You guys? Peasants in comparison.
Ground breaking predictive modeling that gave my employer a material advantage over competitors by incorporating actuarial science into marketing methodology.

Also, consistently content with my life, my family, and my marriage, with plenty of free time to do things I enjoy, a solid social life, and no absurd "pressures" to keep up appearances so that a bunch of elite pricks won't boot me out of the rich snobs club...

Being good in Podunk is not the same as being good in NYC/London.

Just an FYI.

You have to compete with the best to be the best.
