How I bootstrapped my way to wealth and power

Personal — In six days I created the world, on the seventh I rested. Except that it’s been well over a decade and I see no sign of life slowing down.

I grew up a poor boy.

I only possessed at least one major console each generation, had access to excellent tutors who went the extra mile when I got stuck, never went hungry, paid pennies for my advanced degrees, travelled to all major continents except the Americas and the Poles because my living expenses were virtually non-existent, and met amazing people who opened doors for me that would otherwise not be.

Then I became an adult. And again I started with nothing.

Dad only paid for every investment I needed to make to get the ball rolling, despite having savings. He didn’t even get mad when I failed and took responsibility for my failings. I spent two years rebuilding myself from the ground up, and another two obtaining marketable skills as a web-developer looking to create a new world for myself.

Then I went and built myself an empire.

Now I ride a tricked out cloned dinosaur to work because I’m awesome like that. The T-Rex 9000. It has everything you could possibly need! Menacing teeth! A genetically engineered kangaroo pouch on the front to put my stuff in! Spikes on his tail to whack Karens off the road with! And of course a second set of vocal chords to make my boy T-Rex sound like my raging grandmother!

Now everyone wants to be like me.

And I tell ya, it’s within your reach.

You just gotta take responsibility for yourself, work hard, not take any handouts and then one day you too can afford a T-Rex!

If I can do it, why can’t you?
