More than a Hobby.

I finished reading "More Than a Hobby" last week. It is a very easy and interesting read and only took me about 3 hours to read it in its entirety. It is the story of how only $600 turned into the Arts & Crafts Behemoth known as Hobby Lobby.
There are many things that can be taken from this book: 1) move product that is not selling, Hobby Lobby purges its stock twice per year to make room for new merchandise. 2) Treat your employees well, if your employees like working for you, they will be more productive!

Please go grab this book and read it to see how the practices at Hobby Lobby can help you with your own business, help you at your current career, or just to see how they did it!


I think that if you want to start trading in stocks or currencies, you first need to do your research. Today I am including a link to wikipedia so that you read about forex. Even if you dont plan on trading currencies, it is nice to know how world currencies relate to each other. This really helps when a company you are investing in has a large footprint outside of the US.
