Sage advice from the OG, SG

https://www.advisorperspectives.com/articles/2017/10/16/how-to-meet-really-rich-people

i was going to bump an old Sara G to tha Rillo thread, but there were so many to choose from, I thought I’d start another one. 

Warren Buffett, George Soros, and SG

"When what I'm doing isn't working, that's when I'll take your criticisms." -- Me, some time ago

Models and bottles. Might be attending maxim Halloween party at Hollywood Hills. Friend getting table!! B4ng3rs

I love my cheese. I got to have my cheddar.

This woman is insane. The first line of the biography on her website says “I am the #1 business writer in New York City, and one of the top business writers in the world.” Even at the height of dishonesty, only extreme self delusion could cause here to believe that anyone would take this statement seriously. Also, the article that G pasted is in reference to Sara’s FA practice, which went out of business.

Bottom line - I’m counting down to the Sara Grillo Bang Bus special episode.

That can’t be a real bio….

We’re gonna win so much, you may even get tired of winning. And you’ll say, 'Please, please. It’s too much winning. We can’t take it anymore. Mr. President, it’s too much.' And I’ll say, 'No, it isn’t!' We have to keep winning!

Thanks for the reminder.

In order to be fair—she did get an undergrad from Harvard and an MBA from NYU. Her academic credentials are higher than 99% of the planet, including me.

I might not be as much of an AF long-timer, so I don’t remember this. But I took the bait and clicked on it. It only took a few seconds into the video before a wave of profound sadness washed over me, leaving me with a sinking sense of depression that I could not shake.

What’s the matter, DOW?  Don’t like videos of girls taking off their clothes and dancing wildly, slinging their hair?  

Just talking about it makes me want to watch it again.

I respect it. Only people truly confident with themselves can do this.

Well, Greenie, under ordinary circumstances your description is enticing. However, when the girl in question is this one, awkwardly gyrating in an under-furnished and bleak apartment with toddler toys in the background on a grainy webcam, I just get…existentially despondent.

Jesus…

Hey Hamilton, have a holly jolly Christmas.

^ average what?

this chick belongs in the looney bin. shes a victim of her own imagined sleight

apparently business insider wrote an article on her bc she was on a “mission to rid the world of 30% of its male CFAs” (this article was wrote in 2010). she met a random girl on the subway and said

“She was having a really tough time with a guy giving her trouble and I looked at her and I said, ‘look, you don’t need this guy. You can do so much better than this. Now let me teach you about stocks.’

talk about being devoid of social skills

I'll turn this damn bus around.

Looks like she worked at Rochdale Investments for 2.5 years and then chose to move to Lehman on 7/17/07. Awesome timing on her part. 

That’s one hell of a leading indicator.

That video was embarrassing to watch. 

Beautiful and intelligent (she makes some good points)!!! Sign me up yes

Dug up these gems lol..

3) Cheapskate boyfriends who apparently deserve to be called out in publications read by millions of people.

Grillo said she and her boyfriend were faced with a choice between a platinum, gold or silver engagement ring. He said he didn’t care which one she chose so long as it was the cheapest. Grillo did care, so she dumped him and invested the money for the wedding in Commercial Metals Co. a small-cap stock that made her as much as 300 percent in profit.

A profile of Grillo, who has both, in Bloomberg, has a clear-cut answer: the CFA. The hedge funder is near-obsessed with her charter.

From Bloomberg:

“I wanted those letters after my name so badly.”

“If it took me 80 years, it was going to say, ‘Sara Grillo, CFA’ on my tombstone.”

She sounds bat**** crazy. I think her ex-boyfriend dodged a bullet there..

I actually agree with all of her “advice” in this article.  

But is this really the type of advice that you would expect from the top business writer in NYC?  “Avoid platitudes and banalities.”?   ”Be different from the other guys somehow.”?

I look forward to Ohai and DoW’s comments.

I think that this is someone who believes her skills and intelligence are far higher than the objective reality.

Greenman- see if she’s available to help you develop a marketing plan for your new venture. Maybe the two of you can shoot a video.

Oh no, you don't want to mess with a guy thats riding on a buffalo.

If you had a harvard undergrad and an nyu MBA, this couldve been you. Think about that.
