Ending the year on a low (bank) note.*
First, this guy's "passionate dream" has "always been" to "build the world's biggest store to display and sell bank notes to collectors." What, really? So when this guy was a little kid, he dreamed of creating a store consisting of currency under glass that collectors would look at and buy- no wait, the BIGGEST such store? Did he even know that there were such stores, or how big they were? Did he imagine that 99 percent of his income would come from online sales- meaning that people who want to buy currency would be purchasing it based on images on a screen and NOT the actual stuff?
Where did this guy grow up- I've never even seen such a store, but twenty years ago this guy was dreaming of having the biggest one?
Second, I can see foreign currency collecting as being a pretty cool hobby, but only if one actually picks up that currency in the actual country it's used. Otherwise, this looks a lot like sending away for postcards from exotic locations. Kind of pathetic.
Third, I'm sorry, but I find it hard to believe that this guy's "passionate dream" wasn't to eat a McDonald's at least two meals a day, and that he managed to achieve that dream at least five years ago. Maybe you should use some of that money for a good life coach and a gym membership, buddy.
Yes, I went there. I'm not very nice.
*And no, puns are not my thing.
