” I made my money the old-fashioned way. I was very nice to a wealthy relative right before he died.” -Malcolm Forbes Money can seem like a difficult thing to achieve, but it doesn’t always have to be. Many people go out looking for their American Dream, and others still might find it landing in […]

“Money is a terrible master but an excellent servant.” – P.T. Barnum ‘Whoever has the gold makes the rules’ comes to my mind as I read this quote. People have always ruled over other people in one way or another, but money being a master has become a frighteningly frequent trend. Being ruled by debt […]

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” –Steve Jobs Innovation is defined as “the action or process of innovating”, or  “a new method, product, idea”. There are plenty of followers out there, plenty of people jumping on the bandwagon of the newest fad, but true leaders start the fad. Steve Jobs certainly was an innovator, […]

At Due we love to quote famous people. This combined with the obsessed with Minions the movie caused me to put together this post. Here in the Valley, we have our own set of Minions that have done extraordinary things over the course of the last decade. Though not all of them are from the Valley […]

“How many millionaires do you know who have become wealthy by investing in savings accounts? I rest my case.” –Robert G. Allen I remember when I was a kid thinking that a savings account would make me lots of money. I thought that because the bank charged mom and dad interest, that when I gave […]

“If all the economists were laid end to end, they’d never reach a conclusion.” -George Bernard Shaw Having graduated in Economics, Shaw’s quote kinda makes me want to smack him, but in some senses it is very correct. Economists don’t always seem to agree with one another. It’s not that economists are born to be argumentative […]

“If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.” -Henry Ford All of us have uttered the phrase, “once I have money I will …..” And I can’t fault you for it, it’s […]

“Buy when everyone else is selling and hold until everyone else is buying. That’s not just a catchy slogan. It’s the very essence of successful investing.” -J. Paul Getty This philosophy plays very heavily on human psychology. We don’t react very well to bad news. We get flustered, make rash decisions, and typically make mistakes. In […]

“I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.” -Thomas Jefferson Why yes I did scour through my list of quotes to find one from a founding father for the 4th of July, thanks for noticing! I think we often get caught up in the […]

“Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.” -Norman Vincent Peale While it may feel like our empty pockets are holding us back, that’s not typically the case. My brother has a funny saying when we’re at the Apple Store, he says “just ask” because the worst anyone […]
