Mark Zandi – Financial Shock

From The Oprah & Friends Radio Show with Jean Chatzky, 14 August 2008 Financial Shock: A 360º Look at the Subprime Mortgage Implosion, and How to Avoid the Next Financial Crisis by Mark Zandi The subprime financial crisis is the decade’s #1 financial story. What happened? How did it occur? And how can we prevent similar crises from happening again? Dr. Mark Zandi answers all these critical questions – systematically, carefully, and in plain English. Zandi begins with a fast-paced “history” of the crisis: where it started, how it spread, and where the fallout has landed. Next, he illuminates its deepest causes, ranging from the psychology of homeownership to Alan Greenspan’s missteps. You’ll watch the “flippers” at work and the real estate agents who cheered them on. You’ll learn how Internet technology and access to global capital transformed mortgage lending, helping irresponsible lenders “drive out” good ones. Zandi demystifies the complex financial engineering that enabled lenders to hide growing risks and shows how global investors eagerly bought in, despite key warning signs. You’ll discover how homebuilders contributed to the crisis, and how flummoxed regulators and policymakers failed to prevent it. Zandi offers indispensable advice for investors who must recognize emerging bubbles, policymakers who must improve oversight and citizens who must reduce their risks, so they can survive whatever comes next.

Interview Dr. Ivan Misner Business Networking International (BNI)

In this interview with Dr. Ivan Misner worlds #1 networker.  Have you ever heard of BNI?  (Business Networking International).  BNI is the Facebook and MySpace of Business networking, as a matter of fact they have over 5,000 business networking meetings per week I knew that once I landed the interview with the world’s #1 networker Dr. Ivan Misner I felt that he might be able to share some real tidbits for success and he does not disappoint. He is a passionate man about networking and about helping people. We covered a lot of ground in this interview including Dr. Misners’ new book The 29% Solution which can also be found at 29percentsolution.com. He will teach you a 52 week networking strategy in the book. What I really enjoyed about meeting Ivan is his authenticity and his willingness to share and not hold anything back. He felt like a long lost friend sharing intimate details and keys to success including his meetings with Sir. Richard Branson and he shares the tips that Branson taught him. He goes into detail on how Branson treats everyone with respect no matter their background or income. Misner also talks about his experience in visiting Branson’s Space Port in the Mohave. Most full time college professors who teach business have never been in business, unlike professors of medicine who are actual doctors who teach medicine, same is true for law professors who are real lawyers, but not so for business professors. This information is coming from a “professor,” Dr. Misner. The point here is that networking is not taught in schools but it is taught by Misner and BNI. “Success is the uncommon application and commitment of common knowledge,” says Misner. We all know what it takes to be successful, passion, vision, hard work, luck etc, but we have to apply the uncommon application in order to be a success. Share This Blog more….

In his straight-forward, no-nonsense style, Solin offers the new rules for investing for retirement and shows readers how to quickly and simply determine their own needs, get control of their assets, avoid scams and sucker bets, discover untapped resources at retirement, and eventually get income out of tax deferred plans—the smart way.

Amazing and GREAT Success Story!

This is a riveting interview. I met Mark Anthony Garrett through Youtube. I went to his site to check him out and I saw that he was raised in foster care. This immediately peeked my interest and I had to get to know this guy and his story, because I knew he had a just a few more challenges than the rest of us. I also knew without meeting him he had a great attitude, life has thrown a lot of obstacles at Mark Anthony and he will discuss how he grows through those obstacles vs. goes through the obstacles. In this interview with Mark Anthony Garrett he talks about life and his life. He is authentic, vulnerable, well spoken, clear with his message and someone who is making a difference on a daily basis to hundreds if not thousands of lives. He has a story and now the experience we can all learn from. Let’s touch on some of the highlights: His mom was a prostitute, he came into foster care as an infant. He was adopted at seven years old then he was sexually abused. He was in and out of gangs and he was in drugs. He contemplated suicide. He talks about how he made the choice not to commit suicide with the gun at his head and the help of a friend. All the while he had mentors who got through to him. Now Mark Anthony is giving back that mentorship wisdom to others, especially kids in foster care. Mark Anthony Garrett walks the walk and talks the talk.  I look forward to learning more of the valuable lessons he has to teach.   He is living proof that no obstacle can’t be overcome. This interview will move you, it did me. Thanks for making a difference Mark Anthony, keep up the good work! Share This Blog more….
