I haven't seen Paris Hilton on the inquirer lately, for a while there, she was all over the news, and on gossip magazines all the time. She is a perfect example of a born rich girl. I always thought it would be wonderful to be rich, but growing up I was taught that money can't buy happiness, and that life would be bad with it.
I took the advice and kept it inside, but didn't stop dreaming to be rich, or having more. I plunged into different opportunities, and learned different trades. One of those trades was financial investments. I wanted to become a stockbroker, and obtain my Series 7 license. Investing at the time was mostly done through a full brokerage firm. Now, online stock trading is the way people are trading stocks. Research can be done through the internet and information is so much more accessible. There are even software programs that will give you the hot daily stock picks and when to buy or sell. Investments have become more self-service and less dependent on human help.
Once I had finished the course, the job came down to being a sales job and cold calling. Sales and cold calling wasn't my idea of daily work. So I tucked the knowledge away until it calls for attention.
My pursuit of turning dreams into reality continues, and mean while, I have at least enjoyed some things rich people own. The Hilton below is located in San Francisco, very grand and glamorous. I don’t remember ever having bad service at the Hilton yet, and I hope it stays that way. It is one of many great places to go and pretend to be irresponsible.
