Nat I appreciate the article and agree with many points, I replied to you on twitter with a video because no context would be lost.

But a few points from me.

-

#1 I didn’t inherit the business from my parents, I worked my tail off for 15 years to help my dad build a company, it was my way of paying back my parents who did so much for me! I left WL to start VM and did it by working out of buddy media’s Confrence room because I had so little, I would argue I started behind many not ahead given the story of my life. I would hope this adds a layer to the story that I appreciate you didn’t know.

-

#2 I speak about self awareness much more than just hustling and I agree with so much of what you’re saying, I’m sorry if I have done a poor job creating enough context but as a very good writer I see, you can appreciate how some stories are read with headlines not the reality.

-

#3 nothing I post is ghost written, I understand it added to your post but I wish you emailed me to ask instead of the cheap shot.

#4 I’ve poked around your stuff, I like it, I wish you nothing but health and happiness.

-

#5 some people just love their process, I wish that for everyone and I will try better to create the nuanced clarity.
