  1. This is a really interesting article. I think he certainly sees something that is probably being ignored by a lot of people in his position. It is one of the things I love about WordPress – it really allows people to build their own future and get out of the minimum wage cycle.

  2. I read this a few weeks back and thought it was interesting as well. FWIW, Nick Hauner was also in Robert Reich’s film, Inequality for All. the film is worth checking out if the subject matter appeals to you.

  3. I love high dollar success stories, always makes me think about what I did wrong. Would it have been different if I were raised in silicon valley? Some of the startup mogus out there are like 20 years old and have billions just from a brilliant idea or a well places market position. thanks for sharing!
