Cathy Wood - To Catch A Falling Knife

5/3/2022
Cathy Wood is a warrior. Perhaps with the wrong battle plan. She is a general - intelligent, seasoned, and committed to the cause. Yet, a war of attrition only works if the army (in this case, her investors) have the staying power for prolonged battles with an unknown endpoint. She catches falling knifes, averages down, and counts on her investors having unlimited patience and staying power. To catch a falling knife is a phrase used to describe buying a stock that is falling dramatically...

The Mind Of A Champion - Nature Versus Nurture

4/12/2022
Overcoming Adversity… …the title of a podcast I recorded during the worst of Covid. I am intrigued by certain individuals' drive and resilience as they rise to great heights, despite being challenged with immense hurdles. In that podcast (listen here), I spoke with two athletes: Asante Cleveland, a former NFL tight-end who played with the New England Patriots, San Francisco 49ers, and the San Diego Chargers, and with Lindsey Dare Shoop, an Olympic gold medalist in rowing, world champion,...

An Inverted Yield Curve - Why It Matters

4/5/2022
***NOTE: There are 12 zeros in a trillion, 9 in a billion and 6 in a million. I incorrectly stated 18 per trillion in the recording. Apologies.*** What Is A Yield Curve? The Treasury yield curve is a graph that charts the interest rate on Treasury bonds, notes, and bills versus their maturity (time until they pay back principal). Normally it slopes upward, from left to right. When you think about it, it makes sense. Bondholders demand a higher rate of interest to lend money (i.e., hold...

Aging Out Of The Workforce - Part 1

3/29/2022
The Race Between Technology And Education A major impetus for my writing and recording is my interest in personal reinvention. The overcoming of adversity. How does one remain relevant in the job market after age - pick one - 40-45-50? Traditionally, in post-WW2 America, a citizen enters the workforce at 18-25 years of age, with no degree, or with a two-year, four year or graduate degree, and accumulates savings with the anticipation of retirement at age 65. For roughly seven decades,...

Overcoming Adversity

6/11/2020
In the words of Asante Cleveland, a former NFL tight-end, podcast host and advisor to start-ups, "as a player post a big win or a stunning loss you must lock back in every week because you've got another task ahead". Lindsay Dare Shoop, Olympic gold-medalist, coach, author and speaker, shares a story of overcoming adversity to become an elite athlete from a starting point of being mentally and physically out of shape such that "a speed walker legged past her during the first 5k I...

The Designers View of Life Under the Pandemic - Breegan Jane and Rick Brown

5/24/2020
Designers and the economy. What's the view from the inside? The design consultant has a unique perspective that allows her (him) to see the world through the eyes of the client (homeowner, small business owner, corporate entity), as well as, through the lens of manufacturers, craftsmen, cargo shippers, entrepreneurs - essentially the entire supply chain. Add to this the face-to-face interaction with families at home and business owners at their place of work, and a perspective is forged...

Hope for the Best, Prepare for the Worst

5/8/2020

The Earth at Peace, but Never on Mute

5/6/2020
Covid, Climate Change, a gecko, a fox, and an Oracle. The pandemic of 2020 brought a wake-up call. We are not immune from virus, the Blue Planet benefits from a carbon light industry, and global supply chains leave us vulnerable to disruption and economic warfare. In 1987, Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) walked along the shore at sunrise with a cell phone the size of a box of Kleenex in his left hand. With the swagger of a Wall Street Master of the Universe, he says to Budd Foxx (Charlie...
