4:44 of Fame

In 1968 Andy Warhol stated “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.”  This statement seems less prophetic in the Internet age combined with reality shows dominating prime time television than it did at the time. Yet it remains a goal for many.

I recently used up 4 minutes and 44 seconds of my 15 minutes in an Advisor TV interview discussing Employee Stock Ownership Pans (ESOPs).

I’m fairly confident that this would not meet Warhol’s definition of world-famous but I have 10 minutes and 16 seconds left. Stay tuned, I plan to use every second.

In addition to blogging here, I also tweet regularly about topics of interest to ESOPs. Click to follow me on Twitter- @jlripperger .
