My Worst Investment Ever

“Only a fool learns from his own mistakes. The wise man learns from the mistakes of others.” 
– Otto von Bismarck


This short book started when I asked a few friends what their worst investment was. What I did not expect was that each of them had such a vivid story to tell. Heck, even my 79-year-old mom responded with a very specific story.
The truth is that in the world of finance we are always talking about our winners, about the story of our returns. But, we so rarely talk about failures. This is a book about investing failures. You may relate to one of these stories, or have lived one of them, but most importantly, I want you to learn from them.

Business Leaders in Asia: The Business DNA of Great Leaders

In Business DNA, award-winning financial analyst Andrew Stotz digs in to the essential makeup of business leaders and their organizations. The focus is not on the short-term, but rather on understanding the driving forces of a business long-term. Recall that DNA is the molecule that encodes the genetic instructions used for the growth of any living organism. And of course, a business is very much a living and growing organism. This book includes interviews with six leaders of publicly traded companies covering a range of industries. A few main themes stand out in these Business DNA interviews. Firstly, these leaders focus on one thing, until they can do that one thing exceptionally well. Next, they work to identify their company’s limiting factor, that one major constraint to progress. Once identified, they focus their company’s energy on solving that one issue. Only when they solve that issue do they move to the next priority. Andrew himself lives by the motto, “Never stop learning,” and who better to learn from than leaders with long experience of running successful companies.
