Financial Ramblings

This has been quite a disappointing week. First, I didn’t get any news regarding my raise. When you consider that I am some kind of a client for my employer, putting one of your good client on the shelf for more than a week may not be the greatest idea of all. The client starts to think he should look seriously what kind of product he can get elsewhere 😉

On another topic, we failed to purchase a great website. Most sites are sold through forums in a auction. We have a model to buy our sites (similar to the one we could use to buy stocks but with difference parameters). The site fitted perfectly but the auction went really too high and then, lost the most important thing; the price! When you buy any assets, make sure that it is at the right price. The right asset at the wrong price is always a bad deal!

Then, I didn’t lose a pound this week! After losing 23 pounds in 4 weeks, I am back between 187 and 190 lbs depending on the day I check…. Definitely a week to forget!

So while I am about to spend my weekend in my MBA book, I leave you with a few good read:
