Chicken Soup for the Soul: A Comprehensive Look At The Business


  • This is my comprehensive follow-up to my original CSSE article, originally written on April 1st, but shared with free site readers on April 5th.
  • As that free site piece was poorly timed, I decided to share this piece, given the significant amount of time invested synthesizing and then crafting this piece.

A career wanderer and journeyman, with a passion for deep value and contrarian investing.

Favorite quotes:

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” (Author - Patanjali)

“Tentative efforts lead to tentative outcomes. Therefore, give yourself fully to your endeavors. Decide to construct your character through excellent actions and determine to pay the price of a worthy goal. The trials you encounter will introduce you to your strengths. Remain steadfast...and one day you will build something that endures: something worthy of your potential.” (Author - Epictetus)

"Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible." (Author - Unknown)

"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me." (Author - Erma Bombeck)
