Dear Reader:

 

I'm sitting here thinking to myself what's next? I'm buying companies in my own portfolio that I am comfortable holding for at least five years, God willing longer. Well, I'm also looking for a new job. Iraq isn't the kind of place to keep a career going. Sure, I get to see a place few Americans have, but I need to get home and settle down. Iraq also does great things for my portfolio cause there's always crisp dollar bills that go into it; since I am not home to spend it.

 

If I don't get a job soon, I'll probably sit tight for another six months. I figure employers would be beating down the doors for someone who lives and works right between Ar Ramadi and Al Fallujah for over two years. You need someone who's the "firefighter" type and won't quit when it gets tough, I'm your man. You want me to work 10 hours; that's fine. I currently put in 84 a week. Did I forget to mention that I have a degree in management science and plan to get my MBA.

 

I'm also contemplating building my own business. There's this company called Goin Postal that I kind of like. There's a great opportunity in my town for one. I am also thinking about finding a partner and tackling other business opportunities. I also figure with all the cash that I'm sitting on-- I should be able to figure out how to beat Bill Mann and TMFEldrewhosiewhatsit at CAPS. Well, I'm off to do some reading and take care this weekend!

 

-John
