Basically this site is a repository for much of my writings or intellectual property found across the web: whether it be media, news sites, other blogs, books, essays, or other en devours I may be pursuing at any given time. I use no editors, therefore typos of all the assorted varieties may be present at any given time, from punctuation or grammatical, to the occasional their for they’re, repeated word, missed word, misplaced or misused word, etc., etc., etc.
This is not an excuse, by any means, for inferred sloppiness. On the contrary, I believe in this format “proof reading” can only go so far. I regard getting the point out quickly and relevant to the headlines of the day as far more important from a pragmatic business aspect than anything else.
But here’s the truly important part: There’s a reason it’s grown to be read (and still is) in over 165 countries, routinely quoted, featured, or reprinted in the largest media sites, bar-none, across the globe to an audience of 10’s of millions at any given time. That reason is – Its underlying content.
Did I mention all without social media? If not, now that you know, re-read the above. Those numbers will suddenly change in weight and meaning once viewed through the proper lens.
You’ll find this blog is different from most others on the web today. Some have described it as “eclectic.” Others have called it “greatly informative.” However, the term never used: is boring.
This site at any time may carry my thoughts on motivation, personal development, strategic thinking and implementation for both the corporate entity, as well as solo practitioner; along with commentary and insights pertaining to the financial markets, Wall Street, global and regional markets, and much more. (Along with the occasional rant of course.)
My goal has always been to provide a no-nonsense resource where individuals can find relevant information or commentary that’s useful, and insightful. I approach my writings and other works from a stand point where it doesn’t matter if someone is new to the path of entrepreneurship, sales, management, self-improvement, etc. Or, is well along the journey.
Whether you’re running a Fortune 100™ global conglomerate, or own a tattoo parlor, there will be some form of insight you can take away and put to use in your daily life. Either personal or business. Again my goal is to help provide some clarity for anyone who’s truly looking for informative, actionable insights to many of today’s business challenges. Rather than the same old, same old trite.
I am quoted as stating: “Properly articulated, actionable advice has no boundary.” That’s not just some catch phrase; it’s a belief. Doesn’t matter if it’s something I say or someone else. If you can’t understand it, apply it, or make any sense of it? It’s useless. Period.
Many speakers or writers today whether they be in the motivational, or other genres, are no more than what I refer to as “Snake Oil” salespeople. It’s sad, but true. Personally I simply refuse to fill these pages with any pie-in-the-sky type thinking that can be more damaging to individuals than if they did nothing at all. If you feel what you need is some form of rah, rah, rah writings, or speeches for motivation – than may I suggest a double espresso. I’ll contend it will have about the same lasting effects as the “Snake Oil” hawkers, but at least the investment won’t break the bank.
One of the great challenges facing many today is in the quest for actionable answers or insights regarding uncertainties. For the consequences in how you deal with any answers may be profound, or just superficial. Knowing the difference between the two as to use or avoid should be your greatest motivator in seeking clarity.
Unlike others I have considerable hands-on knowledge gained via experience, as well as a documented track record in many spheres of business. Personally I’ve achieved many of the brass-ring styled trophies across different segments of business and life – more than once.
This gives me both the perspective along with the ability to express what I believe will help others. Unlike the many out there who’ve only: read someone’s book, about what they read in someone else’s book, and now wrote a book, so that you can now buy their book – to read – what they’ve read.
“The responsibility for your life begins and ends with you. As with anything in life understand it is up to you, and you alone to fact check, or verify any information published no matter the source. (Even if it’s me!) Never take anyone’s word that something works, or will not. If it feels like you’re doing something wrong or something risky, you probably are. Always use common sense. It’s your life to live, treat it as such.”
Below is what is known as: “Satisfying the Legal Department”
DISCLAIMER: Please be aware that all opinions expressed are just that – opinions. And should not be construed, nor should one infer, that I am in any way, shape, manner, or form a financial adviser, or recommending what one should do with their investing, or any other monetary decisions.
For legal advice in these matters one should always research an accredited financial planner, accountant, or lawyer for actionable counsel.
Just like you, we dislike listing what’s known in legal parlance as the fine print. But some people want to know any rules, so here they are. We still like to think that people don’t need to be told right from wrong, or that some print will stop them from understanding responsibility begins with their own actions first. Adults should have, and practice common sense. If it feels like you’re doing something wrong or something risky, you probably are. It was told to us by our parents, and we still believe it trumps any typed notice.
