance, Private Equity, Venture Capital, and of course... sales. Because it's all and always about selling. You're always selling something and when not selling a product/service, you're selling yourself! ...The mother of all sales.
