He seems nice enough guy, but really I am not his target market. So, I wrote a reply.
The reply is below the fold.
I hope this missive finds you healthy and hale.
I still don't wanna be buddies. I'm more of a Sigma, the stoic loner, the nomad, or the warrior in the archetypal stories.
I don't like piña coladas
or getting caught in the rain
I'm not much into yoga
(Wife says) I have less than half a brain ...
Jimmy Buffett - If You Like Pina Coladas Lyrics
I like 3-month long solo wilderness kayak expeditions, writing head spinning blog posts, and anything which will make another think.
So, about that gig, let's not and say I did, it would be antonymous of my character, so I'd get some mileage out of it.
I follow the Warren Buffett strategery on investing and invest mostly in indexed mutual funds which are allocated to US large-cap, US mid-cap, US small-cap, and an MSCI EAFE International index fund. I'm boring; I'd rather be kayaking, or rolling the wife than investing. But then the wife is still an 11, so ...
I wish you luck in all your endeavors,
PS: Buffett just won a million dollars betting that Index Mutual Funds would beat Hedge Funds. How cool is that?
1. The Sigma
"What is a Sigma male? ... The most widely held view is that a Sigma Male is an outsider in the male hierarchy, who succeeds despite rejecting the hierarchy itself. A Sigma is the lone wolf, whose quiet, brooding personality is both mysterious and intriguing." The Sigma is generally highly intelligent, which also poses great problems for the lower spectrum Alphas. These Alphas often think they can use Alpha Jedi mind tricks to cause the Sigma to submit, but unless the Alpha is very high IQ, this is not likely. The IQ advantage here falls to the introverted because they are on average much higher IQ than is the extrovert.

3. Generational Archetype
Nomads are the fourth and final archetype. They are children during the “Awakening” periods of cultural chaos. Unlike the overly indulged and protected prophets, nomads go through childhood with minimal supervision and guidance. They learn early in life not to trust society’s basic institutions. They come of age as individualistic pragmatists.
The most recent nomads are Generation X, born in the 1960s and 1970s. Their earliest memories are of faraway war, urban protests, no-fault divorce, and broken homes.
Now entering midlife, Generation X is trying to give its children a better experience. They find success elusive because they distrust large institutions and have no strong connections to public life. They prefer to stay out of the spotlight and trust only themselves. Their story is still unfolding today. Millennials Are Doomed To Face An Existential Crisis That Will Define The Rest Of Their Lives
