A self-identified professional risk avoider, the visionary and creator of Yellow Hibiscus Gallery shares his personal story of traditional corporate advancement and the necessity of an entrepreneurial spirit in today's cultural and economic climate.
Excuse Me, But I am Sorry to Tell You that the American Dream Is Dead.
The American Dream is dead! It died from complications due to a severe economic crisis that was worsened by corporate greed, political ineptitude, and societal excess. Unfortunately for a generation that is accustomed to being told that we are the best and brightest that America has ever produced, we are the biggest losers of a bargain that cuts us out of the inheritance of the American Dream.
How did we get here? Society made a deal with us! If we worked hard, sacrificed, and got an expensive degree, we would be richly rewarded with money, power and respect; at the very least, we could expect a decent home in the suburbs, two cars in the garage and a white picket fence. The sky was the limit! Then we graduated into the real world, and realized that for the first time in recent history, our collective generational lives would be worse off than the previous generations'.
