The test of a firstrate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.” +F. Scott Fitzgerald
Imagine someone betting you on a coin flip, 50/50 odds increase your wealth or go broke…
Heads you will make nearly 3 times your present income
Tails you lose your life’s savings
Now imagine the odds have changed.  There is actually a 95% likelihood the coin will be Tails and you’ll lose everything.  Also even if the outcome is Heads, it will consume your existence causing irreversible health issues and severed relationships with those closest to you.  Would you take it?
Consider the 95% failure rate and the determination to not give up in business, it seems less “first-rate intelligence” and far more like madness.

Some of my fondest memories from my formative years were from Boy Scout camps sitting on rough, wooden logs that encircled a crackling fire sharing stories with the other boys. I believe in my heart that it is a human need to be told stories. We crave stories much in the same way we crave love. The work we do at Wilderness Agency is based upon this primal need. We bring together some of the best creative talent from around the world to tell our client’s stories, to share their passion with the world.
