2 words that changed his life

Joel-Maus-2.jpg

In 1987, an accountant for his management firm called him in for a meeting and dropped a bombshell, telling him, “You’re broke.”

“What he really meant was, ‘You’ve got a lot of assets, but you don’t have any money,’” Oates told Salon.

He says now that “as dismal and depressing as that moment was, it was the best thing that ever happened to me.” More at Salon.

I like the simplicity of the story and the fact that it feels so genuine.
