Vote Now! MarketWatch’s "Next Great Investing Columnist" Contest


VOTE NOW!  I entered an article in MarketWatch’s "Next Great Investing Columnist" contest.  Vote for it by clicking on the Facebook "Like" button.  There are many great entries, and the top vote getters will head to a second round with a third and final round in November. The winner gets a six month contract to write as a columnist for MarketWatch, an affiliate of the Wall Street Journal.

Here’s the full link:  http://blogs.marketwatch.com/great-columnist/2011/10/19/finding-shelter-in-financial-storms/

The article draws heavily from my experiences in Thailand in the midst of flooding. The floods are a good analogy for the recent swings in the world’s financial markets, with both flood victims and investors looking for shelter. The article offers some concrete suggestions to investors on how they can stay afloat during financial turbulence.

Thanks for reading my article and for your support!
