From Craig Ballantyne’s awesome Early to Rise newsletter this morning:
“Success for me,” John McAfee explained in Fast Company in 2007, “is can you wake up in the morning and feel like a twelve year old?”
That was before he lost 95% of his net worth. At the time he said that, as Robert Frank explains in his book, The High-Beta Rich, McAfee was living through a second adolescence, spending rampantly on grown-up toys and making poor investments. A year later, this definition of success had helped destroy his $100 million fortune and left his net worth at just a few million dollars.
Now, I really do love Craig’s stuff, and read it daily, but what???
“Just a few million dollars”?
If that’s failure, please let me be an utter one!!
