And To Think, Some Agencies Aspire To Being Like This …

Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing bad about making money.

Money changes things.

Creates things.

Makes things possible.

However, if you want to build something that good, talented people also want to be a part of, the key is how you make your cash and what you do with it once you’ve got it.

And that is why I still believe the best creativity comes when money is treated as a byproduct of high standards and craft rather than the core motivation.

But then I like Queen and Birkenstocks so what do I know.

An investment banker would have taken the farm.

Yes. Then remortgaged it via some holding company based in a tax free enclave.

This is Donald Trump’s economic strategy, but he doesn’t realize he is the dead donkey.

Comment by George

Yep … and yet his popularity with the idiots is getting stronger rather than weaker. Madness.

Comment by Rob

Maybe a planner could work out why?

Comment by John

He would be a junior investment banker.

“I accumulated a lot of money when I think about it. When you think and you say, now is the time to give back — well, if you’re giving back, you took too much.

I keep thinking of Warren Buffet waking up one day and finding out he has 30 billion dollars more than he thought he had. And he looks and he says, what am I going to do with this? And he says, I’ll give it to someone who really needs this. I’ll give it to Bill Gates. And my guy, who’s my financial advisor in New York, he says, look, you’re a silly guy because you would have 4.1 times more money today if you had made money with money instead of sharing as you go. But I like sharing as you go better.”
