Quote: Donald Trump on Entrepreneurship

“Money was never a big motivation for me, except as a way to keep score. The real excitement is playing the game.”
- Donald Trump, “Trump: Art of the Deal”

P.S. Trump’s new book, How To Get Rich, is excellent. On par with Trump: The Art of the Deal which has been one of my favorite business books for many years.

Donald Trump knows his real estate business, I’m not sure he has expertise on any other business area.

Mr Trump, My husband and I have been married for 20 yrs I just turned 39, we have 2 wonderful boys we are raising, and we have worked hard at buying homes, renting, selling, remodeling. We had done pretty well, we do purchase your books and read and try to follow advice, we wanted to work hard and are children maybe to have a little easier, they have worked right along with us.  I am wondering if you know what exactly is going on with the market today, My husband does mortgages and now all these banks are closing and this is first time i am looking back in my life and seeing everything we worked for disappear.  we own 2 homes and 1 were living in is not paid off but we are keeping our mortgage up to date, I am soo scared because consumers are loosing there homes, our home we went in assumption we could sell in 2 years make the money, but amortization mortgages are not good after 2 years we will owe more than the home is worth with interest rates, we owe more now than what its worth are credit is perfect never late vehicles paid for other 2 homes paid for. What would you do if you were in this situation.example ( loan 445,000.000 owe now 460,000. ) i feel its a loosing battle, I know you are very knowledgeable on realastate.  Thank You

Dear Mr. Trump,

I would like to hear your thoughts on giving Pete Rose a second chance. Likewise doesn’t Miss Nevada deserve the same consideration. You are in a position to effect change for the good of baseball and for equal and fair treatment by all with your simple words of your belief in second chances. Please follow through.

I’m anticipating his next book -> “How to Run a Casino Business to the Ground”.  Not many people are aware that his Hotel/Casino busines is on the verge of chapter 11 and they have voted him out.  You could say he has been “fired”.
