In my latest writing project @poetryinfinance, I will be reviewing books that relate to the finance sector and looking for poems in the way we think, behave and operate in the economic world. Specifically, I will be looking at new nonfiction titles on personal finance, global macroeconomics, and US economic issues, and I may even review fiction that discusses economic and class issues. For my first review, I chose My Story of Money and Misogyny at Goldman Sachs by Jamie Fiore Higgins, which was released last August 2023. (I’m a big fan of reading last year’s titles as we have a better chance of finding them in a more cost-effective paperback version and there are usually fewer requests at the public library). Watch my video on Instagram. And please follow me if you find these literary finance topics interesting.
The Instagram caption reads:
Takeaways from Bully Market: My Story of Money and Misogyny at Goldman Sachs by Jamie Fiore Higgins.
I’m very excited to share my first book review with you on #poetryinfinance. Here’s my 3 takeaways at this Thursday closing bell:
1. Reputation is everything. I almost wish that it wasn’t.
2. If you find yourself in a toxic environment, create a ✨spreadsheet of freedom. ✨
3. After seeing this book explode in popularity and its successful marketing plan that made you see this book everywhere, I think it’s safe to conclude that we need more firsthand personal narratives. If you work in business and finance, write your story. Let’s go!
My video might be a little long, and I think I encountered a bug where I can’t make edits past 1 minute 30 seconds, but I’m here to learn. Please don’t take this as financial advice. I have not taken the FINRA. This is for entertainment purposes only, and please do your due diligence before following any financial advice. Hope you enjoy. More books to come! Now is the time to write your story.
My goal in the near future will be to also provide closed captioning. I will also make the videos shorter. I’m also currently building a website version, but for now I’ll post updates here.
