Hi, I’m Brett Owens – and I’m a financial junkie.  My “problem” started incollege, when I got a little dose of the stock market – man, was I hooked…in no time, I was reading the Wall Street Journal religously.

After graduation, I also “graduated” to following less traveled publications, stuff you couldn’t find in the mainstream.  I then started trading commodities in 2005 – fortunately ahead of the big crowd – after reading Jim Rogers’ classic book, Hot Commodities.

Along the way, I’ve had a lot of fun – I’ve made some nice money, I’ve lost big too – and I’ve come to a couple of conclusions:

  1. You have to invest opposite the mainstream to make any money, and
  2. I really dig sarcastic financial coverage

So on this blog, I try to dig up stories that fulfill one or both.  I hope you enjoy, and that you’ll sign up for our free daily newsletter.

Finally, this blog is a labor of love more than anything.  My “day job” is running a time tracking software startup called Chrometa – we’ve got a really cool cutting edge app that captures your time automatically.  I really enjoy and benefit from the balanced perspective that I get in the day-to-day trenches of early stage entrepreneurship.  If only the jokers running our nation into the ground had similar types of experience!
