Inspiration from George Soros: Charman, Soros Fund Management

From the link:

In 2006, Alvin Shuster, former foreign editor of the Los Angeles Times, asked Soros:
"How does one go from an immigrant to a financier? ... When did you realize that you knew how to make money?"

George Soros replied
"Well, I had a variety of jobs and I ended up selling fancy goods on the sea side, souvenir shops, and I thought, that's really not what I was cut out to do. So, I wrote to every managing director in every merchant bank in London, got just one or two replies, and eventually that's how I got a job in a merchant bank." That job was an entry-level position in Singer & Friedlander.
