pI’ve been talking to a lot of people recently about their thoughts on the share market at the moment. Just look at the price chart of most major shares, and they all have that same slippery dip straight down that sent brokers crazy back in the 20’s./p
pWhen I start to tell people I’m looking at buying into banks and the financial sector, they look at me like I’m crazy./p
p”You can’t do that!” They say, “The prices have fallen 50% in the last 6 months!”.img src=”http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/entrepreneursuccessclub/~4/mWunp3yKMKs” height=”1″ width=”1″/

Incredible Speed Reading

pimg src=”http://www.entrepreneursuccessclub.com/images/stories/poor_eyesight.jpg” alt=”Speed Reading in 7 Days” title=”Speed Reading in 7 Days” align=”left” /Folks I am absolutely stunned and thrilled to be able to tell you this story!/p
pI set myself a goal last year, I was going to read 52 wealth, personal development, business etc.. books in 52 weeks between the 1st of Febuary 2008 through to the 1st of February 2009./p
pNow this isn’t what you would expect because I didn’t actually complete this goal. I managed to read 23 which i’m still thrilled about as I always say “Shoot for the stars and make it to the moon” and well I did make it to the moon, those 23 books (not including Audio books/seminars i’ve listened to, so could be closer to 33) have made me a different man today than I was 1 year ago.img src=”http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/entrepreneursuccessclub/~4/DfmARja3lEc” height=”1″ width=”1″/

Bonjour!

pimg style=”float: left;” src=”http://www.entrepreneursuccessclub.com/images/stories/french flag.jpg” height=”171″ width=”275″ //p
pBonjour mesdames et messieurs!/p
pLanguage has always been an interest of mine, and so I decided it would be an exciting endeavour to try to learn French. I’ve found a great way to start learning it in the car on my way to the office through the a target=”_blank” title=”Pimsleur Method – The Pimsleur Learning System” href=”http://www.speakalanguage.com/139-273-3-458.html”Pimsleur audio program/a. Today i’ve just completed my 10th unit (each unit is approx 30mins) and i’ve found that I can hold a basic conversation (albeit a lot of it seems to be about trying to pick up young french madamemouislles), asking the time, if they speak english, if they would like to have a drink (at my place). The thing that impresses me most about the program though, is how it teaches it to you so naturally and organically. I find often that without having to put in too much effort listening in the car, later on in the afternoon, I can find myself recreating the conversations in my head or throwing the phrases into my conversations with friends and family./pimg src=”http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/entrepreneursuccessclub/~4/7_BOJUBdqyc” height=”1″ width=”1″/

pI came across this interesting blog post today where Charles has created a chart (see left) that shows the number of square feet each person has in their respective countries. Here in Australia each person has almost 4 million square feet to play around in (except that most of it is in the center and is desert) check out the full story here a title=”Chart of Population Per Sqaure Feet” href=”http://www.boingboing.net/2009/01/30/charts-3.html”http://www.boingboing.net/2009/01/30/charts-3.html/a/pimg src=”http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/entrepreneursuccessclub/~4/0nh0MasD1FA” height=”1″ width=”1″/
