An Interview with Gambone

Last updated: 3/8/2013
The Fool:
If you could go back in time and witness one event in history, what would you go back and see?
Gambone:
I'd love to witness the signing of the Constitution. I think it would be amazing to be in that room, with the forefathers of our country, watching them sign the most powerful document in our nation's existence.
The Fool:
What lesson do you wish you’d learned ten years ago?
Gambone:
Oh boy. I wish I'd learned ten years ago that you can't always expect people to do the right thing. I wasted too many years thinking like that. Unfortunately, most people are selfish and rarely do the best they can.
The Fool:
To what extent has your financial success, or lack thereof, been the result of luck versus skill?
Gambone:
Good luck has never been part of my life. I've never been the right guy in the right place at the right time. Some people just seem to have a knack for stepping into a great thing. Not me. I've had to work my butt off for everything I have.
