Know Thyself: Hip-Hop Style

Here we go again
Everybody sayin’ what’s not for him
But everything I’m not
Made me everything I am

—Kanye West, "Everything I Am"

I know you probably don’t see me as a hip-hop music fan, and to be honest with you, I am not. But when a friend of mine told me that the above lyrics by Grammy Award winning rapper Kanye West reminded him of me, well, needless to say I was quite flattered. You see, when it comes to life, knowing yourself is often a matter of knowing what you are not. I am never going to be the best numbers cruncher, nor will I be the best stock picker out there. What I am, however, is a man with a plan. A plan that’s been helping investors beat the market for over three decades. I’d also like to think I’m man who can translate this whole investing thing into an easily understood enterprise. Hey, you can’t be everything in life, so remember that everything you’re not makes you everything you are.
