The average privacy policy contains 2,514 words and takes 10 minutes to read, according to an article published on and found on Twitter by Sam Tabar.

Tabar, whose handle is @samirtabar, further discovered that if people were paid to read these privacy policies, the total would equal more than the gross domestic product of Florida. In all, the total time spent would equal 53.8 billion hours.

Each billion hours is 114,079 years long, so if you were to travel forward in time that far you would be in the year 6709861, assuming people still used the same calendar. If each person would read the privacy policies, then it would take them 25 full days each year.

Even if you do not choose to read privacy statements, they play a very important role. First, they force a company to think about how they want to use a person’s data. Secondly, they force the entity to be accountable for the data that they collect. Tabar knows that most consumers, however, will never read the privacy statements because they have much more important things to do like play on Facebook.

Today’s volatile investment market presents uncertainty and unpredictable developments. Any investor who fails to acknowledge this has the least chance of reaching appreciable returns. Investment market tycoon, Brad Reifler continues to mentor those chasing financial security opportunities. In fact, he consults for an estimated ninety-nine percent of investors. What does Reifler encourage investors to exercise when playing with capital markets? Firstly, he’s emphasized how crucial it is to assess financial risk factors, expenditures, and fees when staking money on stocks. Importantly, he recommends creating goals and keeping an inventory of all portfolio assets. How safe is the money? Investors shouldn’t contract financial firms that have a questionable background, Reifler advises in a Reuters piece. Another colossal investing error he’s pointed out is putting every penny on stocks, especially when courting a single commodity.

From Reifler also insisted on investors establishing a reason to pursue financial markets. It’s the foremost decision all investors should take the time to deliberate on thoroughly. Amidst concerns that require careful consideration are the initial investment and goal. Furthermore, he’s highlighted diversification as a formidable investment tool to generate higher returns. Commodity, hedge, and public funds investment opportunities aren’t extended to the significantly populous ninety-nine percent market share. It’s reserved for the mere one-percent of privileged, wealthy investors. Having tasted success as a prominent investment banking connoisseur, Reifer is empowering the growing ninety-nine percent. He’s survived the disappointment of losing money to underperforming stocks and investment opportunities. So, he understands the struggles of ambitious investors that need to share in the wealth of profitable markets. Without the expertise and knowledge, it’s unfeasible for them to invest intelligently.

For ninety-nine percenters wondering what indiscretions cause this problem? Reifler recommends cross-checking financiers’ profile carefully and selecting a reputed investment manager for wealth management. Additionally, he’s suggested lucrative compound investing strategies to increase returns. So, perhaps micro investing could gradually convert into substantial returns with long-term commitment. Too long have investors buy into unreasonable investment transactions that yield the least profitable returns. Certainly, today’s complex stock investment market requires a wealth of knowledge and expertise. Reifler himself manages an investment banking boutique, namely Forefront Management Group, LLC. He established the group in 2009 and currently operates as chief executive. Under the Forefront Group umbrella, Reifler controls a group of subsidiaries. These all consult for wealth management, investment advisory, banking and more. With thirty-something years operating independently, Reifler opened multiple companies before launching Forefront Management Group. reported that Brazil is a country of border to border small businesses. Turn any direction and point a finger in any Brazilian city and you are almost certainly pointing to some company wholly owned by one family. So it is that there is no shortage of business advice in Brazil; for a nominal fee, that is. Most citizens seem to have developed their own strategies in business. But, mostly they boil down to the age old adage: ‘if you will scratch my back, I will scratch yours.’ So, the average business advice most people are equipped to offer is, well, average.

Igor Cornelsen is a rare exception to this seeming rule in South America. He has quite valuable business advice, based upon a massive knowledge base of business acumen he has amassed over the years. Some say he must have psychic abilities when they see his mastery of professional networking and in his business dealings. Not the least of his vast knowledge is a thorough understanding of the dizzying array of sub-cultures Brazil encompasses. With the use of his many talents and amazing depth of knowledge, Mr. Cornelsen has developed great working relationships with the elite and connected. He calls it being connected with the natives.

In South American exporting Igor Cornelsen is known as a risk taker that usually wins in his investments. This is especially true for his agricultural sector holdings. He has become a key person in Brazilian exports. His reputation proceeds him like a legend for anyone looking into starting and succeeding at small business in Brazil. His advice is quite valuable and based on long and widely diverse experience.

Mr. Cornelsen does not just catch fish for people. He works to educate his clients to learn to fish effectively for themselves. His clients are required to study detailed profiles of business sectors and individual companies they are interested in. This study is absolutely required by him for any foreign clients.

Those that ask Igor Cornelsen how he went about becoming the sage adviser, he replies, “Be ready for some red tape. Those who make informed decisions and put the work in are the ones who will see the big payoffs in the end.”
