I don't have much time to read these days...
But I am always happy to share what's on my personal bookshelf, what others have sent me to review, and what I have checked out from the library for research, etc.
I love books and I love getting the opportunity to be mentored by some of the best minds in business for little or nothing. What would it cost to get into the mind of Donald Trump in real life? THOUSANDS of dollars, if it could be done at all.
But for less than a week's worth of lattes, you can open one of Trump's or David Maister's or Katherine Vesennes' books and learn the secrets, tips, and strategies that made them successful.
There really isn't much original thought left in the world these days. What there IS is original application of time-tested strategies; the basics made better. Sometimes our success hinges on our ability to assimilate the ideas of those who have gone before, integrate them into our own value system, and slather on a heap of good old-fashioned common sense.
DO YOU LIVE IN AN NFL CITY OR NEAR ONE?
If you are a securities licensed advisor and live in a city where an NFL team trains or plays, this might be an idea to attract some wealthy clients who NEED you. The NFL was hit hard the last couple of years by fraud perpetrated on some of its players by scumbags posing as financial advisors. Particularly targeted were young kids, many of whom grew up in inner city settings with no knowledge of finances or money management.
As a result of all the rip-offs, the NFL Players Association instituted its own certification program for advisors who can meet very strict criteria. Here is the information straight from the players association website for your convenience.
