Every day I awake and, like a child on Christmas morning, rush to my computer to see if you have chosen to respond to my thoughtful and heartfelt messages. Despite my sincere disappointment that I have not yet received a response from you, I tell myself that I have made a personal commitment to you and to myself that I would contact you for at least thirty straight days in order to demonstrate my valuable inner qualities of desire, perseverance, and ambition. I commit to you once again, here and now, that I will not cease my efforts until I have convinced you to engage me in a conversation concerning a potential position in your trading group at ——- Financial LLC. As you can see, my word is my bond, and just like a bond it has value.
As I sit here, watching CNBC covering yet again the supposedly nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (“CBO”) economic equality study, I cannot help growing increasingly frustrated at the portrayal of the so-called 1% as somehow undeserving of their position at the top of economic pyramid. These are individuals who have through their own efforts, and yes, perhaps some inherent advantage, nonetheless thrived in an economy where global scale allows economic advantage to accrue to those with the best ideas and those who accept the challenge of constant innovation. And the argument is that the reward for their excellence is additional taxation as well as the tag of social pariah? While I am no member of the so-called 1%, I am striving to crack into that elite company. I am sure that you do not receive emails from hundreds of individuals on a daily basis striving to join you in your profitable enterprise. No, only those with the drive to succeed shall succeed. In that sense, I am the 1%, the 1% willing to work hard enough to inhabit that rarefied air. By now you can surely see my sincere desire to put in the hard work necessary to accomplish these objectives. If I am this passionate about merely securing an interview, please allow yourself to imagine how fervently I would attack the job of finding value in this volatile market. I hope that you will take the opportunity to meet with me so that we might discuss how I might assist in your endeavors in a mutually-beneficial manner.
I look forward to your reply.
