“The story behind the nickname ‘Dollar Scholar’ is twofold. One, it is a play on words in recognizing Maria Bartiromo’s “Money Honey” nickname that her looks and savvy financial reporting on CNBC got her. Two, and more significantly, it stems from my past. Unlike Key$ha’s dollar sign which has no significance, is based on nothing, has no relevance to her & is completely random, thus is annoying as ____ (fill in the blank, Bristol Palin, Jersey Shore, Spencer Pratt !?) – Dollar $cholar is as relevant and fitting as a nickname can be! From my Tiger Woods card sale at 15 years old for $240,000 to the $1.6 million dollar gambling investment website in High School, all media reported and all involving six figures to seven figures – the name fits and makes sense. See the list HERE. Some were legal, and some were illegal ventures, but the point is that I have found myself involved in 8 financial events at these amount levels, and since most people just don’t go through life getting involved in 1 of these in their lifetimes (let alone by their 20′s) – the $ sign is mine ;p and “Dollar $cholar” is me! I’m talking about middle class & on down individuals – NOT born into money spoiled brats like a Paris Hilton. So that’s the reason it’s my nickname, and that’s the story behind it.” There just seems to be something about Cole that has him continually making headlines & finding himself at the center of attention involving large amounts of money that it does seem like a second nature. Destiny?
It’s become such a part of Cole, that he believe he’s destined to win the Lottery Jackpot someday. California’s SuperLotto or the Mega Millions. “They can check out my winning ticket for fraud – nothing fishy will have gone down It’s just part of the Dollar Scholar time line. The latest in the history of events involving big $. If you don’t believe there is more then just coincidence with all these big money events and myself, then I guess winning the lottery will be the cherry on top, huh! Then it will be pretty obvious if it isn’t already. Until that time, I’m going to give my speeches, film my skits, build my brand character & persona, put out my book, & shoot for a tv show & clothing line! The lottery isn’t an easy way out, I’m not about finding a shortcut. I’m here to prove to the world I can work hard and rise from the ashes. I’m willing to work a full-time 40 hour a week job while I pursue my dreams & ambitions related to Dollar Scholar, but so far, no one wants to give a young felon a chance. Well, nothing respectable for the skills & education I have, but I’d even take $10 an hour right now, & be happy, content, & a harder worker then anyone. So I’ll keep pushing through the obstacles that I caused for myself years ago as a teen until I make it.” ~ Cole
