I made friends with a young guy from Bangladesh. He says he wants to work for me for free in exchange for knowlege.
I told him, "OK.." and I made him do some data entry garbage jobs for me. then he asked me, "when are you going to teach me about finance?" ==== and I told him, "You just learned your first lesson! The world can be cruel. You chose to work for free, and you didn't get anything in return! NEVER EVER DO IT AGAIN!.. and that's LESSON 1!"
and he finally got it. that was 5 years ago ---- Now he's a big executive at big bank in the world's largest financial district.
by the way.. me and my friend from bangladesh.. still good friends.
I've always been loyal -- but he told me, "I'll do anything you ask of me.. you're my teacher -- my mentor.. I'll do anything." and you know what I said? "Kid --- stop blowing smoke up my ass! what do you want? I don't need your f*cking praise kid.. You ain't doing me any favors!"
THE TRUTH IS.. I never taught him anything.. I just said.. "you know --- this a thing called bittorrent." and there was probably 100 gigabytes worth of EBOOKS from WILEY PUBLISHING on PIRATE BAY... and I gave him the link and told him to download the big RAR files. and I said..
"KID --- DOWNLOAD IT AND READ EVERY BOOK... and i'll test you after.."
