NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- When it comes to my investments and due diligence - much of which I am privileged to share with you in my writing -- nobody is harder on me than I am on myself. Allow me to just get that out of the way.However, I do understand that being the public figure that I have become certainly draws its share of criticism. Sometimes I take it with a grain of salt and other times . . . well, let's just say being wrong and being reminded by readers that you were wrong has a way of humbling a person. It introduces doubt about one's own ability to do that which he thinks he is good at -- I hope that made sense.
