Re: Why one entrepreneur ran his business while sailing around the*world

It sounds like the self-styled CEO and owner of an investment firm, who was concerned that his clients might fire him, was simply a self-employed solo investment advisor.

Who continued to run a business, which consisted of mainly reading the news and giving his opinions on investments, while taking a "working sabbatical". Which by definition has to be a bastard creation, either you are working or you are on sabbatical, a compromise isn't a sabbatical.

Just another self-employed business author who was working from home, and fortunate enough to have a mobile home in the age of good telecommunications.

A business model (working from home) that anyone could copy. And a business model (financial advisor with loyal clients) that anyone could or couldn't copy. I've always felt that a really successful financial advisor wouldn't need to play with his clients' money, he'd be rich just by following his own advice. If he believed in it.

What did the Dow Jones do last year? Ahuh, and how many financial advisors made 1/3 of that gai for their clients? While keeping what percent of their portfolios, win or lose, for themselves?

Charisma is great, but it doesn't make for a business model by itself.
