You only can build a successful firm with a tremendous amount of hardwork surrounding yourself with fantastic people. I’ve been really blessed to be able to do that delegating a lot of responsibility to those people and having a firm culture and values of putting the clients first which is something we’ve prided ourselves on from day one. We wish it weren’t didn’t form our business to make a profit. We formed our business to store the clients capital and yes we make a profit but that was not the intention of the firm the intention was the clients help to start the business because they wanted their capital managed well. So it’s a great great vision that’s come come to fruition over 35 years which is what kind of books do you read? My whole life I’ve been a reader and I think there are probably multiple reasons but I’m curious. I want to know how things work and even more importantly I want to know what’s going to happen and what’s going to happen is often related to what has happened. I read history I read psychology and read finance and business. I read a lot of biography. I’m drawn to anything that makes me a better person. Makes me a better investor. Makes me a better philanthropist or just makes me more knowledgeable about the world.
