No matter what sort of game you play, once you have been around the block enough times you are bound to develop a go-to-move. Jordan had his fade away jumper, Mariano Rivera has his cutter,has the corporate raid and Clinton had that thing with his thumb and fist. It is always tempting to go to your go-to-move. It is reliable, it is effective and sometimes it even benefits others and not just your own selfish need to put up more points.
In this case, it can even apply to blog posts. I have neither the consistent skill set, nor the share the wealth mentality to give you guys winning stock picks on a regular basis. But I have seen a lot and have gotten pretty damn good at managing personal risk. No, I can't tell you how to make a million bucks the easy way, but I can damn sure help you keep it once you've got it. This is why my go-to-move is one you would be wise to learn years before you actually have to use it. Some of the greatest investors in the world still have not mastered it.
Though the story of Wall Street octogenarian George Soros and sex puppet girlfriend Adriana Ferreyr is almost literally, yesterday's news...it is another lesson from the don't you dare get married unless you love unmitigated risk manual for saving your pennies from gold digging leeches lurking behind every corner on The Street.
Allegedly, Soros promised Ferreyr a $2 million Manhattan pad and then reneged when they busted up. Now she's suing him for $10 million. Ferreyr also alleges that Soros pimp slapped her and broke her favorite lamp while exclaiming "where mah snacks at Hosephine?!" after a late night rendezvous at her bust down spot. Now this is obviously the type of tabloid trash that may not have even occurred. The actual details of the tale are far less important than the sad reality behind them.
Like many a jilted skank, this chick's trying to cash in on her cookie past its due date of spoilage. It really is irrelevant whether the old geezer promised her anything or not. The crucial factor is that when you are a man with money, any attempt by a woman to rob you will be given credence by a court of law. You may not ultimately pay for it in cash, but in time, stress and effort it certainly will be a costly experience.
This is not a condemnation of women, marriage or relationships. It is just a reminder that we live in tough times and are members of a society which explicitly endorses racketeering tactics via sexual manipulation by anything that walks, shops and bleeds once a month. With more and more attractive young women unable to live the baller byproduct lifestyles which were so recently so readily available to them, even the most meager of the incoming Wall Street analysts can begin to look like a giant prize Marlin to hook, snare, stuff and mount on their walls.
Watch your pockets out there fellas. Things that were once yours, have a funny way of becoming ours.
