I have recently discussed the importance of having a routine, and setting goals for my children while we are all home fighting the spread of COVID-19. I am going to use this time to get more physically fit, do more strategic thinking, and read more books. The three books I plan to read this month are:
“Can’t Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds” by David Goggins. Obviously, we can all use some mindset help right now.
“Barrio America: How Latino Immigrants Saved the American City” by A. K. Sandoval-Strausz. I have been meaning to read this book for a while, and I think the timing might now be perfect. Latinos have helped our country pull out of past economic crises, and I’m pretty sure Latinos will do the same this time around.
“The Back Roads to March: The Unsung, Unheralded, and Unknown Heroes of a College Basketball Season” by John Feinstein. For those of us who love college basketball and are struggling without March Madness, this book should be a fun read.
Almost everyone, including Democrats, were expecting last Tuesday’s midterm election results to heavily favor Republicans. Many predicted a “red wave” where they would pick up 50-60 seats in the House and 3-4 in the Senate. Joe Rogan said the red wave that is coming will be like the elevator doors opening in the horror film The Shining.
It has been long understood that a nation of stakeholders makes for a strong union, and for that reason, closing the minority homeownership gap has been a goal and a topic of discussion for decades.
International business executive Sol Trujillo emphasizes the necessity of “running with” one’s own ideas to Gary Acosta as he recounts his road from just beginning in the telecom industry to co-founding L’ATTITUDE.
Investment banker and venture capitalist Martin Cabrera shares his origin story and talks about how Latinos are breaking into traditionally exclusive wealth building opportunities and changing lives.
