The Assetman

You are a good man-- and I think you are right in support of your daughter.

Catilin is right-- Margot needs to take this chance because it's the best time in her life to do it. I think she'll do well.

I took the biggest chance of my career two years ago-- and it didn't turn out well at all. I failed, both professionally and financially. But I have very little to regret becuase (a) I landed on my feet and am in a much better position to advance my career; and (b) I created a blog that has allowed me to talk to other bloggers with similar interests.

Anyway, best of luck to Margot in her new venture!


Sometimes we have to take calculated risks to get where we want to go, and most of the time it's easier to do when we are younger. I often think I played it TOO safe in my younger years despite the risks I DID choose to take. Sounds like a good and interesting choice for her...brava!
