Anywhere? Yeah Right.
...if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere...???
Actually, I think that popular shibboleth is factually incorrect.
It's easier to *make it* in the New York Metro area because there's so much more opportunity. Sure in some industries the competition is cutthroat; and sure, those mediocre restaurants in your hometown would be bankrupted out of Manhattan in a New York minute...
But still, I know plenty of Morons in New York who have done really well - economically anyway.
There's just so much darn money and capital floating around. The only secret to success in NY is to get your hands into a pool of it.
So a lot of the people who've allegedly made it here....I submit they'd be hard-pressed to do as well in not just in flyover country, but even in smaller cites.
