Be Relentless: Lessons from Season 9
Entrepreneurship is an uphill and often solo trek only for the brave
Five Books That Educated me about Investing and Business
By Dan Gonzales
I never took a business class in undergrad. Instead, I majored in English at UC Riverside and spent the majority of my time reading old texts mostly in time periods over one hundred years ago. But one day my friend showed me The Intelligent Investor by Warren Buffet and Benjamin Graham.
Even though I haven't made a fortune from the stock market, understanding how investing works is an important factor in setting up your financial future.
If I told you I read this book from start to finish I would have a hard time believing myself, but I did. It's very dense and feels like 500 pages becuse it is. While reading Inteliigent Investor was one of the hardest things I have read because it cannot be read fast and requires paying attention, I enjoyed the timeless lessons I learned.
After having read this book, I joined a venture capital program called Venture University and made investments into 5 startups. It's great to get in early so why not invest before they go public at the seed stage?
