I wanted to take a quick break from the “Developing Emotional Intelligence” series to alert readers to a live chat taking place tomorrow (September 25). Michelle Singletary — the personal finance columnist for The Washington Post — will be interviewing John Bogle, founder of Vanguard and, most recently, author of Enough: True Measures of Money, Business, and Life.
According to Time Magazine, “It’s hard to imagine a better time to publish a book that advocates moderation, balance and integrity in the business world. In this wise meditation, Bogle, the folk-hero creator of the first index mutual fund and founder of the Vanguard Mutual Fund Group, deplores ‘our worship of wealth and the growing corruption of our professional ethics but ultimately the subversion of our character and values.’”
Go here to tune in to the conversation at 12 pm EST.
Why would does Business EQ recommend a Live Chat with a man who writes about money managers? Because taped to wall above my desk is a slip of paper that says:
“Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want but the realization of what you already have.”
