Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

wiki snack- Steve Jobs: bastard/college dropout. Picks fights/has good design sense.

According to Wikipedia:

- Jobs is currently the Walt Disney Company's largest shareholder.
- One week after birth, Jobs was put up for adoption by his unmarried mother.
- In 1972, Jobs lasted one semester at Reed College in Portland Oregon.
- Jobs had a public war of words with Dell Computer CEO Michael Dell, starting when Jobs first criticized Dell for making "un-innovative beige boxes."
- When Jobs spoke at the Stanford Commencement, he spoke frankly about his opinions on entrepreneurship, work, and life: "You’ve got to find what you love." ( the video at and the text can be found here)
"Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life."
