He's found his avocation

I shamelessly copied this from Ted's links over at FundAlarm.

If you think Warren Buffett is getting a little old to manage money, Irving Khan's been doing it for longer than most of the indexes have existed!

Great Story. People like this will die at work, but they will die happy. Good for him. Hmmm, let's see, he found out what he liked to do in 1928, he's still doing it, and he's made it to 100. Must be a message there, somewhere.

Another example that you do not need a college degree to be successful - passion is a lot more important.

Agree! With only an AA, I really don't feel it held me back at all,
although I did at one time. What you need to do (if short on
degrees) is to seek a venue where it does not matter.
There are many. It took me a while to figure this out.

Ok, forget it. I've never been to AA or college. I got nothin'.
