The Boring Portfolio announced it was selling Cisco. This seems off topic but the points for the decision to sell makes some great investing analogies. For instance, a business owner typically has most of their capital tied into their business and they know every nook and cranny of it -- yet many will put a sizable amount of money into a stock on a mere "hot tip." This is crazy as the column points out.

As an entrepreneur it is simply best to have a passion for what you build -- first and foremost. It is the only way to start as a future business owner.

Anyways, this is the first post on this board by a membber so its great to have the honors. Hope the self-employed and future entrepreneurs like myself visit here to share learning experiences and etc.

Gonzo on,
