Another guy named Adam, who was only 18, came to the United States on the famous Queen Mary with just a few dollars in his pocket right after World War Two. He was originally from London and life in England was quite hard after the war. Adam had always dreamed of coming to the United States and living a better life. He stayed for a couple of months with one of his distant relatives and worked as a gardener in sunny California, saving all the money he could.
Adam was a very bright and intelligent kid and was eager to go to college, but the money he saved would never have been enough even for one school semester. He kept working really hard until one of his rich clients, the General, noticed what a hardworking kid he was. Adam could not believe his blessing, but he unquestionably took this opportunity and just a few years later graduated from Stanford with honors and became a CPA.
Quite soon he landed a great managerial job with a big company in L. He got married, bought a nice home and had a son. A few years later, the changes and the politics in the company saw him quit his job, and he decided to move out of crowded L. Shortly after, Adam and his friend started a scrap metal company in Phoenix. After being in business for just a few years, they became multi-millionaires.
In their best years they were making 15 million dollars a year. Adam invested most of his money in the stock market and used the rest of it to travel the world. He is retired now and still likes to travel and cook his own gourmet meals from scratch and takes a power walk for an hour every single day. I went for a walk with him once and could hardly keep up with him.
