The Piece

“An Ode To Those Who Wander” was a piece written to express pure happiness that even after several years of professional downfalls and disappointments, the underdogs could celebrate even with a rare success. The writer expressed how he was not taken to be good enough for analyst material at Liberty Mutual.

After he was pushed out of Liberty, the writer came into a professional wondering time. He was only able to land two interviews in institutions with fixed income. After several struggles, the writer found Seeking Alpha platform where there is no past education required or even buy side and sell side experience.

Sahm’s Comments

The writer got a chance one weekend to chat with Sahm. During this conversation the writer was able to gather some facts about Adrangi and his interest in the piece. Sahm’s had been keenly tracking the writer’s work on GNC.

Sahm’s networking and hustle landed him an internship opportunity at Merill Lynch’s credit desk. Due to his hard working nature he was added three more years to work there. In June 2015, Sahm decided to leave Wall Street given the high cost of living in NYC, hours and the belief that the field had changed. Like the writer, he still likes capitalizing and generates a lot of his present revenue from nice securities choices from the wealth returns he makes from his seed money he made on Wall Street.
