Day 2 – Introduction + book recommendation

    To 1 million

    I was never good at introducing myself. My name is Aiden Yoon, a Korean American that immigrated to US at a young age, went to college, and, until recently, very lost. With less than $500, I’ll be starting this journey to 1 million.

    Again, bad at introducing myself. I may update the page if I can think of a better idea, but we shall see.

    This much I knew. As soon as you feel comfortable that’s when It’s time to start over.

     Jerry Weintraub, When I Stop Talking, You’ll Know I’m Dead: Useful Stories from a Persuasive Man

    Now that we got that out of the way, I wanted to share an audiobook that I’ve finished today. It’s called “When I Stop Talking, You’ll Know I’m Dead: Useful Stories from a Persuasive Man by Jerry Weintraub with Rich Cohen and, my favorite part, read by Jerry Weintraub.

    I didn’t think much when picking out this book. I have never heard of the name Jerry Weintraub before, but I liked the subtitle, “Useful Stories from a Persuasive Man.” I liked stories and wanted to be persuasive.

    It contains life stories of Jerry Weintraub and how he was able to work with Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, John Denver and alike, befriend US presidents, and produce Karate Kid and remake of Ocean’s series. What I really liked about the book was his authenticity throughout his life. There’s a part where he meets with a powerful man in Chicago, where the first words exchanged were fuck you for not greeting him properly after being for 3 hours of waiting, which brought them close.
