Statistics have show Chicago to be just as windy, more or less, as NYC and Boston.
This is very interesting, I guess I never looked into it. I have however, spent plenty of days on Lake Erie, and it gets damned windy sometimes.

Even if your companies were tiny, they should have AT LEAST netted 100k each. Any smaller I have no idea what the hell they were.
I work on Wall Street (not back/mid office). I dont know why you would want to switch in over starting companies.
Firstly, I don't take kindly to being called a liar. You are making assumptions based upon incomplete data, and that is a fools folly; I had 100% scholarship to a FL school vs paying out of state tuition at an Ivy liberal arts school. No business program at all. At the time I was considering journalism and I applied with my best friend from high school. I got in and he didn't. It's none of your business but my companies were smaller than 100k, and I only sold one of them; I let the other dissolve.
I want to relocate in NYC because 1. I am tired of Florida and feel like I am wasting my life here, and 2. I need money to invest in my current startup. That's all, no magic here. I like the idea of working for a consulting or finance company in particular because I can apply what I learn to businesses.
