How to Make Money in the Obama Age

With our country spinning in a whirlpool of change, it takes some daring to resolve to not only survive, but to thrive. As government chugs along toward its destination of no longer being the friend of the American citizen, it behooves each citizen to take care of himself and his own.

That’s why Ziad Abdelnour’s new book, “Economic Warfare: Secrets of Wealth Creation in the Age of Welfare Politics” grabbed my attention. In short, America is the land of opportunity, but it is being run by change agents who want to take your hard-earned money and redistribute it to voting blocs beholden to … the redistributors!

For some time, this reality has created real problems for the most innovative and resourceful Americans. It is also seen in the subtle propaganda in the media, who love to lambast, for example, corporations, in the drive to remake America. The non-discerning (see Movement, Occupy) lap it up and fail to see they are merely dupes.

Thank you,

I am Approached Every year by Hundreds of Entrepreneurs with Great Ideas..

I am approached every year by hundreds of entrepreneurs with great ideas, great strategies but no track record of execution – all seeking funding for their respective ventures – and I turn them down one after the other for a lack of track record executing.

So here is some food for thought for all those of you still debating whether should funders back an idea / strategy or whether execution/track record is really what counts.

First time and aspiring entrepreneurs often mistakenly believe that a completely unique and original idea is what’s going to make them rich. In reality it has very little to do with the idea, and more about the choice of market, the team, the execution, the persistence, timing, and how good you are at adapting the business along the way based on what you learn.  Read More....

Art of the Deal – The Rules of Negotiation

I negotiate with hundreds of people a year – both online and offline – haggling, whether it is with customers, suppliers, investors, or would-be employees.

I can humbly say I learned over the years to negotiate like a “true master” though we all sometimes get into trouble – when something careless just slips out.

Here are a few but priceless tips as to what to avoid if you are really keen on improving your negotiation skills.

1. Avoid the word “between.” It often feels reasonable—and therefore like progress—to throw out a range. With a customer, that may mean saying “I can do this for between $10,000 and $15,000.” With a potential hire, you could be tempted to say, “You can start between April 1 and April 15.” 

But that word “between” tends to be tantamount to a concession, and any shrewd negotiator with whom you deal will swiftly zero-in on the cheaper price or the later deadline. In other words, you will find that by saying the word “between” you will automatically have conceded ground without extracting anything in return.

Welcome to the New World of Physical Commodities Trading & Wealth Creation

As JP Morgan Chase & Co has now exited the physical commodities trading business, one wonders what the future of the business at large – along with the one of the two major banks that have dominated Wall Street’s involvement in the natural resources supply chain for 30 years – will be, particularly when it comes to Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley; the ultimate “Wall Street Refiners”.

Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley may hold one advantage over JPMorgan, as their long history of operating in physical commodities as less regulated banks may provide them with “grandfathered” ownership of assets like warehouses, pipelines and storage tanks that other commercial banks aren’t allowed…I am afraid though this advantage is clearly narrowing by the day.

It is a fact that since 2012 Morgan Stanley has looked at selling its commodity arm and Goldman has made moves to scale back its physical operations.
