Be careful what you wish for because you might get it.

A Few Boring & Not So Obvious Trends That May Help You Find Some Stock Market Winners Post COVID-19
Medium.com
April 14, 2020
Many years ago, when I was home from college one summer, my dad asked me if I wanted to take a trip to a new store with him. I said, sure. We went into the store, and it was not all that exciting to me, but he commented it was well lit, everyone was friendly, and it looked like people were buying things. That was enough for him to do a little research and purchase stock in a company called Tractor Supply Company. How did it go? Well, if you would have put $10,000 into Tractor Supply and Amazon that same day, which investment would have made you wealthier? Tractor Supply by a nose.

Creative & Appropriate Ways to Use the Payroll Protection Program (PPP)

April 12, 2020
The $349 billion (and perhaps more) Payroll Protection Program (PPP) to help out small businesses rolled out on April 3 after just a few days of organizing the details and sending it to DC for a vote and signing into law. It should come as no surprise that the planning of the PPP, as well as implementation and delivering of funds, has been rife with confusion and frustration.

Very Disturbing Realities are Coming to Life due to COVID-19.
Medium.com
April 10, 2020
It’s far too early to declare victory over COVID-19. However, in the interim, there are many things to celebrate. Projected USA deaths from this wave of the illness are angling towards 60,000. This is far less than the 1,000,000–2,000,000 projected very early in the crisis. New York is allegedly past the point of peak hospital resource usage and daily death tolls. Other states that are showing peak dates later in April or in early May are seeing flatter curves. The CARES Act and PPP program are rolling out (slowly and buggy, unfortunately), but money is being placed into the hands of individuals and small business owners to help soften the blow of this crisis. The country is not out of the woods yet on any front — economically, socially, physically, but the recent and alleged slowdown provides a few moments to think ahead some.

March 27, 2020
Since the COVID-19 crisis began, questions have flooded the minds of businesses, community leaders and individuals. Most questions circle around the potential impacts of the crises across many spectrums. How bad could it get? What can we do to mitigate? When will the situation be over? A recent article from McKinsey & Co., “Safeguarding our lives and our livelihoods: The imperative of our time” provides an excellent framework for evaluating what may be coming next based on how businesses, governments, and people respond.

And there are many studies that suggest this is the case. So, then why does anyone go into an office? It’s simple — working remotely, especially across many times, is very, very hard.

Accountability to Investors & Your Responsibility as a Founder - What The Media Doesn’t Tell You About Raising Early Stage Capital
linkedin
February 05, 2016
A quick search of the news making the headlines about start-ups, entrepreneurs, and early-stage companies is full of excitement. Awards, groundbreaking technology, interviews making the entrepreneur be a superhero (very glamorous), acquisitions, free Super Bowl ads and raising capital to dominate the search results. Exciting stories of raising capital and taking on world’s problems fail to address a very important reality. Being a founder or CEO of a start-up that is taking on investors means your day is about to change – and not because hiring can expand or development can start. But because there is now accountability to deliver results and listen to the new boss(es), the shareholders and board of directors.

Where to Find Your Start-Up’s Next Team Member

January 06, 2016
As a start-up grows, finding the right team members is a crucial part of success. Find the right team, success is that much closer. Hire people that do not fit the entrepreneurial and start-up culture, it is likely the organization will fail or even worse, be in start-up purgatory (e.g., just getting by without growth or any returns to shareholders). It is tough enough finding qualified and skilled candidates for established companies – it is even more challenging in an early stage company.
