A Letter to a Chimp

Dear My Little Chimp,

Slow down, child. I know you are just starting that BB investment banking job and are looking to move into private equity, or you just started that biz dev role and are studying for the GMAT so you can get into B-school, but first, you have a lot of work to do.

You're off on a fun adventure, though it may not seem like it every single day. You're being paid to learn various skills that will continue to make you money and provide a certain level of security for the remainder of your life. You may find some days you're the ball, but other days you're the Louisville Slugger. Some days you're the windshield. Some days you're the bug. Ride the waves.

If you can last through the late hours, challenging personalities, lack of sleep, and self-inflicted poor nutrition (because, let's be real, you can choose to eat healthy foods and drink in moderation), many doors will open to you. And these doors are not limited to suit-wearing jobs in New York City. You're showing the world that you can compete professionally with the big dogs. You're not in triple-A anymore.

The Divorce Fund: Speculating on Your Misery

I have spoken candidly in the past and will gladly do so again, about my misadventures in the world of marriage. It's a world many foolish men enter, but few ever leave financially unscathed. Today, we look at yet another nail in the coffin of this once noble and righteous institution.

One year ago, Stacey Napp founded Balance Point. Not surprisingly, with money from her own divorce settlement. Balance Point is a divorce investment fund. It essentially ponies up its legal services for free (under the guise of a financial investment) and takes a percentage of the winnings, pardon... settlement .

What It Really Means to Be "Alpha"
