It’s official. On Sept. 26th, I start as a Contributing Editor at Barron’s, America’s premier financial magazine (owned by Dow Jones). I am once again working with my old buddy and one of the most talented and decent fellows in American journalism today: Barron’s president and editor, Ed Finn. An added bonus is the fact I will also be working with an old Forbes colleague, Fleming Meeks, and a new colleague, Phil Roosevelt, plus many other talented folk. Even my old fishing buddy, Jack Willoughby, is at Barron‘s.
Ed and the others asked me to come on board to help build-out Penta, Barron‘s personal affairs magazine. Penta, well-edited by Phil, is a fantastically fun and engaging publication that I can say, with all sincerity, I enjoy and want to be associated with. Highest quality, beautiful writing, terrifically fun subjects – and a franchise that I believe has huge upside potential. As the Buddhist monk, Reverend Oda, lead character in my upcoming novel Buddhaland Brooklyn, might say, “This is good omen.”
