Tim Moore – Challenging What You Thought You Knew About Investing

Club member Tim Moore was the speaker at our regular club meeting yesterday and presented a program which quite literally challenged the status quo thinking about investing in the stock market for many  “small” investor’s. 

Tim has a long history as a financial advisor, beginning his career at a large Wall Street investment firm where he was taught to sell products such as mutual funds and annuities.  Over the course of time, Tim realized that the products and practices of wealth management didn’t provide sufficient growth opportunities for the middle class. The middle class can’t invest more, so they need to earn more.

Wealth management is great for the rich, the middle class need “wealth creation opportunities.”  Tim takes the Warren Buffett quote to heart, “Diversification is protection from ignorance, and it makes little sense if you know what you’re doing.” 

Warren Buffett knows, what academia has verified, that owning a handful of the “RIGHT” stocks, is the best way to build wealth for the future.  What Tim refers to as wealth creation accounts. For many, that can mean owning shares in companies where we spend our money, such as “Amazon, Apple, Home Depot, Netflix, Starbucks and a host of others. 

A convincing argument was made, comparing portfolios returns of individual stocks to index funds over same time periods.  He also spoke about how labor generates income, while ownership generates wealth.

Displaying not only a deep knowledge base on this topic, Tim is also passionate about educating and empowering people, so that they may have more control over their destiny.  He’s been “preaching” this message at his church and at Rotary and in other groups at no cost because he so strongly believes in his message and his mission. 

There’s a “wealth” of information available on Tim’s LinkedIn profile “Moore Money Academy”

Tinker Bell Talks-Margaret Kerry to Speak at Monrovia Rotary

The Monrovia Rotary Club is excited to have Margaret Kerry as our featured speaker at our regular club meeting on Tuesday June 19, 2018.

Margaret Kerry has been in the entertainment business for decades beginning with her appearances in The Little Rascals followed by 37 major motion pictures. Well known as an outstanding tap dancer she was co-host of an early musical TV show and was also cast in a pioneer ABC network family sitcom, The Charlie Ruggles Show which aired for five years. After playing the daughter of Eddie Cantor in the RKO musical, If You KnewSusie, Disney Studios cast Kerry as the reference model for Tinker Bell. As she was filmed acting out the scenes of this famous sprite for Disney’sPeter Pan, Kerry gave the little fairy her bright, quirky personality. She still travels the U.S. in behalf of Tinker Bell.

Margaret was in early episodes of The Lone Ranger and The Andy Griffith Show but it was while working at Disney Studio, voicing the Red Haired Mermaid in the Lagoon Sequence in Peter Pan, that her love affair with animation began and a long career as a voice over actor in 600 plus cartoons. That includes the long running Clutch Cargo and 179 episodes with The THREE STOOGES. She later produced animation.

Kerry is quite active in behalf of the American art form of animation.  For four years she served on the board of the Animation Society International for the Art (ASIFA-Hollywood Chapter). Through ASIFA, recognition-award shows, programs, Kerry works with animators, voiceover artists, educators and fans alike to raise the profile of the art. 

KKLA 99.5 FM, the Flagship of Salem Communications was Margaret Kerry’s home for 12 years where she produced and hosted the interview show, Ministry Loves Company. Along with writing scores of World Vision spots, voicing radio spots, she also handled the station’s outreach programPoints for Profit by producing and hosting the meetings for dozens of community-volunteer clubs and their members.

She is a Toastmaster and a certified American Seminar Leader and speaks at schools, libraries throughout the country. She has a well-received book out titled, Tinker Bell Talks! Tales of a Pixie Dusted Life. It has many (mostly humorous) short stories. The book begins with a delightful chapter describing how Margaret, in 1933, a dear little four year old, started her career in show business in the Warner Bothers film Mid Summer Night’s Dream … she played a tiny fairy.
