Joni Mitchell, the famous singer/songwriter once said "old friends are gold". As time passes I realize how right she is. I made these friends during a period that my balance sheet was upside down and I was technically bankrupt. We all worked at the Learning Company together and in the battle to success formed relationships that are still strong today. Some times we celebrate by going anywhere we want for a weekend. The pursuit of wealth is not about money its about freedom and there is no more noble a cause than that.
