His name was Jonny. He was born into wealth. His future was explicit, it was assured.
Jonny went to the best schools and got enrolled in the best colleges. He graduated.
He acquired money, built businesses and failed. He got more money, failed and got more – and on and on. His ego grew and grew and grew.
Jonny had his cake, but he wanted more. Hotels, golf courses and a palace on the beach – never enough, always needing more!
He would be King! Then he would have his cake and could eat it too.
