You do not need to read Sense on Cents to know that Wall Street and America have problems. That said, the future of both the financial services industry and our nation are inextricably linked.

The innovative ideas which our nation must generate to drive future growth and employment require capital. Wall Street has that capital. In my opinion, Wall Street needs to seriously refine the use of its capital for its own benefit and that of our nation.

There is no doubt we are navigating a challenging, if not treacherous, economic landscape. As with any challenging trip, prudence dictates we utilize all resources at our disposal. That said, there is no resource more valuable than that of experience. Whether involved in the markets or other business pursuits, the ability to gain the wisdom of those who have gone before us is priceless.

In this spirit, I am a huge proponent of the merits and benefits of mentoring. What greater gift can one give than the sage advice garnered from one’s experience. There is no greater gift for a businessperson than to point the way forward for future generations.

As we continue to navigate our current economic landscape and the peaks and valleys along the way, I am honored to have Bill Venezia join me this Sunday evening (8-9pm ET) on No Quarter Radio’s Sense on Cents with Larry Doyle.
