When we graduated from the University of Michigan everyone was heading in different directions.
Andrew went to medical school. Mitch went into finance. Dan went to graduate school.
I got into trading. Jason went to live in Colorado and became the photographer at a popular ski resort for five bucks an hour.
Clearly he wasn’t doing it for the money. He loved skiing. That is all he wanted to do all day, every day.
Haven’t you ever been having so much fun doing something and wished you could do it every day? Think about it …
Jason got up every day and he would ski before and after work. When he wasn’t skiing, he was still on the mountain taking pictures of people who were.
After spending over a year out West he decided he would like to make enough money to ski wherever and whenever he wanted. I was already having some trading success and he asked if I thought he would be good at it.
