A Newsletter and a Classic Comedy

Newsletter: Bottom Line Personal.  As I have touched on previously, I firmly believe that total well-being involves more than just fiscal fitness.  It involves mental, physical and spiritual fitness as well.  This newsletter hits on all those areas.  As noted by the editor, this semi-monthly newsletter seeks to provide the best information, from the most knowledgeable sources in the world,Bottom Line Personal to help readers gain greater wealth, better health, more wisdom, extra time, and increased happiness. Each issue is packed with useful information you can digest quickly and easily; and start applying to your everyday life.  A friend recently brought this newsletter to my attention – actually, he did more than that as he gifted me a subscription – and I heartily recommend that SavvyReaders pick up their subscription today.


Movie: Trading Places (1983).  In this John Landis-directed comedy, the manager of a commodities broker firm (Dan Aykroyd) and a street hustler (Eddie Murphy) trade lots in life, all at the whim of two wealthy old geezers (Ralph Bellamy and Don Ameche) who make a bet on which one will crack first.  Once the two beleaguered gentlemen catch wind of the real reason behind their changing fortunes, they hatch a very complicated plan to get rich through the stock market, while also taking the old geezers down.  A great comedy played out in the commodities exchange.

  1. That is a great newsletter. I saw one recently and they have EVERYTHING in there. Very informative, to the point stories and quick reads. And of course, who wouldn’t like Trading Places. Love Eddie Murphy. Although this is a comdedy and an extreme case, it is crazy what money can do to people’s lives.

  2. I’ll be looking into a subscription soon. I’m always open to more education.

    • It is absolutely well worth it. Each issue is packed with lots of useful information that can be used on a daily basis.
