Season 1 Episode 4
Why did I start this blog and the 12GuysTalking YouTube Channel? Why did I start doing Comedy? Was it just to make you laugh? Was it just to teach you how to trade stocks? Was it to share an interesting biographical short story that I made up? The real reason, is for me to be happy. My definition of happiness and the pursuit of happiness has changed over time. Right now, a major component of that definition is knowing that I am doing something productive to change the world in a positive way through my work as an author, financial advisor, and comedian.
I now it sounds corny, but at the basic level, a desire to change the world is what life is about. No matter how hopeless things seem, this desire makes me want to get up in the morning and do great things. At the end of the day, that is what brings happiness to my life. The best way I know how to change the world and make a positive difference in other people’s lives is to raise awareness of social issues I care about through my comedy.

You know those spoiled rich kids from the movies, when they turn 16, their parents get them their first car? Yo, I love my mama, but I gotta tell ya’ll a true story. Look, when I turned 16, my mama said, Dre, now you betta go find a job and start paying our section 8 rent. Fool, you think I gave birth to you for no good reason!? And I took a bus to that job!
(Bus Comedy Routune) Yo homies, if you wanna see the real America, take the bus. I took the bus for 24 years…There was that environmtal bicycle guy. That dude was always really quick to get off, like he was trying to get away. I always be like, what’s the rush bro? Never got a reply. There wasthe alcoholic with his brown bag lunch. I always wondered what that was, and just recently got it. Then you had the pimps & hos, of course the pimps always sat behind the hos…There were the druggies, who sat in the back, the scared yet naive, international student who sat up front by the driver thinking he was safe. Fool, you never safe on the bus. There were the FOB immigrants, skateboarders, crazies, and freaks. There was the driver, and then there was me. Sad thing is that I still feel like I don’t fit in. Even after I got off the bus.
Yo, you see those disheveled bums sittin in libraries from 9 to 4 everyday at the computer? Those are the top 1 percent of penny stock traders. The other 99pct be out chillin on street corners lookin for starting capital.
