Well some really good news from the greatest investor Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, the company doubled its profit for 3Q owing to no secret sauce but ketchup. Ahhaaa, in 2013 they bought ketchup maker H.J. Heinz and “embarked on an aggressive cost-cutting drive to boost margins. Then, in March, they engineered Heinz’s purchase of Kraft Foods Group Inc., creating the third-biggest food and beverage company in North America and a $4.4 billion windfall for Berkshire.” Article here
And because it’s Sunday I just thought I’d share some reflections the past week. I have been having more energy and focus in the market and continual study because of one thing — COMMITMENT. I have had to deal with house hunting, renovations etc so I am pulled in various directions. My social life has been so busy too. We all love our family, but things can get stressful in everyday life (and I won’t talk about having to deal with a mother-in-law! haha). So I was praying, Lord, please help me to have the energy, better health and focus so I can do my business well while I take care of my self and my kids. Answer to my prayers came to me with some articles I have been reading, one of those was “Barking Up The Wrong Tree” which is always a great read so I want to thank Eric Barker the writer of this blog. Check up his latest article “The Lazy Way to Stop Procrastinating” . However, I must say deep inside of us, we have that ONE reason or two, why we want to invest, why we keep studying and keeping up with the market, why we spend money to learn investing. That REASON is why we COMMIT. What is that reason for you?
My reasons are waiting for me to go on our Sunday roadtrip.
