Three Tips For Freelancers

Three Tips For Freelancers

It’s funny how certain words have certain connotations, isn’t it? I mean, we give words meaning based upon certain contexts, and these meanings inform our subsequent usage and understanding of these words. For example: freelancer. It is amazing to me that so many people still don’t hold freelancers in the same regard as entrepreneurs, when, […]

Pundits Predict Pound’s Plummet (Again)

Pundits Predict Pound’s Plummet (Again)

Remember that whole PESTLE thing that I’d mentioned before? Well, PESTLE has again come to mind as pundits from all over the world of finance have united in their pessimism of the British sterling’s short-term future, predicting the pound’s inevitable plummet against the U.S. dollar and Chinese yen as a result of Brexit.   I […]

Light at the End of the Tunnel…..

Light at the End of the Tunnel…..

Allow me to reintroduce myself…..   Yes, It’s been a long while since I was last seen or heard from. However, there is a reasonable (in my opinion) explanation for that. The challenges of being a distance learning student are many, and the freedom to procrastinate working on assignments in order to take care of […]

The PESTLE of Possibilities

One of the most valuable nuggets of knowledge I’ve gained during my program is related to the PESTLE analysis. At first, I used to think of finance in isolation, as a discreet discipline with a prescribed framework for analysis. In other words, I used to think that finance decisions could be based solely upon the […]

Resolution for 2017: Be an entrepreneur, or work for one

Resolution for 2017: Be an entrepreneur, or work for one

With the start of each new calendar year, millions (or hundreds of millions) of people around the world feel a renewed energy and resolve to make the new year better than the previous one. Health club memberships increase exponentially, and the first few days of the year are alive with banter about what bounties potentially […]

Diverse Opinions on Diversification

As revelers the world over ring in the new year, many of us will reflect on our coulda, woulda, shouldas from 2016. Most people I know have at least one resolution related to financial well-being. Eschewing the plethora of get-rich-quick schemes (multi-level marketing, for instance), many professionals might consider investing a portion of their earnings […]

Scattershooting at Year’s End

I attended a week-long training course for KPIs last week. In general, it was interesting, and I quickly realized how much I still needed to learn about KPIs. However, the most important part of the course, in my perspective, was the networking opportunity to meet other professionals working in business. The hotel had 3 other […]

MSc Fin 2017….FinTech Next?

MSc Fin 2017….FinTech Next?

As we near the downhill portion of this MSc race, I can’t help but to eye the future.  Of course, the reality is that I didn’t join this program intending to earn my MSc Finance. Actually, I just wanted to give myself better odds of passing the CFA exams, and since the program is CFI […]

It’s Been A Long Time….

Gee whiz. It seems like it’s been ages since I last posted something. The funny thing is that every few days, I tell myself that I need to post something. However, real life always seems to have other plans. The truth is that real life – i.e., work – has kept me quite busy. In […]

Economy, not Email: The Real Reason Clinton Lost

Economy, not Email: The Real Reason Clinton Lost

My disclaimer is that I’m American, so I find myself inextricably drawn into the election abyss. While most pundits predicted a landslide win for Clinton – largely as a result of the ineptitude of her opponent, to say nothing of divisiveness of his campaign rhetoric – her campaign apparently failed to gain traction where it […]
