Editor’s note: The Millennials are a generation that are constantly plugged in and moving fast to make their mark on the world. CNN’s Quest Means Business is tracking four of them.

London (CNN) – This week, we say goodbye to our London Millennial, Joe Braidwood.

We have seen his tenacious ambition, and had insight into his fears.

Joe tells CNN's Richard Quest why he feels so driven, and the cost of his achievements.

    ARE YOU ALL BLIND? Kofi Anan's peace plan in Syria NEVER HAD A CHANCE because of the 2 supporting outside players involved! What is the BEST solution to contain this before it spills over unto Lebanon, Turkey and then to Jordan?
    Make a pact with Assad...IF he leaves on HIS terms and allows for free elections by Syrians with EU and UN voting commission oversight AND IF after this agreement, the opposition STILL REFUSES to LAY DOWN THEIR ARMS, then and only then MUST ALL OF TURKEY< LEBANON AND RUSSIA expeditious, completely WIPE OUT THE OPPOSITION under ONE UNILATERAL attack to minimize casualties of innocent victims...otherwise it will lead to FAR WORSE...Just like CANCER...and HOST of a parasitic community...WIPE OUT THE HOST then you WIPE OUT THE CANCEROUS DISEASE...simple

    Please relay this message to Kofi Annan:
    You are wasting EVERYONE'S time and lives by going back and forth, back and forth...
    The SOLUTION seems SOOOO simple but all of you "outside intruders" are making it more complicated and messy than it should be. WHAT WOULD I DO if I were ANNAN?

    GIVE a TIMELINE AND 2 options to choose from:
    1. let the status quo stand...ONLY VICTIMS become more victimized and the contagion from this ongoing flames of fire from so called CIVIL WAR when it really should be called CONSTRUCTED WAR will spill over into Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan, Iran, Egypt and of course, ISRAEL...don't worry, we won't leave out "GOD'S CHOSEN PEOPLE, will we?"
    2. TELL the opposition they have until end of month, July 31 TO LAY DOWN THEIR ARMS and get ready to nominate THEIR CANDIDATE for future elections. IF and WHEN THEY DO THIS, THEN the UN and NATO will present a SIGNED agreement by Assad that he will step down for his party to nominate a new future president/leader of Syria. IF HE DOES NOT HONOR this signed pledge, then BACK TO #1...

    You see, it COULD be so simple if you THINK OF THE WELFARE OF THE PEOPLE of your respective countries instead of THINKING ONLY OF YOURSELVES and preservation of YOUR powers and YOUR wealth – HEAR THAT, Obama and Romney???

    Question of the day for the blogosphere:

    WHY do the people living in the United States facing THE MOST POLARIZED parties in White House AND the Congress with the LOWEST APPROVAL rating in ALL history of the young country AND the MOST divided since the Civil War where BOTH the Congress and the White House NO LONGER SERVE the will nor the good of ALL ITS PEOPLE but rather the SERVE and KOW TOW to the Citizens United and their purse strings AND the lobbysts to give them earmarks, lower corporate rates, quid pro quo crony capitalistic government contracts....WHY DO WE EVEN NEED THESE CLOWNS?
    Think about it...I just had this "lightbulb moment"...IF WE ADAPT the future version of the EU where the Federal REserve will control the united states secured bonds and sovereignty of each state b/c THEY MUST BALANCE THE BUDGET, unlike the Federal Division where THEY NEVER EVEN HAD A BUDGET and so WE ARE IN THE RED for $16 trillions of dollars...And we have the Pentagon for military with the NATO rep. and the UN council to determine WHO and WHEN we go to war and no longer PROVOKING war on behalf of corporations or oil suppliers BUT truly when the PEOPLE are in harms way. And the final arbiter of rules of law is SCOTUS...THINK ABOUT IT...NOT HAVING THESE DYSFUNCTIONAL IDIOTS in the WH and the HILL would save TRILLIONS in wasted money, TRILLIONS in unnecessary wars and being in colonized countries and TRILLIONS in serving the cronies behind Citizens United...BETTER THAN HAVING LAME DUCKS YEAR IN AND YEAR OUT!!!

    I'm sorry...I did not back up my suggestion with concrete evidence to support the theory....so here they are:
    1. Obama spend nearly ALL his term on passing Obamacare...then it landed in SCOTUS to translate it back to reality saying that basically the STATES will determine the Medicare transfer to Medicaid service AND the FED again will BALLOON to another NEW agency worth MORE THAN ESTIMATE $1 trillion...at what savings in healthcare? NO ONE KNOWS and yet only the INSURANCE companies will benefit from this TAX PENALTY for ENFORCED HEALTH COVERAGE!
    2. MEDICARE and SOCIAL SECURITY will become insolvent AND unsustainable b/c THE bipartisan WH and CONGRES WILL NEVER AGREE to balance a nearly $17 trillion budget!
    3. post office is also going bankrupt...what if each state managed it based on need and budget
    4. Dept. of Energy, Dept. of Ed, Dept. of SEC, FTC are INEPT as I have learned trying to GET THEM TO DO THEIR JOB and yet no matter the evidence, no matter the proof, THESE AGENCIES DO NOT WORK FOR THE INDIVIDUAL CITIZEN...SO,

    WAKE UP AMERICA and DEMAND that these idiots in White House and Capitol HILL ALL BE FIRED for wasting our money, DOING NOTHING for the majority of the people and working to benefit THEIR CITIZENS UNITED "FRIENDS"...
    THE WHOLE WORLD is laughing because they SEE this truth except for ALL of us living under this TYRANNY of debt, regulations/laws THAT DO NOT WORK TO SERVE THE PEOPLE!!!

    Ooops...I forgot to provide the MOST important evidence to support the theory that OUR DYSFUNCTIONAL CONGRESS and the WHITE HOUSE do NOT SERVE THE PEOPLE but in reality SERVE THE LOBBYISTS and the FINANCIAL COMMUNITY OF CITIZENS UNITED's 0.05%!
    Evidence 1:
    Financial Crisis of 2008 including the Greek crisis ALL began with the "think tank" of these elites in power to DEFRAUD the Americans of their wealth and DIMINISH the power of the middle class and the lower socioeconomic ladder...how?
    Fannie Mae was used for robo banks and robo mortgages to sub prime mortgage borrowers pushed by lenders on government's dictate TO ENSURE the American Dream of ownership...
    Evidence 2: BIG too big to fail banks like Goldman Sachs and others collected these and made them marketable and tradeable commodities called CDOs, bundled them and tried to sell them at the same time hedge them when the housing bubble started to collapse...those CITIZENS UNITED who had FRIENDS in DC profited from insider info and the financial firms like Band of America's Countrywide was bailed out WITH TAXPAYER'S MONEY...the SAME ONES WHOSE HOUSES GOT DEVALUED by these SAME FINANCIAL MANIPULATORS! So, the rich got richer while the middle class became EXTINCT
    3. meanwhile, b/c the FED was expected to DO SOMETHING to fluff up a drowning economy, they printed, bought bonds & same mortgages and bought debt...free money was EVERYWHERE for those Venture Capitalists and those Private Equity and hedge fund guys to DROWN in cash!
    4. meanwhile, where WERE the FEDERAL AGENCIES to have monitored this SCHEME? Where were the FEDERAL AGENCIES to CATCH Madoff, MF Global, Lehman Brothers, Bear STerns, Gupta and others you will soon learn...
    5. and with Obamacare come government funded FEDERAL STUDENT LOAN PROGRAM to make another bubble similar to the SAME mortgage schemes by FAnnie Mae and Freddie Mac and now it's Sally's turn!
    so, tell me again and justify the existence of those IDIOTS and MUPPETS on the HILL and the WHITE HOUSE controlled by the purse strings of the Koch Brothers, the Warren Buffets, the Bill Gates, and their PLEDGED BROTHERS IN CRIME?
