People around me have started to ask: Why bother any more? Would you be happy working there? You tell me exactly how it is fearlessly. And they don’t want to hear it.
You keep throwing yourself against a brick wall and walk away with bruises on your ego.
Individuals from with in and out tell me “You are the smartest person in the room.” Even the guys, who felt I was trying to steal their jobs, told me “You’re brilliant.”
I was asked yesterday “What kind of education or training did you receive?”
So tempted to answer, I’m like Greek goddess Aphrodite, and I walked out of the clamshell.
My other favorite question is A lot more qualified people out there (Who have college degrees)
Reminds me of quote from the movie Star Trek Generations: Picard tells Kirk, “You have a duty!”
“Don’t lecture me about DUTY. I was out saving the universe while you were still in diapers.” –Kirk
While you guys were in college, I was saving the bank millions of dollars a year and adding directly to the bottom line.
Take that and smoke it.
