BUSINESS ADVENTURES

There are reasons that some people make a lot more money than others.

Some of the reasons are fair. And some are unfair.

I choose to focus on things under my control.

How you think is under your control.

I was reading Bill Gates favorite book, “Business Adventures” during lunch.

I can sum up much of the book in a few points:

1. The Opposite Is Often Better: The average human is usually being tricked into doing the wrong thing with their money. When people are buying you should probably be selling. And when they are selling you should probably be buying from them.

2. Appearances Are Often Misleading: “The expectation of an event creates a much deeper impression … than the event itself.”

3. The Only Thing Predictable Is Unpredicability: J. P. Morgan wa asked by a newbie what J.P Morgan predicted the stockmarket was going to do. ‘It will fluctuate,’ replied Morgan dryly.

4. Things Will Go Up And Then Down For A Long Time: “We may see another speculative buildup followed by another crash, and so on until God makes people less greedy.”

Knowledge is what create’s wealth. Books like this can change your life.
