Imagine you’re invisible. When others make decisions or offer services, they don’t acknowledge you. Your voice isn’t heard. This invisibility confers upon you two things: an existence where those around you don’t acknowledge your presence or your contributions, and an exis- tence where you can’t find help to solve your challenges and become “un-invisible.”

thinking is all about being aware of how you think about economic issues so
that you can make the best decisions possible. All of us engage in economic

Effective communication is more than just talking or giving advice. It involves
asking questions, listening carefully, trying to understand a patient’s worries or
needs, demonstrating a caring attitude, and helping to solve problems. Good
communication begins when the health worker sees the patient promptly, addresses
the patient by name, and offers a comfortable place for the patient to sit. It
continues as the health worker makes eye contact, speaks in a respectful tone of
voice, and encourages the patient to ask questions.

In Kenya, small grant awardee Safe Womanhood
Organization (SWH) held a large-scale pneumonia
awareness event for Somali and Oromo
refugees of Eastleigh residing in Nairobi. These

or to engage with neighboring communities.
Thus, SWH designed an event to
empower them to engage in intervention methods
addressing the high rates of infant mortality
within the population.
Lessons from The Successful Investor has been a surprise success. I wrote Lessons From The Successful Investor immediately after graduating from the University of Waterloo, having been constantly asked by friends, family, co-workers and acquaintances to consolidate my value investing knowledge into a neat package for easy consumption.

Initially, downloads of the eBook trickled in.
