Middle Initials

People the world over have initials but they are rarely used unless one has reached a level of high net worth and more frequently, achieved super-rich status. As the saying goes, if you have to ask the price you can’t afford it, so if you aren’t sure where the demark lies between comfortable and high net worth…you probably aren’t high net worth, you certainly aren’t super-rich. Financial metrics aside, it is a fair assumption that someone using middle initials, better yet first and middle initials, is living in the upper percentiles of net worth.

Right now, every rich person on Earth has either done it or is planning to use a middle initial. To make friends with rich people, there is no easier way than the rebirth of your own middle initial. Other than sounding like a jackass to your buddies on the softball team there is nothing stopping you from improving your social standing with the simple addition of a single letter. Here are a few random examples from the white pages; Larry Ross becomes Lawrence H. Ross, Mike Banner is now Michael R. Banner and Phil McCracken…well, say it a couple times and you will know there are just some names that can’t be saved. At first glance I think you will agree that Mike and Larry both sound more sophisticated, imagine what it can do for you.

You will undoubtedly see an immediate improvement in almost every aspect of your life. Don’t believe it…do a little product testing at your next social gathering, experiment with new people you meet. Try out the middle initial, replace your first name with an initial; mix it up until you find a combination that works for you. For people that aren’t rich, this game is typically substituted by discovering your stripper name through some combination of your first street name and first pet’s name but this is beneath you and your monied acquaintances. You will find that the addition of an initial improves your self perception, self confidence and lends an air of je ne sais quoi to your introductions. Examples abound throughout the civilized world; think about what it did for George W, John D. Rockefeller and especially Elbert H. Gray. Finally, if it was good enough for Jesus, it sure as H is good enough for you!
