Hello readers its been a while now since I even visited my own site, every time when I try to sign in, I always get something to occupy the space, and when I overcame that and opened it, it takes me a lot to start a post, I start….type about a paragraph or two and blank…..it goes again…..
This has been consistent for a while now and I have called myself to discipline today seeing someone write about the benefits of keeping a diary record of your activities in an active blog. Well I must confess it not been easy to maintain a blog even when I get viewership from over 40 countries in the world (a real encouragement) and also have a regular reader and commentators base the likes of Ameya Waghmare from India and Jeff Brunson from Australia.

It is so hard to hear someone tell you to invest now when what you should actually be doing is save, but to shock you this is the time to do the unimaginable, they capitalized on situations like this especially during the gulf war and bought huge amount of shares, even during the great depression, but I can only imagine how difficult it was for them at that time to release a whole lot to invest, but years after, it is paying off, their names are mentioned on top of the world’s richest men.
