Mistakes Were Made

Ladies and Gents, we bring you the Investment Banker By Mistake blog. It is already off to a promising start.

Let's keep it clear from the beginning. I am not an investment banker by mistake. Well, not my mistake at least. I always wanted to be an investment banker. Since childhood. Since the time I hadn't learnt to sing Humpty Dumpty, I knew I had to be an investment banker. My mom and dad always encouraged me. They hung pictures of well-known investment bankers on my wall. My scrapbook was full of them. I knew Ponzi years before you would have even thought of a scam. So you see I was destined to be an investment banker.
The mistake was the company's. And a big one at that.
Allow me to explain. I want to be an I-Banker but I don't know shit about anything thing even remotely related to finance. The Arbitrage Pricing Theory, the CAPM, the ratio based valuation, discounted cash flow - big freakin' words. I don't know them and I don't care.

It's done anonymously, so there is a hope that it might be around for awhile. And, of course, there's always a chance it being written by a sixteen-year-old with no friends and a blogspot account.
