Another year has come and gone and my name is not on the list although it has increased to a record number of 1, 826. One of my son’s favorite athletes is a newbie this year! Terrific! So as long as my name doesn’t show up on Forbes’ Billionaire List, I have to continue to push my “Lickety Stick” everyday on these “make it through another day” consulting / entrepreneurial gigs. Cautiously optimistic and being the dreamer that I am, hopefully, my pen can elevate me next year to produce a NY Times best seller. Landing there will not exactly place me on the billionaire row, but a respectable elevation it will be! A couple of top selling books in tandem with a screenwriter’s stroke of genius with Twentieth Century Fox endorsements turning my pages into movies might do the trick! Wouldn’t that be grand? Until then, it’s back to the grim in the land of work! So with Bill Gates leading the list again with a net worth of $79.2 billion; Carlos Slim Helu at $77.1 billion ; Warren Buffett at $72. 7 billion and Michael Jordan at $1 billion – and since I can’t dribble a basketball with pizazz, I’ll see you at the J.O.B. tomorrow! Aw Shucks…”I wanna be like Mike!”
