In the 1990’s Brian worked for a Silicon Valley start-up. “Silicon Valley is unlike anywhere else in the world. Everyone has an idea and is either working on it or earning money so that they can work on it in the future”. In the 2000’s he lived in New York City. “The energy is so high you don’t relax for the first year you live there. The city is full of resources and interesting people and truly never sleeps. There is always something going on. Always. If you are thinking about going there, go.” After making a million dollars he lived in Paris, France (see photo). “The artistry, craftsmanship and grandeur that was Paris is still there. Unfortunately it is mostly in museum form, as the current status of Paris is that of a dead beauty. It is certainly not the best place for an entrepreneur. The best place for an entrepreneur is the United States of America”

“What could I do to make a lot of money?” I wondered.
It turned out to be a very good question to ask. It launched him on his way to his million dollars, and landed him inside the world famous Rockefeller Center
