Ben's first babysitter writes a best seller.
When we visited her house I was constantly amazed at shelf after shelf of books that surrounded a comfortable chair in her living room. She read constantly and, even in her early 20's, was fascinated by financial markets, commodities markets and especially equities markets. I cast her in one of the first commercial videos I produced and I used her in several ads and editorial projects.
And when Ben was born she volunteered to babysit for us and.....was Ben's very first babysitter.
She moved out of Austin over a decade ago and is one of the brains behind the Motley Fool financial website. And, she's written a book. And I am certain it will be a good book on at least two levels.
First, it will be a rare product. A very well written book that will reward avid readers with elegant and addictive prose. Second, it will teach people how to invest for the long term......from the view point of a successful investor. The book is entitled, Warren Buffett Invests Like a Girl, And Why You Should Too.
I've pre-ordered it from Amazon.com because everything Lou Ann ever told me turned out to be right.

And yes, she was a great babysitter.
