Making Billions the Simple Way

20170930_134616

Warren Buffett is the person to follow not only if you are seeking intellectual ways to perform trade and stock pickings but in the practical way that he lives his life. No, he isn’t perfect, but there is a method to his madness. Despite the fact that he is a multi-billionaire with stakes in several companies from See’s Candy and Johnson & Johnson to the Coca-Cola Company he has a strategy that’s actually simple.

In The Warren Buffett Way by Robert G. Hagstrom, you will learn the characteristics behind the investments as displayed in Chapter Four: Common Stock Purchases: Nine Case Studies.  I have been a fan of Buffett for decades and have read several books about him, and each time I come away with something different about him. In this book, you will learn the various ways in how Buffett processes his investments, as well as learning about his principles and practices.

From his childhood to his mentoring relationships, everything that he has encountered has been instrumental in the choices that have made about his success as displayed in Chapter Two: The Education of Warren  Buffett. You will learn from this book that it takes practice to acquire not only the financial gain that Buffett is known for but the most important thing is to fully understand the industry in which you have an interest in investing in. Did you know that your knowledge of industry commodities will help you to obtain a more sound investment decision?

While everyone may not obtain the same financial gain as Buffett, it is always a great practice to understand the man behind this simple principle as shown in Chapter Six: The Psychology of Investing. As Buffett states “patience is the key.” As you will see in Chapter Eight: The World’s Greatest Investor, Buffet states it simply “How I got here is pretty simple in my case. It is not IQ; I’m sure that you will be glad to hear. The big thing is rationality…..”

In Buffett’s Tenets: Business, Management, Financial and Markets you will be taught the various aspects of the decision-making process. As an added feature watch the movie, Becoming Warren Buffet, where you will learn not only about the man and his billions. Also, you will learn about his wife, Susan, who died in 2004 but has left an indelible mark on who he is today.

What You Say?

DSC_9627b&w_8x10

Am I the only one whose child gets embarrassed when I say or do certain things? How did your children feel about what you said or did as they were growing up? Funny, how our children only see us as parents but refuse to acknowledge us as human beings as well.  Put your seat belt on and get ready for a barrel of laughs, and belly aches as you read Sh*t My Dad Says by Justin Halpern. If my daughter knew that there was an audience for my type of sayings despite how off the cuff it may have seemed to her, she would have been able to beat Halpern to the punch by creating her own book.

Halpern’s dad is the typical dad of his time where he holds no punches on what he believes or has to say about life, relationships and the issues that Halpern faced on a daily basis from his childhood to life as an adult. Halpern’s dad choice of profanity helps to bring the points home. Let me give you a little taste of the delectable delicacies that you will find in this book (without the expletive words):

  • Listen, I don’t give a f*** if you forget my birthday. I don’t need people reminding me I’m closer to death. But your mom, she still enjoys counting them down, so cancel your f**** plans and drive down here for her birthday day….
  • Pick your furniture like you pick a wife, it should make you feel comfortable and look nice, but not so nice that if someone walks past it they want to steal it.

While I am not a fan of profanity, I too lived in this world of this unique language. And to read a book that embraces this form of speaking allows me to relive my childhood because I too, had a father who spoke with such eloquence which I adopted as well for a season as a parent.  Regardless, you will continue to laugh while enjoying this compact and easy to read book. If you grew up with parents of this era or was this type of parent yourself, you are in for a treat. Enjoy!

Do You Hear Me Now?

20170427_121521

When someone is talking to you do you actually hear what they are saying? When you pray, do you hear God’s response?  How To Listen To God by Charles Stanley will take you on a journey through the various steps and processes to understanding how God talks to us. While everyone’s interaction with God is different, there are some universal ways that God talks to us from His word and confirmation from others to hearing directly from Him during your prayer time. In this book, you can obtain a clearer understanding of your relationship with God. Do you know if God is talking to you?

One factor to this connection is that when you pray, expect, an answer. Now keep in mind that the answers that you seek may not occur in the way that you desire. An example is that you ask God for transportation or more specifically a car. When you pray, trust and begin seeking the answers to your prayers. You may see your answers surface in various ways from a friend giving you a car to you being approved for a car within your price range, despite your poor credit.

Learn your communication language with God so that you do not miss the answers to your prayers. If you are seeking a more productive learning experience with God, this is a book that you must add to your library. Remember, God is speaking. God does answer prayers. Do you have your listening ears on?

Keep Your Eyes on High

Janie was a woman of mystery that every man was intrigued about in Eatonville. The men in the town could not understand why she chose to be married to Mr. Joe Starks, who was almost twice her age. What they came to understand was that Starks was a smart man that came to their town with great ideas and with money. It was his ideas and money that garnered him to be elected the town’s mayor.

On the other hand, the town’s women felt that Starks could have chosen someone better, like someone his own age and they couldn’t understand why he chose someone young like Janie. Despite what the town felt Stark and Janie had that special something, that connection that kept them together “til death do them part.” When Starks died Janie decided to leave Eatonville to embark on another adventure, this is when she met Teacake. Teacake was different than any man that Janie ever knew. Not only was Teacake much younger than her but he provided her with the adventure, excitement, and love like she’s never felt before.  As Janie tells it Teacake made her insides feel like some live bumble bees.

Their Eyes Were Watching God By Zora Neal Hurston is about how your choices can affect the decisions that you make, how passion becomes the center of your world and how watching God during tragic occurrences and taking action can guide you to where you were meant to be.

Life Is Not As It Seems

CAM00044

Life is not always as it seems. Neighbors, BJ and Tammy knew this mantra all too well. To the outside world, they had an unusual friendship because BJ was black and Tammy was white but despite what others thought they were BFFs. One day both of their worlds turned upside down. BJ had two sisters, Arlene and Venetia who was not in touch with their own realities so what happens when they come to grips with their reality and BJ finds herself in the middle? Also, when BJs daughter and two sons become a force to be reckoned with when their world begins to take over the solitude that BJ once held so dearly. What happens to BJ when her daughter drops off her two young sons, Luther and Ricky; her son comes from home after a stint in prison and her other son can’t seem to stay faithful in a relationship and come to grips with who he really is?

On the other hand, when Tammy was left as the trustee of her parents’ estate, she decided to make a sound decision by giving her brothers a hefty portion of the estate, however despite her goodwill they hated her primarily because she married a black man. Her daughter, Montana asked to allow her and her husband, Trevor to live with Tammy until she delivers her baby, Clementine. What started as a temporary stay turned into years of support. With all of this going one day one of her brothers turned up and things in Tammy’s life would never be the same again.

Who Asked You By Terry McMillan displays how our lives can be directly affected when others interject their issues, problems, and concerns onto us. One day you can be into the flow of your life and the next day all of that can be changed in a twinkling of an eye.
