#48 Adventure Capitalist

Conor Woodman took $50,000 right as the current recession was about to happen and set off on an around the world trading adventure.  His goal was to see if he could buy goods in one country and sell them in the next country he visited.  Did he succeed?  Well, you’ll have to read the book.  On his to sell list was coffee, camels, chili sauce, jade, tea and some other stuff.  And he did a lot of haggling.  I myself am too chicken shit to haggle, but it’s the way things are done in most parts of the world.  Maybe I should work on it before I go to Kenya.  Good little read.  Despite not ever taking a business class or having the slightest desire to ever get involved, I find the process and practice all very fascinating.  I like reading the business section of the NY Times.
I also like knowing I only have 2 more books to read this year.  More than likely, I’ll read more than 50, but it will be pleasant not to have this pressure to do so.  In 2011, I’m going to try and pick some new years resolutions that are not so stressful.  Maybe trying to go to the Seychelles or something.  Yes, that sounds nice.
