Book Review: Billion Dollar Whale
Eating sushi 🍣 off naked people and other excesses 💸
About this book
I picked up Billion Dollar Whale upon my friend Jesse’s recommendation, and also because I remembered going to the naked-girl sushi party mentioned in it.
The book turned out to be a minutely-researched tale and rollicking tale of a $5 billion bank heist using the machinery of modern-day finance. Basically, it answers the question: “What happens if you spent an ungodly amount of money that you don’t really have?”
When I started this newsletter, I envisioned it turning into a proper side hustle, something that would generate income outside my day job.
A year of sporadic entries later, I’ve learned that:
I am very lazy.
I enjoy doing my day job more than any other job I’ve ever held.
Therefore, I decided if that I’m going to do something to make money, it should be doing more things related my day job. So if I’m going to spend time to create content, it should be purely for fun.
That’s why future entries will look more like the one above - off the cuff venting about random topics tangentially related to founder life. Thankfully, I think this is a topic that is filled with juicy nuggets of truth that I can unearth.
Plus, these videos will be a chance for me to play proud dad and showcase my daughter’s incredible video editing skills!
