 I think the Democrats are vastly under estimating the anger in this country at this administration.

#Power and status should be earned by doing things for #society, being exceptional--not on how much money you have made/taken

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.
