No One Ever Told Us That : Money and Life Letters to My Grandchildren

No One Ever Told Us That : Money and Life Letters to My Grandchildren
This is the book that every grandparent (or parent) has always meant to write for their children.... but has never found the time to do so.

In short, John D. Spooner has been carefully crafted a series of essential life lessons that every young person just out of college or high school needs to read before they embark upon their own life's adventures.

Told in friendly and reassuring tones, Spooner relates wonderful stories to illustrate and gently guide the next generation of what they can expect when searching for a job, how to know if you've found the right spouse, insights on how to plan for one's financial future, how the internet has changed our lives, dealing with adversity in life, and much, more more.

NO ONE EVER TOLD US THAT condenses all of this key information into one volume - and it's presented in a clear-eyed way that only a loving grandparent can.

For decades, John D. Spooner has been one of America's leading financial advisors. Now, as his own grandchildren are on the frightening cusp of adulthood, Spooner has chosen to impart his wisdom to them -- and to readers everywhere -- in the form of old-fashioned letters.

We Were Poor But No One Told Us

We Were Poor But No One Told Us
WE WERE POOR BUT NO ONE TOLD US is the true story of a child of a family of 10, born and raised in the slums of Buffalo, New York, who overcame the obstacles of poverty. The story begins with my parents, Joseph and Rose, two immigrants from Italy. Pa was a decorated hero of the Italian navy and with the meager reward money from King Umberto of Italy, immigrated to the United States, where he met and married Mom in 1913. They raised 10 chilren over a time span over 31 years, through 2 World Wars, the Great Depression and many years of poverty....covering the period between 1913 and 1945. During this period, the only affordable living facility in Buffalo, New York, was on Dante Place, a slum area, adjacent to the abandoned and historic Erie Canal. During the summer months, those old enough, along with Mom, worked on nearby Buffalo farms picking fruit and vegetables. The proceeds from this yearly summer endeavor carried the family through the winter months. Pa worked as a laborer on the Lehigh Valley railroad for 7 days a week until he retired in 1978. Despite many personal trials and near catastrophic events over the years, the family emerged stronger.

They Told Me Not to Take That Job : Tumult, Betrayal, Heroics, and the Transformation of Lincoln Center

They Told Me Not to Take That Job : Tumult, Betrayal, Heroics, and the Transformation of Lincoln Center
When Reynold Levy became the new president of Lincoln Center in 2002, New York Magazine described the situation he walked in to as a community in deep distress, riven by conflict.” Ideas for the redevelopment of Lincoln Center's artistic facilities and public spaces required spending more than 1.2 billion, but there was no clear pathway for how to raise that kind of unprecedented sum. The individual resident organizations that were the key constituents of Lincoln Centerthe Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Opera, the New York Philharmonic, the Juilliard School, and eight otherscould not agree on a common capital plan or fundraising course of action. Instead, intramural rivalries and disputes filled the vacuum.

Besides, some of those organizations had daunting problems of their own. Levy tells the inside story of the demise of the New York City Opera, the Metropolitan Opera's need to use as collateral its iconic Chagall tapestries in the face of mounting operating losses, and the New York Philharmonic's dalliance with Carnegie Hall.

Yet despite these and other challenges, Levy and the extraordinary civic leaders at his side were able to shape a consensus for the physical modernization of the sixteen-acre campus and raise the money necessary to maintain Lincoln Center as the country's most vibrant performing arts destination. By the time he left, Lincoln Center had prepared itself fully for the next generation of artists and audiences.

They Told Me Not to Take That Job is more than a memoir of life at the heart of one of the world's most prominent cultural institutions. It is also a case study of leadership and management in action. How Levy and his colleagues triumphantly steered Lincoln Centerthrough perhaps the most tumultuous decade of its history to a startling transformationis fully captured in his riveting account.

The No Asshole Rule: Building a Civilised Workplace and Surviving One That Isn't (Paperback)

The No Asshole Rule: Building a Civilised Workplace and Surviving One That Isn't (Paperback)
When the Harvard Business Review asked Robert Sutton for suggestions for its annual list of Breakthrough Ideas he told them that the best business practice he knew of was 'the no asshole rule'. Sutton's piece became one of the most popular articles ever to appear in the HBR. Spurred on by the fear and despair that people expressed the tricks they used to survive with dignity in asshole-infested places the revenge stories that made him laugh out loud and the other small wins that they celebrated against mean-spirited people Sutton was persuaded to write THE NO ASSHOLE RULE. He believes passionately that civilised workplaces are not a naive dream that they do exist do bolster performance and that widespread contempt can be erased and replaced with mutual respect when a team or organisation is managed right. There is a huge temptation by executives and those in positions of authority to overlook this trait especially when exhibited by so-called producers but Sutton shows how overall productivity suffers when the workplace is subjected to this kind of stress.

The One-Page Financial Plan : A Simple Way to Be Smart About Your Money

The One-Page Financial Plan : A Simple Way to Be Smart About Your Money
Whenever I tell people about my job as a financial advisor, the conversation inevitably turns to how hopeless they feel when it comes to dealing with money. More than once, they’ve begged, “Just tell me what to do.”

It’s no surprise that even my most successful friends feel confused or paralyzed. Even if they have a shelfful of personal finance books, they don’t have time to make sense of all the information available. They don’t just want good advice, they want the best advice—so rather than do the “wrong thing,” they do nothing. Their 401(k) and bank statements pile up, unexamined or maybe even unopened.

What they don’t realize is that bad calls about money aren’t failures; they’re just what happens when emotional creatures have to make decisions about the future with limited information. What I tell them is that we need to scrap striving for perfection and instead commit to a process of guessing and making adjustments when things go off track. Of course we’re going to make the best guesses we can—but we’re not going to obsess over getting them exactly right.

The fact is, in a single page you can prioritize what you really want in life and figure out how to get there. That’s because a great financial plan has nothing to do with what the markets are doing, what your real estate agent is pitching, or the hot stock your brother-in-law told you about. It has everything to do with what’s most important to you.

By now you may be wondering, “What about the details? How much do I need to invest each year, and how do I allocate it? How much life insurance do I need?” Don’t worry: I’ll cover those topics and many more, sharing strategies that will take the complexity out of them.

The most important thing is getting clarity about the big picture so you can cope with the unexpected. Maybe you’ll lose the job you thought was secure; you’ll take a financial risk that doesn’t pan out; you’ll have twins when you were only budgeting for one. In other words: Life will happen.

But no matter what happens, this book will help you bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to go.

Thats How the Game Goes

Thats How the Game Goes
Some people want money. Some want power. Some want respect. Most want it all! To have it all you have to be willing to do whatever it takes to get it. Once you get it you have to be willing to do even more to keep it! Jay-r is a kingpin in the streets of Philly. He's made more money in the street than he will probably ever be able to spend in a lifetime. There's just one problem. He's addicted to the street life and has no plans to ever quit hustling, even though at this point he's just doing it out of habit because he doesn't really need the money. This causes problems between him and Taneka, his kid's mother. Taneka is tired of the life they live and she wants out, with or without him. Jay-r decides to give the game up in order to make her happy and keep his family together. He puts his money and energy into the rap group he manages M.O.E. Once he puts his hustler's mentality into the music business things take off quickly and M.O.E are on their way to the top, but old beefs resurface and new ones develop and the streets aren't ready to let them go just yet. Jay-r and his team prepare for one last war to put an end to all beefs once and for all! The drama in the streets bring the FEDS and once the FEDS get involved everyone's loyalty to the team is tested. They find themselves in a war in the streets and trying to stay out of the FEDS grasp, while trying to make music at the same time. Will Jay-r and M.O.E be able to make it out of the game or become another statistic in the streets of North Philly'................... Coupe is coming home from prison after being locked up 15 years. He was locked up for putting in work for the hood and he feels that the hood owes him something when he gets home. He doesn't get the welcome home he was expecting and he's feeling some type of way about it. Nobody from the old days are around anymore and the hood is controlled by a new generation. Coupe wants his respect and he wants his hood back. He rounds up whats left of the older cats in the hood that are still alive that he knew before he went away and recruits some youngins to his team. Coupe goes straight to work extorting anyone who isn't down with his team. He takes the hood back by force, killing anyone who refuses to pay him "hood tax." Coupe plans to branch out and take over the whole city of Philadelphia, but some people just ain't having it! An all out war erupts in the street for control of the hood!............. Ki Ki has been on her own since she was a teen. She learned the ways of the streets quickly and now as an adult she has perfected her game. Ki Ki wants to live life like a baller. Or at least have people think that she is. She does whatever it takes to maintain her baller status. She steals, robs, and sleeps with numerous dudes for money. She will do anything to make a buck and until she finds a man that can finance her expensive lifestyle she is going to continue to do what she does best.....trick and steal. She has become an expert on getting dudes sprung on her sex and head game. She thinks she has finally hooked a big fish when she gets with Jay-r. She knows very well what he could do for her. After they start spending lots of time together she mistakes lust for love. In her mind she is in the perfect relationship. When Jay-r goes back to Taneka Ki Ki is heartbroken. She feels that she's been played and she promises revenge! She told him once before "Don't ever try to cross me." Now she is going to show him exactly what she meant by that!............ Federal District Attorney Harper wants out of Philadelphia. He wants to be in D.C. with the power players so he can advance his career into something bigger like politics. As far as he is concerned Philly is to small a market for him to get his career to where he wants it to be. He's sure that if he can make one big R.I.CO drug case against a major kingpin it will put him on the fast track to D.C. He will do anything to make that case happen!

Street Freak: Money and Madness at Lehman Brothers

Street Freak: Money and Madness at Lehman Brothers
When Jared Dillian joined Lehman Brothers in 2001, he fulfilled a life-long dream to make it on Wall Street—but he had no idea how close to the edge the job would take him.

Like Michael Lewis’s classic Liar’s Poker, Jared Dillian’s Street Freak takes readers behind the scenes of the legendary Lehman Brothers, exposing its outrageous and often hilarious corporate culture.

In this ultracompetitive Ivy League world where men would flip over each other’s ties to check out the labels (also known as the “Lehman Handshake”), Dillian was an outsider as an ex-military, working-class guy in a Men’s Wearhouse suit. But he was scrappy and determined; in interviews he told potential managers that, “Nobody can work harder than me. Nobody is willing to put in the hours I will put in. I am insane.” As it turned out, on Wall Street insanity is not an undesirable quality.

Dillian rose from green associate, checking IDs at the entrance to the trading floor in the paranoid days following 9/11, to become an integral part of Lehman’s culture in its final years as the firm’s head Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) trader. More than $1 trillion in wealth passed through his hands, but at the cost of an untold number of smashed telephones and tape dispensers. Over time, the exhilarating and explosively stressful job took its toll on him. The extreme highs and lows of the trading floor masked and exacerbated the symptoms of Dillian’s undiagnosed bipolar and obsessive compulsive disorders, leading to a downward spiral that eventually landed him in a psychiatric ward.

Dillian put his life back together, returning to work healthier than ever before, but Lehman itself had seemingly gone mad, having made outrageous bets on commercial real estate, and was quickly headed for self-destruction.

A raucous account of the final years of Lehman Brothers, from 9/11 at its World Financial Center offices through the firm’s bankruptcy, including vivid portraits of trading-floor culture, the financial meltdown, and the company’s ultimate collapse, Street Freak is a raw, visceral, and wholly original memoir of life inside the belly of the beast during the most tumultuous time in financial history. In his electrifying and fresh voice, Dillian takes readers on a wild ride through madness and back, both inside Lehman Brothers and himself.
