Yesterday Lisa and I played hooky from the law firm and caught the late afternoon showing of “The Big Short”. The movie is about the 2008 financial crisis through the eyes and stories of four unorthodox investors regarding the fraudulent mortgage-lending practices of large Wall Street banks.
I left the movie with a renewed appreciation of something my dad taught me long ago. That is, when an expert tells you to jump, don’t ask “how high?” Instead respond with the question “why?” and then always do your own due diligence.
During this morning’s Periscope, I share my thoughts about listening to and interacting with experts, influencers and even lawyers…
I think “Throw Back Thursdays” are so much fun because we all get to see and share old pics, and memories, on social media.
Today on #Periscope I invited my audience to share their favorite #TBTBizTip (Throw Back Thursday Business Tip) with all of us on Twitter using #TBTBizTip. Later today I’m going to pick my favorite #TBTBizTip and send the lucky winner a $25 dollar Amazon Gift card.
There are several rules and requirements so check out this morning’s periscope for all the details. Now, have fun and share your favorite #TBTBizTip on Twitter including my name @MitchJackson and hashtag #TBTBizTip 🙂
This morning I wasn’t able to get any work done until I got this off my chest.
It bothers me that over the next 100 years we could lose 50% of all species on Earth. What also deeply affected me was learning that each day, 250,000 sharks are killed for their fins and to make shark fin soup. That’s almost 100,000,000 sharks killed each year!
Don’t even get me started on the Manta Rays, pollution and wasted resources.
Please do me a favor and watch the movie and visit the website. Connect with me if you’d like to get involved. Share all of the site’s pictures, videos and resources on social. Use #RacingExtinction #StartWith1Thing and follow @RacingXtinction on Twitter.
