Dow Under 9000: Bad Day...Great News!

The Dow just dipped under 9000 today. For those stock traders (or at least casual followers), you can expect to see doom and gloom in the news. You are going to hear all sorts of predictions about the economy heading into the tank. There are a lot of people panicking in general, and they're selling big time.

Networking: Spend Time with People Who Are Driven and Excited

If you want to become a really good musician, does it make sense to spend time with Warren Buffet or Beyonce Knowles? Whether you are a fan of Beyonce, I think I know that you are not going to Mr. Buffet for musical inspiration.

If you don’t think the people with whom you associate affect how much money you make, I’m going to suggest that you think again.

Hello, all fellow investors and those who might want to become one.

Most of you looking at my post already know about me, but for those of you who do not know me, let me tell you a little about myself.

I want to learn how to make money.

I don't want extravagant things, except an occasional trip. Even then, my tastes are pretty simple while my appreciation for the little things remain high. I really like removing stress from my life. I don't need big things; I just want a big cushion so that I never HAVE TO do anything just BECAUSE I need the money.

My goal is to learn how to make money in enough different ways to be able to teach the greatest number of people how to make money. I am happiest when I am helping people. Plus, I think that it could help reduce racial, ethnic, and sexual discrimination and other needless negative tensions between different groups of people. You might hate people who have my demographic, but how can you hate someone who helps you solve problems? Maybe you'll still hate me, but you won't hate what I've done for you.

Hopefully, throughout this blog, I will provide some ideas that you didn't know. If not, maybe I will reinforce what you already know.

Ask questions as often as you'd like. I cannot stress how much I welcome them.
