On sunday I chatted with a friend who told me he was making well over 100% returns on making some particular investments. He started out loosing some money, but now he had made it all back and was acing good pay. He also showed me some he was about to get into which had prospects of yeilding about 150 to 200%. It was exciting! Ofcourse we sat down together and talked well about it, and I looked for opportunities to cash in myself. The most interesting thing however, was the we had this conversation in front of a bookshop. We both are people who get very impulsive in making investments into ourselves. We talked about a number of books, work, life, career, money, culture and other things. I bought a book, my 3rd one this month. The greatest investment you can ever make in yourself is to buy books and read them. There is a collection here. You can also link to the page under About Adeolu, the page that says Buy a book today. Here are some things books can do for you.
