In the midst of a gruelling bear market, companies that provide services to publicly traded resource ventures have been hit almost as hard as those operating in the space. However, advising and consulting to junior miners also provides an intimate view into the company, a perspective many individuals are not granted. This, in turn, offers… Continue Reading

Do you feel it in your feet? That is and was Ed Flood: geologist, family guy, bicyclist, superb skier, reader of finely tuned thrillers, connector, economist, lover, lithium booster, investor. R. Edward Flood died this week, on Thursday, at the family home in Sun Valley, Idaho. He had been battling ALS, a neuro-motor degenerative disease,… Continue Reading

I needed $20 million or I was going to die. That’s how I felt. I had a business, $20 million was invested in it, and then my investor went broke and needed the money back. But that would put me out of business. And then I would go broke and die. He threatened me. He… Continue Reading

Ok. I have a confession. Not quite like a confession. More like an adjustment. I’m only saying this because it’s Financial Fridays. But I’ve mislead a little. That’s all. I’ve written that people should not trade stocks. People should not daytrade. People should stay out of the markets. I believe this. But I also don’t… Continue Reading

I was passionate when I was throwing hard pointed rocks at other little kids. “I hit him!” My friends and I would climb around construction sites, pretending they were forts. And throw rocks at each other until we were caught by parents. By adults. Fun! Einstein found his passion because he wondered what a man… Continue Reading

I hate writing about finance. The most violent, ugly people in the world work in the traditional finance industry. I write something and instead of responding with a well-reasoned argument, they write things like “James Altucher is a wacko” or “James Altucher is a scumbag”. I’ve written for or appeared on the Wall St Journal,… Continue Reading

Ok, I admit it. I perjured in a court of law. It was after I ran over a guy. It was in 1985 or 86. I forget. I was 17 or 18. I remember it was raining. I remember the car spinning. I remember I went through a windshield. Supposedly when you go through a… Continue Reading

Then they told me I had to either take a 50% pay cut or I would be fired. If I was fired they would give me severance. I didn’t like either choice. I had responsibilities. I was counting on the money. I was scared. I wasn’t expecting this. HR said, “I have to legally tell… Continue Reading

Have you ever tried to achieve a Buddha like level of enlightenment? I tried once and lasted less than 24 hours. Too many other distractions were getting in the way, like my work commitments and a real estate purchase I was trying to close. Unfortunately, a true state of enlightenment requires a level of concentration… Continue Reading

After my dad went into a permanent coma I had to take his car back to the dealership and hand them the keys. They wanted to know what happened and I couldn’t talk. I couldn’t sign papers. I was shaking. I held out the keys and they took them. I walked out. My dad was… Continue Reading

When I was ten I wanted to be an astronaut, a writer, a spy, a superhero, and an advice columnist. I wrote a play. I did spy on people. But I couldn’t figure out how to be a superhero. I read collected columns of “Dear Abby” (an advice columnist) every day. The only advice I… Continue Reading

I used to love my job. Love it. I worked for my favorite entertainment company in the world. I would’ve paid to work there. I made friends at work. And on weekends we’d even get together and play poker. Sometimes we’d even travel on vacations together. My boss would yell at me but I could… Continue Reading

French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte is quoted throughout the Internet as having once said a leader is a dealer in hope. That’s what you are when you lead: a hope dealer. Out of everything you do to achieve your vision, one of the most important is writing like a leader. Too many times, it’s the face-to-face… Continue Reading
