Would you guys ever take a dead-end job?
What if the salary was good, and there was little work to do?
And how much $ is enough to take this dead-end job?
It's not a hypothetical question. I'm at a family office where the patriarch is an old guy who is super conservative.
We still get inbound deals, evaluate them, present them.
But he's never going to pull the trigger.
He tells us all the time "I don't have to write a cheque."
No deals have been done here in living memory.
And there's no upward mobility.
It's not like I'm going to be promoted upward to family member either.
But broadly speaking, is there a scenario for you monkeys where you might be tempted to - for lifestyle reasons - take a well-paying job at some place where you'd have no upward potential, limited career development opportunity, and no chance to actually do a deal?
