I chose to name this community after a quote that has always stuck with me… In the preface of The Intelligent Investor Warren Buffet wrote: “Walter Lippmann spoke of men who plant trees that other men will sit under. Ben Graham was such a man.”
I’m not sure why I’ve always remembered this quote. Perhaps you could attribute it to my reverence of Mr. Buffet as an Investor/Philanthropist, or maybe its just that I hope to one day plant my own tree that other men will sit under. Either way, it seemed like the right name.
My goal here is to start an open community of like minded individuals who are trying to improve themselves. While I am still on my own journey, I plan to document all that I learn to help others on their path. And I ask you to do the same with your experiences. Share as much as you’d like. You can use your name, a pseudonym, whatever… It doesnt matter as long as you post content that can be of value. In fact, stop reading this post and register for this site right now.
However, if sharing is not your thing; I can understand that. My only goal here is to provide a valuable resource and reach as many people as I can. That’s why all our content is free, because the purpose of this site is to truly help.
Anyway, that’s about it… Not gonna lie, its a bit odd writing for noone since I don’t have any visitors yet. But I’m sure you guys will eventually find your way here. See you soon!
