QUOTES (Made it easy on myself as source is Hubspot)

  1. ‘The measure of intelligence is the ability to change’ -Albert Einstein
  2. ‘The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude’ -Oprah Winfrey
  3. ‘Every day the clock resets. Your wins don’t matter. Your failures don’t matter. Don’t stress on what was, fight for what could be.’ -Sean Higgins
  4. ‘Don’t let rejection create self-doubt. The founder of Starbucks was turned down by 217 of the 242 investors he initially spoke with.’ -Elizabeth Galbut
  5. ‘Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.’ -Leo Tolstoy
  6. ‘Play to your strengths. If you aren’t great at something, do more of what you’re great at.’ -Jason Lemkin
  7. ‘Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.’ -Harriet Tubman

Every great team knows how to change and adapt based on their situation, like a pitcher changing the pitch, they’re going to throw on the mound, or an executive modifying the go-to-market strategy for a vertical. Whether in business or life, change takes time to get used to — and even the greats struggle to keep up. So, how can you be ready for change or even cause the change you want to see in your community, team, or life?

“ There will be bear markets about twice every 10 years and recessions about twice every 10 or 12 years but nobody has been able to predict them reliably. So the best thing to do is to buy when shares are thoroughly depressed and that means when other people are selling. ”  – Quest Who (not Warren Buffet, but sound longer version of his quote).

“The main purpose of the stock market is to make fools of as many men as possible.” — Bernard Baruch

“One of the funny things about the stock market is that every time one person buys, another sells, and both think they are astute.” — William Feather

“I know people who repeatedly jump from one guru to the next in search of the Holy Grail of trading. Of course, it doesn’t exist, but you need to know this fact to stop looking for it.” — Naved Abdali

“Anybody who plays the stock market not as an insider is like a man buying cows in the moonlight.” — Daniel Drew

DOA – Mindshare, Datadump, and Cartoon v20220811UTC1411

GOAL: To find people that like to share ideas that are accredited investors, self-direct IRA investors, or other investors. Today topic is mindshare group is DOA.

“Is the DOA idea more D.O.A. as the funding is not as strong as other spaces?” – JDM V202200811UTC1401

Only 128 deals this year with a total of more than $440 million.

DEFINE: Decentralized autonomous organizations, more commonly referred to by the abbreviation DAOs, are organizations that use smart contracts maintained on blockchains to govern interactions between users, group incentives and outputs, and membership conditions. DAOs represent a departure from traditional hierarchical organizations in that control and decision making need not be highly centralized, and decisions among group members are largely facilitated via governance token ownership and voting. DAOs have been created for a variety of purposes such as crowdfunding, gaming, and investment, each channeling the ethos that participation and ownership should be democratized.

Here is a D.O.A. joke as could not find any industry jokes on this space!
