Can luck dictate one's success in business? Absolutely. But looking at another's success or luck does not mean that you lose something in exchange. Luck is something I fully believe can be CREATED.

Capitalism is a function of money - the economy. It’s all about serving other people. What you can trade, what you can offer or sell, what problem you can solve for a certain price.
