The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

Just because you can post anything, doesn’t mean you should. If this is your first visit to my blog, Yoast would want me to make some carefully chosen recommendations.

I started this blog in 2005 after hand coding a homepage for a decade. So I have some thoughts on how to make a blog better. In the over twenty years I’ve been building and maintaining websites I’ve encountered a lot of difficulties many of which you can avoid if you make some smart decisions and you stay disciplined.

It took a lot of time, effort, discipline, and sacrifice but I managed to complete first an MBA then pass all three exams in the CFA® Program. As a result I’ve written more than a few posts on venture capital, financing, and entrepreneurship.

Over the years I’ve lived abroad four separate times. I lived in Nuremberg for a couple months during the dot.com era working on a German e-commerce website. I then taught English in Japan and China. This has resulted in a lot of posts about living, traveling, and working in China and elsewhere.
