Why Write an Email Newsletter?
April 24, 2022

 

My answer to this question is to ask another:

What if I keep seeking out the very best people?
To learn from them:
To shine a light on what they are doing right.
If I make them a part of my ecosystem?
If I amplify their actions?

My email newsletter is one answer – and has done so much to change my life for the better.

I tell the first part of that story in my book, the Education of a Value Investor: I was a failed Gordon Gecko wannabe when I encountered Warren Buffett. That lead to a friendship with Mohnish Pabrai and to a lunch meeting with Warren himself.

That journey has continued – ever richer and more joyful to this day. Mohnish became a life-long friend. He was befriended by the Munger clan and yet more Mungeresque personalities came into my life: Li Lu, William Green, Nick Sleep and others.

My goal with this newsletter is to highlight parts of that journey – to draw out some of the lessons, to grow the ecosystem and celebrate.

The email selections are always deliberately personal and eclectic. My insights and conclusions are never final. Like you, I’m learning every day. I’m a work in progress.

I am also the author of a book titled The Education of a Value Investor, which was published in 2014.

As I wrote in my book, we are all a work in progress. This site documents my ongoing quest for “wealth, wisdom and enlightenment”.
