There are a lot of things as humans that we don’t have control of. One of them is what family we are born into. It is true that irrespective of your family background you can become whatever you want if you are willing to knuckle down and work hard. That and a bit of luck will get you far. But it is also true that some people are given a good head start on things by virtue of being born into influential families. If you are that lucky, it will take carelessness and foolishness of immense proportions to end up a failure in life. That can be said of Tiffany Trump, daughter of US President Donald Trump.

After a deal was closed, Jonathan once recounted how Trump presented him with a copy of his book The Art of the Deal with an inscription “To the greatest real estate lawyer in the world, best wishes, Donald”.
