 I've been watching the news observing the enthusiastic reporters. The rain is hammering them, the wind is ripping, and they are about a couple hours away from a supposed 12-foot storm surge. One reporter for instance is standing in Key Largo, which seems to be about 90 miles away from the eye of Irma. Not sure he even knows where he will go once this thing hits.

I guess they have these guys sitting on the bench waiting to get called up and sent into action. We could be witnessing a form of hazing or simply a rite of passage.

This is also apparent in some of the resorts you venture to during holidays, an analogy is the omelet station attendee. That role seems to be the very earliest of many steps towards hotel management, akin to "Hurricane Duty."

It's one thing to step up to the omelet station with that tall white hat, but putting down your savings and competing against some of the shrewdest institutions is quite the challenge.

I have learned that there are no minor leagues to trading.

    I was thinking about this in regards to entrepreneurship in technology as well. Reporting and hotels are localized activities where a news person or hotelier focus on a location to dominate. Similarly maybe as a trader or tech person we have to focus on a niche. Can’t be Facebook or a Robing Hood but maybe there’s a small niche to make a living in. I’m still not sure about this.
