Like most people in the industry, when my early ideas of what I wanted to do gravitated towards finance and the stock market, I had visions of working for the big Investment Banks. To be honest, the thought of telling everyone that I worked for a famous bank appealed more than the thought of working for them. Go figure.
I knew one thing however – I had a different view and perspective that was better than the mainstream. Call it insight, vision, whatever. Now I see it as ‘intelligence’. This intelligence led to noticing a variety of various investment opportunities differently and ultimately generating a return.
