I have 0 to 1 real life friends who i can discuss business with which is also one of the reasons why I'm on WSO. Lots of cool folks here who can discuss the life of Marc Rich to how to go about a tender offer for shares of a public company.
There have been so many times when I've been on the explaining end of monetary policy or talking about how the stock market works and the subject of money making in general. My friends aren't morons, they're all bright people but in a certain kind of way. One of my friends can ace an actuarial exam or a calculus exam but he doesn't even put money in the stock market -_-.
there've been so many times when some finance news crops up and piques my interest and i've 0 people to talk to about it.
being a business/finance nerd can be lonely at times , how about you guys.
