You're intelligent, very well educated and ambitious. Moreover, you're young, single and have very few responsibilities in comparison to what you're going to have in a few years time. So why are you wasting your life fucking around in Excel for 18 hours a day and jumping through hoops for your MD?
This thought popped into my head earlier this week and refuses to leave. I think I've been kidding myself by saying that I need to spend time 'learning some real skills' or 'I'll wait until I'm older and wiser'. (It's also been inspired by a Banker who was telling me how he'd recently advised on a Secondary buy-out whereby the original founder had been allowed to take out £20m)
What's stopping us? Fear? How many times are we going to say to ourselves "I'll just wait until my Bonus comes in and then I'll do it"?
What was Patrick's (WSO) turning point?
