It is hard to imagine the devastation of entire cities, but for centuries this is nothing new. My thoughts are with the people that are suffering, but I know that life will go on for these people. I was watching Mad Money with Jim Cramer yesterday and boy that guy only sees money. Which in business I guess is key. In your private life you can care and have compassion but in the business world, you can only care about profits, loses and legalities that may affect either.
This got me to thinking. As a real estate investor, can you imagine the damage that has been done to properties? Now, using the Mad Money mentality, can you imagine the awesome deals that are to be had in the region? Profiting off of other people's misery may be very cruel, but when you think in black and red, you can see opportunities clearly.
Lastly, I am so tired of the media's sensationalism when it comes to reporting money. " The government is spending 30 billion for this" " The hurricane damage may be $25 billion for this" I wish they would stop with such misleading reporting. The Wynn Casino in Las Vegas cost well over 3 billion to build and that is one building. You must think to yourself, billion is slowly becoming the new million. Stop telling yourself, if I only made a million I would.... Think bigger than your mind constrains you.
