Business Plans Are So 20th Century

I recently sat down with a fellow millennial who works at a PE(private firm) to discuss a business venture I’ve been mulling for sometime now. I wasn’t seeking validation necessarily of my concepts but just wanted a sounding board to challenge my thinking. And since a key component of my concept would involve raising a fund I thought it would be a very productive conversation. This contemporary of mine agreed that my concept had merit and it wasn’t a concept that a lot of people have been thinking about or if they are aren’t willing to take on the undertaking of the concept.

But then a portion of the conversation turned to next steps and my contemporary offered two actions that I thought was old school and outdated. He suggest that I go to business school and also that I craft a business plan. Let me say this, I have nothing against business schools or business plans. I’ve started two business in my short business career and both times I’ve put together detailed business plans. They are a useful mechanism in some aspects of organization. Though I haven’t been yet to business school, they have produced many a transformational mind and business idea.

However, those are old methods that long kept many an innovational ideas or revolutionary concepts from being fully and fairly concept. For second half of the 20th century you had to be the product of business schools for majority of business concepts to be taken seriously. You need to produce 100 page business plans with pie chart and case study results before your idea was thought to be financial viable. Though these produce methods produced success stories they produced just as many failed attempts.

Don’t let your business idea get caught in this rat race of business schools and business plans, the best form of testing an idea is IMPLEMENTATION!!! The concepts need to be tested thru operations not thru case studies and diagrams. The consumer and the open market will be the best grader of whether this is a sustainable business not course grades.

And when you seek to raise money for your venture don’t let investor slow walk you with that “We’re not in the business of gambling” using that statement as justification of why they need you to have the MBA letter behind your name or the business plan in front of their faces. All business is a risk, and honestly your concept without a full blown business plan laid out has just as much a chance of failure or success as the venture with those items. And I would argue that business plans are actually too rigid! They narrow your ability to pivot and change course if the market or customer tells you that your overall concept is sound but you need to change certain aspects of it. They limit your ability to think like an innovative entrepreneur because investors will expect you not to stray from the original concept of that plan.

Spend less time planning and focus more on implementing. You don’t need more case studies you need more live implementation. You don’t need your head in a book studying hours of course material you need your hands in the dirt building from the ground up.

The Unicorn Effect:IPOs

Time was that the market had a unicorn-A unicorn is a privately held start-up company valued at over $1 billion- once every couple of years, maybe even once a decade or even in a generation. The advancement in technology at the end of the 20th century and early 21st century changed all that. Nowadays, dozens if not hundreds of new “unicorns” pop up every year. And they have a tremendous effect on the market.

In addition to the unicorn, they are two other labels that speaks to the unrealized value of private’s held start-ups. There’s a decacorn, which is the term used for start-up valued at over $10 Billion dollars. And then there’s the rarity of them all, hecacorn, a company that is valued at north of $100 Billion dollars. The highly anticipated IPO of tech darling Uber would be an example of an hecacorn. No matter the name of these company their Initial Public Offerings always shift the needle where investing capital in concerned.

Most IPOs are anchored by big investment banks but more importantly by intuitional investors like pension funds or endowments. And at any given time these organization only have some much money liquid when a new offering is listed, so in order to raise capital to get into new offerings they have to sell existing positions. This will create buying opportunities for investors like you and I in two ways.

The first way is in well established blue chip stocks and consumer brands. Institutional investors are often tied up in names like Apple, Google, Coke-Cola, AT&T and etc. So in the event they require capital to invest in new position they will draw from the well of these companies. This creates a pull back in the shares of these company for no other reason than this large investor is selling some of its position. This create a sizable pull in a fundamentally sound company that otherwise would not exist. The decline grants opening to smaller investors who can snap up those shares at a discount and ride those acquired share to a nice profits.

The flip side to this could be, thought the institutional investor are intrigued by the new IPO security, they might not be willing to part ways with their more established holding that have a trustable track records. As a result there isn’t quite the anticipated demands for the shares of this new listing, at least not initial offer prices and because of that the new security prices decline. Giving smaller investor who would other ways be shut out -by either limited shares or too expensive of a prices offering- the opportunity to get in on one of the hottest IPOs early on the grow floor.

This is the effect of unicorns, decacorns, and especially hecacorns. And by my count this year -specially in the second quarter, starting with Lyft this week- you will have 19 chances to capital of this effect, one way or another. The best advice I can give you is to be vigilant and prepared to make quality mores when they arrived. One other size of this effect the prices will not stay depressed for an extend price of time so they opportunities can be here today and gone the next. Just make sure you have researched any potential stock you are thinking of acquiring and that you have enough capital to set aside to make a meaning profit.

Weekly Update: Manic Monday Email

Greetings Members,

Happy Manic Monday to you all. Hopefully you all are as just as excited as I am about this being the final few days of winter as we transition to spring time. With the break in weather I’m hopefully for a more rosy and dynamic second quarter in the 2019 trading season. The winter session wasn’t exciting catastrophic but it was indeed a mixed bag of results to say the least. 
The most intriguing thing set to come up in the second quarter is the IPOs of some of the biggest tech darlings of the last decade and it will start with the launch of Lyft’s slated $23Billion valuation next week. Though I’m not advocating for us as a collective group to get in on this or any other initial public offerings I do believe they will have a positive effect on the market and some of our other holdings. So I implore that we all be vigilant and deliberate in our position takings. 
Tax Filings Documents
 Below is an update on the status of the 1099s forms and why they haven’t been dispensed as of yet: 
The reason is we don’t have all of your information.  I think I mentioned this in a email a while back but bivio requires both the address and ssn for all members to be input in the system in order to generate the 1099s. 

This is a problem. It is a problem because I don’t think we can get 99 people to act on this within the week, if at all.  100% participation is unrealistic but 100% participation is what is required.  

I have contacted bivio to find out if they have a workaround and if so we will get those forms to you. In the meantime, PLEASE input your information on bivio TODAY!”  


These are the words from our ED about the state of the crucial documents we all need to submit an accurate financial report to the IRS for 2018.  Please be sure to submit your information IMMEDIATELY! For no other reason, you don’t want to cause yourself to be late filing your tax returns nor be the cause of other members being late with theirs either.


Monthly Conference Call

 Our monthly club conference call will take place this coming Friday March 25, 2019, 9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific. For the first time the call maybe be broken up until two separate calls so as to not overlap varying activities within the club by the different the divisions. Definitely on the agenda of things that needs to be discussed Charles and I will discuss whether this month’s call will be the first separate or will we start in April. 
FYI

Tilray is set to report after the close today which should be a good indication about how our investment in the Canadian cannabis producing industry is faring. I honestly don’t know what to expect the industry as I’ve repeated many times is still very much in its young infancy and has no track record of performance, results, or trends. But if I had to take a guess, I’d say it would say that Tilray will follows the trend of the other major Canadian names where production has increase as well as revenues but so has operating expenses. This should be a very interesting report for look out for that after the close.

Weekly Update:Manic Monday Email

Greetings Members,

 Happy Manic Monday to you all! As we have sprung forward an hour in accordance with daylight savings, let us hope that we will also spring forward with the market and its market happenings. Though the market continues to rally, it is despite of the fact the overall all this earning season has been very mediocre. Most company have either just met estimates, missed on one number or another, or missed estimates altogether. I’ve slow to label it correction, a response to global trade tensions, or anything else that seems to be floating around. But we should all closely monitor the trends that continue to take shape. 
  New Today

Harvest Health and Recreation Inc. (HRVSF) said Monday that it plans to buy rival cannabis company Verano Holdings LLC for $850 million in stock. Harvest Health trades on the Canadian Securities Exchange and over the counter in the U.S. and went public in November on the CSE. Harvest Health’s over the counter stock surged more than 12% in Monday trading. This continues the trend of M&A activity that has become the norm within this sector young infancy! This is still a very volatile sector, with no proven track record to compare, but if profits are going to be made in the early days it will come from M&A as well as partnerships with more established brands.


Position Openings


I’m happy to announce that the only has one open position of need for right now. We have had sometime come forward with regards to the membership coordinator position and we’re to get that more focused to offer you all a more smooth experience within the club operations. But we are still in need of a capable individual to help with the Voleo platform so as to bring everyone together on one accord about things that we’re implementing club-wide. If I don’t receive any inquiries I’ll try my best to find someone who is active on the platform who driving conversations and content already to see if they would be willing to take on the role. I’ll keep you posted.

Potential Streaming Play

The streaming industry has become a massive entertainment source over the last 15 years. The biggest movie and television player is well now around the world at this point, Netflix. But there are other comparable competitor such as Hulu and firestick. And in recent years blue chip names like Apple and even Amazon, whose traditional business have no connection to the streaming industry, have announced that they would be launching services into the sector. With such a vast array of offerings it’s easy to think you may have missed a profitable opportunity to invest in a niche growth security that offers tremendous profit values. But I have a play that I think is a good value investment.

Roku sells devices on which consumers can stream content from a range of providers, including stuff its licenses itself and sells advertising against. Users pay for premium content, and Roku gets a cut of those payments. The company also licenses its software equipment manufacturers giving it several ways to access revenue stream. The stock has recovered nicely from its December lows of $30 a share and now sits a nearly $70 per share.

As consumers continue to transition from the traditional entertain avenue of network television that dominant that better part of the twentieth century, the advertising dollars will shift from that platform over to this new expanding avenue. Better still, there’s potential for even more profitable from consumers who would be willing to pay even more of a premium price just to avoid being advertised to at all. I believe that this company is worth further evaluation in consideration to be added to anyone’s portfolio looking for a tech play for diversification.

Weekly Update: Manic Monday Email

Greetings Members,
Happy first Manic Monday of March, in the final month of the 1st investing quarter of 2019. Stock fell today after economic data did not breed confidence in the overall market performance and news of a China-US trade deal cooled out after initially being reported as close to a deal. The Dow was off as much as 200pts at the time that I’m writing this email and is likely to close in that range. As we get deeper and deeper into the candidacies of the 2020 presidential election I expect more and more that the market will react to any policy news that might sway market and thus changing who will have the upper hand in the voting block.
Investment Tragedy: Money’s All In

For weeks I’ve been telling you guys in my weekly update that we would be slowly and methodically moving our financial capital back into the market. And I’m not happy to report that we are finally fully invested back into the market in all the positions that resulted from the group vote back in November. As I stated before I believe in buying the position in spots, not really timing the market, but buying your overall position piece by piece until you are fully invested. I believe I wrote a blog about this exact strategy that you should check out if you haven’t already. 
There is a screenshot attached in this email that will show all our current positions and the value as they stand today. Overall our portfolio is down as of today but we are just starting our second group cycle so we’re not going to worry back daily changes, we’re focused on long-term 18 months to 3 years performance. Now that we have fully invested the initial $50K Capital back into the market we should really ramp back up our monthly contribution so we can add to our positions and maximize our profitability margins. 
Each quarter there will be an overall analysis of our current positions, their performance, and the action that should be taking with each one in the coming quarter. Whether that strategy consist of buying more, holding not buying or selling positions, or selling specific positions, it will be made with the overall benefit of the group in mind. 
Club Operations
As mention before in last week’s email we have a few open positions within the club that will go a long way in regards to the overall functionality and performance of the club if filled. We’re not looking for anyone to have a perfect skillset or any prior experience, just someone who would like to add to the group and help make us the best we can be. So if anyway is willing and interest please do not hesitate to reach out to me so we can bring you into the fold.

Weekly Update: Manic Monday Email

Greetings Members,

Happy Manic Monday to all! This is the last trading week of the month of February, which means we are nearly two-thirds of the way thru the first quarter of 2019. And I have to say, thus far, the trading year of 2019 had been a mixed bag of results. It has been bad but it hasn’t been good either. Though the daily turmoil that occurred during the finals months and quarter of 2018 seem to have halted, there has been a stellar return to that fierce bull market that has become so routine over the last  couple of years. And with the trade war continuing and the presidential primaries starting to take shape we might not for sometime. 
Investment Strategy

After months removed(thankfully because it market volatility) the financial markets 90% of the groups funds have been moved back into security holdings. There’s a little under $6K that I will move into its finally holding this week and then we will be fully invested. I believe our portfolio is both well diversified and positioned to make a profitable run this cycle. Once I make the finally purchase I will give a full explanation of numbers and specifics sector breakdown. But we should be excited about these undertaking that we have gathered and where it will lead us in this investment cycle as a group. 
Club Position Opening

This club’s motto has always been “Group Effort” that no one person alone can make us flourish and reach the heights we all desire in our financial literacy and prosperity. And as we have grown the management of the club has become more intensive and requires the skills of those willing to lend a helping hands. The following are positions that would go a long way to helping with the overall daily operation of the club:
Membership Coordinator
This person would help with the existing membership organization with regards to keeping a accurate headcount. In addition, the Coordinator would answer routine club questions about policies, procedures, and questions that might need further discussion and research 
Voleo Liaison
This position would be a bridge between what’s being discussed in the slack group(the main communication vehicle) and those members who have not transition over from the Voleo. The liaison would relay any inquiries discussed on the Voleo platform back to the Slack group or if its an operation manner to me specifically
This is only a brief description if you are an interested person in either of these positions please feel free to contact me offline to we can discuss the openings further in detail.

Day Trading And Short-Term Trading

This is making money in the short run, this is the best way to describe this type of investing action. Although many people are fascinated by the act of day trading, it is not an endeavor for the weak at heart. It is estimated that 60% of those who try day trading QUIT- usually having lost money. That being said, it’s possible to make a lot of money day trading, and there are plenty of people who’ve done it. Personally, I don’t advocate day or short term trading, long term value investing is my prefer investing action. But I like to educate people on other avenues of investing so that my views are not bias but wholistic.

Day trading is just what it sounds like, your purchase and sale or a stock takes place within twenty-four hours. Sometimes it takes places within minutes of the initial purchase. Short term trading, on the other hand, is slightly slower pace. The purchase and sale of stock takes place over several days l, but generally occurs within a week. Day trading can occur anywhere, but it most frequently happens on the stock exchanges(particularly the NASDAQ) and the foreign exchange, also known as the FOREX.

Day traders usually rely on very fast computers since speed is a key asset in day trading. With that in mind this is why I don’t recommend it for ordinary investors. You would be at a technological disadvantage. Day traders also need access to the trading desk, sources of news, and an understanding of technical analysis and the software necessary to perform it.

Day traders and short-term traders, like technical investors, rely on trends rather than performing fundamental analyses on companies whose stock they trade. Day traders and short-term traders work within four basic time frames:

  • Short-Time: One or two week trades
  • Swing: Occurs within two to five days
  • Day: Bought and sold within a day
  • Scalping:Bought $sold within mins or secs

Day trading works best, for obvious reasons, in a bull market, but experienced traders can also profits from a Bear market. If you can’t deal with fast trading, day trading or short-term trading is probably NOT FOR YOU!

Weekly Update: Manic Monday Email

Greetings Members,
Happy Manic Monday to you all! This week is another week of earnings week for Wall Street. The biggest names to report will be Under Armour on Tuesday, Cisco Wednesday, Waste Management Thursday, PepsiCo and John Deere Friday. This earning season has been a mixed bag of reports next surprising coming off the heels of a slow holiday season and the long government shutdown in U.S. history. And with the threat of another shutdown looming as early as Friday if a deal isn’t hashed out, I expect the markets to react as the deadline gets closer. 
Investment Strategy

The goal is to have the remaining $35K plus all put back into the market by week’s end. The earning season came upon us and I didn’t want to get caught up in overreactions and selling wave that often take place during the first earning reports of the year. But between today and Friday, Charles and I, have agreed the funds need and will be reinvest back fully in the security that were voted on back tomorrow the end of last year. In addition, this month will be the first month that we will get back to the monthly contribution as well that will go to add to positions we have already massed with the $50K of starting Capital. 
Blog Writers

As many of you know Charles and I often write blog post on varying sectors of investing, real estate, money management, and etc; as a way to offer meaningful content to go along with this crowdfunding group we are all in. But we are not experts on all matter of business and don’t proclaim to be. The but thing about our Coalition is that we are in various industries and profession that add to the think tank of our investing ideas. With that in mind we would like more members who submit written material for blog publication. You don’t have to be an author or excellent writer, perfection is not the goal here. We simply would like more insightful content to push out to the group and to the interested public about matter that could be help. If this sound like something that would interest you please email me so that we can get you posted as soon as possible. 
Annual Fee
We’re still working thru the numbers in regards who has and who hasn’t paid their annual fee for the fiscal year 2019. Once those number have been finalize those who have not paid will he sent one final email in order to obtain the annual fee. We would rather the fee be paid upfront however if you have not paid the fee after the final email your member account will be notated and the fees will be obtained from your investment principal in order to make sure this club runs smoothly and efficiently. Lastly, if you have already paid your fee make sure that you have sent your T-shirt size over to Charles so yours is included in the overall order.

Weekly Update: Manic Monday Email

Greetings Members, 

Happy Black History month to you all and a very Happy Manic Monday. It’s been a while since we last spoke, a few holidays fell on Mondays and I was ill last week and am finally back really on my feet. But let’s get down to the business of the club. Stocks have done quite well so far this year, and much of the upward push has come from positive earnings results from the many companies that have already reported this season. This afternoon, investors will hear from two more key players — Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOG) (NASDAQ: GOOGL) and Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ: GILD) — and what they have to say could have a dramatic impact on their entire industries and the stock market as a whole. 
Annual Contribution

Hopefully this is just a reminder, because you all have paid your annual fee already, but annual contribution was due last Thursday. The total annual cost of only $25. As stated before these funds will go to the overall operation of the club in regards to administrative fees and tax preparation for the club on a yearly basis. If you have not yet paid the fee a email will be sent out to that effect urging you to please pay this fee ASAP so we can move on from this matter. 
Return To The Market
Per the last update, Charles and I are still executing the strategy to return all of our working capital back to the financial markets so we can start gain new profits and strengthen our position in our new holdings. The process had been slowed by the arrival of earnings season which saw a lot of shares rise on either in estimates beat or just the potential of the business in the future. We will continue to work to gain the best value for our capital so we can maximize ROI as much as possible. If investment strategy do change and we think a pivot is necessary we will advise the club post haste. The last I reviewed we had returned about $12,500.00 back to the market which means we still have some maneuvering to do to get the full $50,000 back into the market.

Random Thoughts


The cannabis sector is getting a lot of movement and dealing making, as you know I believe this sector is very much in its infancy. There is no track record of long standing success or the ability to produced profits or long term business operations. With that being said, I do believe their is profitability in the present with the excitement around the potential and what can happen with the relaxation of the Canadian regulations. The club has exposure to this sector already so I believe we are open to those profits. But also know some of you like myself still do additional investing on the side, so if even haven’t already gotten a position in this sector I highly recommend doing some research and doing so quickly. The excitement probably won’t last long and a lot of this evaluation are overblown so be very strategic where you place your finances if you do take a stab at this new sector.
