I agree with you...it's not the size of the boat...it's how much enjoyment it brings to you and your family. My Dad used to tell me to wish in one hand, and crap in the other and see which one fills up first. And I also agree with...I believe it was olderboater...it's important to be in the right place at the right time. Find something that is your passion, and then get even better than you are now....and then learn to network. In these days and times...it's not what you know...it's who you know. If your a people person, honest, and a man of your word...you can accomplish more than you know. People who like you and believe in you want to help you and see you get ahead. I only do business with "nice" people, I can't tell you how many times I've walked away from deals, because as mentioned in this thread, I've encountered people who make a living off of circumventing you for their own gain, or dealing with people who do not have good moral fiber, or good business ethnics. I wish you the best of luck. Someone once said "Success is 90% perspiration, and 10% luck."
