Letter: Hustle for a piece of the Aspen pie
If I were one of the recent Aspen City Council candidates who spoke to both the Aspen Next Generation Advisory Commission and the Aspen Young Professionals Association about career opportunities and making big bucks in Aspen (“Candidates talk about issues for young Aspenites,” The Aspen Times, April 23), I would have told them to stick together like Young Turks.
Also as Young Turks, I’d advised them to exploit late-20th-century and 21st-century business logic and applications to succeed in an environment that is not friendly nor helpful for those who think and grow rich.
Silicon Valley in California; Wall Street in New York; Vail; Jackson, Wyoming; and Los Alamos, New Mexico, encourage young adults to become tyros and hustle to make big bucks. Their leaders foster the thinking, the cooperation, the networking and the business environment to produce new, young business leaders and new chances for new business capital formation. They want more folks to become rich.
So if you want to become rich in the greatest numbers than ever before in Aspen, then use your heads by thinking and acting like Young Turks.
Dare to be Young Turks so your career and money dreams are not deferred and smashed to smithereens like the tens of thousands who came before you in Aspen. Also, this applied to 99.9 percent of the children who grew up in Aspen. They didn’t have the determination, courage, brains and perseverance to make their dreams come true where they boast coming from.
Young Turks, get your piece of the rock. It’s not supposed to be easy, but you can do it.
Become business battle stars.

An entrepreneur’s plea for a rushed commitment from Crown Mountain Park directors on his proposal for a 90,000-square-foot, indoor “sportsplex” should be delayed for proper vetting.
