Pretty high up on the list of things I loathe is routine. And having to wake up at a time your body clock did not set. Or having to go to work. Even worse is going to work during winter when it is still dark outside. How unnatural is that? So when I was still employed, my absolute dream job was something you could do at any time, in your PJs if you fancied. Here is a list of money-making ideas for the office averse: [Read more...]

Warren Buffett is often ranked the richest man in the world. With that being said, I think it’s fair to say that he knows what he’s doing. However, just because somebody happens to have the most money doesn’t necessarily mean they’re the best at managing it. However, in Warren’s case it’s more-so about how he made his money, kept his money, and made more of it. And keeps making more of it. I’m writing about WB (how many different ways can I refer to one man?) not only because of his wealth and greatness as a collector and multiplier of money, but also due to his general mindset, life philosophies and integrity. I think there’s perhaps a misconception among those who only know his name and maybe that he’s a ‘fat cat’ or a ‘Wall Street guy’ and just another greedy, ruthless gambler of big money. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Study Wazza just a little bit and you will discover a truly interesting, empathetic, intelligent and brilliant man. The big W doesn’t carelessly gamble money or throw multitudes of cash at walls to see what sticks, rather – he makes old-fashioned investments, in companies that he understands. And cares about. And companies that he then jumps on-board to try and improve and make better. He has decent ethics, an amazingly neurotic and detailed gift for analyzing businesses from the ground-up, and an amazingly in-depth understanding of a multitude of financial principles. I really think he’ll go down as one of the most celebrated modern minds in business due to what he stands for, how he goes about his business, and the character he brings to the table. OKAY, enough blathering, let’s get down to business: here’s 3 things you can learn from Warren Buffet: [Read more...]
