If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past 20 years, chances are you know who Ryan Seacrest is.

He recalls having to shop in the husky section of department stores and even being teased about his weight several times during childhood. As he grew older he began to adopt a healthier lifestyle and by the time he was a young adult, the weight was gone. During this time he also began working on radio and TV and quickly realized he had to continue making tough food decisions under any circumstance.
It can be difficult to find healthy food in a studio, especially at odd times. To stay in shape, Ryan Seacrest usually finds himself bringing his own homemade lunch to work. Something he never forgets is being on the low end of confidence and then feeling the boost after his transformation; that memory remains one of his biggest daily motivations. He makes it a priority to work out on a daily basis and in his point of view; it’s like an appointment that he’s not allowed to miss. Among his favorite exercises are running, bike riding, and circuit workouts.
Celebrities sometimes appear to have been born with a perfect physique, but that’s not always the case. Ryan Seacrest has gone through his struggle like many of us, and he always looks amazing because he has devoted himself to it. He’s been known to often squeeze a set of push-ups or curls during commercial breaks. If that’s not dedication I don’t know what is.

Over the past 4 decades, business investor Warren Buffett developed and mastered a strategy of investing into businesses that require little investment, does not require massive amounts of additional management and generates revenue mainly because the company holds wealth. Over the past few years, Warren Buffett has decided to change his investment strategy (http://thedailyrecord.com/2018/01/15/gary-d-anderson-stansberry-research/).
Buffett’s current strategy of investing into business that requires him to build the foundation, infrastructure, and management is different from him purchasing business that already have theses systems in place. Historically, Warren Buffett invest into companies such as Apple (AAPL), American Express (AXP), Coca-Cola (KO), Gillette, Walt Disney (DIS), McDonald’s (MCD), Washington Post (GHC), and Wells Fargo (WFC). These companies are stable and with Buffet’s investment can increase their profitability; however by Buffett investing into businesses has that require building new systems, management and structure, his profitability and legacy may be questioned in the future. According to Stansberry Research, two investments that may hurt Buffett the most are Berkshire Hathaway Energy and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (“BNSF”) railroad. These two regulated utilities consumed 44% of Berkshire’s earnings last year (excluding investment income). This is not a common investment practice for Buffett.
The image of the “Great American Businessman” seems to be Buffett’s gift and curse. Great American companies like American Express (AXP), Coca-Cola (KO) and Gillette were great investments. Unfortunately, the concept of investing money to save the American empire may not end with the high profits that Buffett is accustomed. Another questionable investment for Buffett is his estimated investment of around $20 billion in four banks – Wells Fargo, U.S. Bancorp (USB), Bank of New York (BK), and Bank of America (BAC).
The main problem with Buffett’s new investment techniques are that Buffett’s money usually enhances an already stable business; his money normally does not develop a business and provide the unique management skills required to build new or failing businesses says Stansberry Research.
NOTE: Warren Buffett has invested more money into the banking industry that he invested into American Express or Coke. This could lead to trouble for the US banking industry if something happens to Buffett’s wealth. Check out more related articles here on Stansberry Research.
