What's the point of honest, hard work?
Went to an ivy for undergrad/MBA, graduated with honors both times, and have been in finance for 10+ years now. After all this grinding, sleepless nights, perpetual stress, etc., I have a nest egg of about $2.5 million after paying off all my debt, except my mortgage.
Just found out from my parents that a degenerate cousin of mine who is 3 years younger is worth $3-4 million NET of taxes from YOLO bets on GME, Doge, and other memes. Not just him but some of his stoner buddies too.
For context, this guy barely passed high school taking remedial classes, got kicked out of community college, and was working at Sam's Club last time I heard. Now he bought his parents a house and matching Teslas for his entire immediate family. Ironically, he feels like he's in a position to give me "investment advice".
I get that life isn't fair and I'm doing my best not to be jealous, but I'm only human.
Anyone else as lucky as me on here?
