CONCEPT: There is no place like Silicon Valley or is it now the Bay Area – kinda

Source and Quote from E&Y Report by

Despite an overall slowdown in Q4, emerging regions like Los Angeles, Seattle, San Diego, and Orange County bucked the trend with increased investment across the board. Combined, they raised over $3.8 billion in funds during the final quarter and Seattle (18%), San Diego (29%), and Orange County (24%) saw double-digit growth. The leading sectors responsible for this increase were consistent with national results, including information technology, business and financial services, and health care.

CONCEPT

Seattle, Boston, Los Angles, San Diego, Austin, DC Metro (Potomac?) are all on the radar.  However, should you still move to the Bay Area or a second-tier city or stay at home?

Planning on interviewing people and place a paid article in Forbes or other freelance opportunities.

CONCEPT: We need to end the encroachment of lawyers, accountants, regulators, etc. on our life and return to a simple and affordable life? #psbyjd


CONCEPT: What can be done to simplify our lives?  Can we stop or decrease the complex issues in our lives and all the rules resulting in having to hire lawyers, accountants, and more!

GOOD: The United States of America is a great place to live!

BAD: We are adding red tape every day making it worst!

UGLY: We have to feed lawyers, accountants, etc. money because of the rules.

BOTTOMLINE: Could impact investing be better served by moving society away from lawyers.

“We need to stop wasting money and throwing money at bad things.  We need to stop feed lawyers, accountants, and all the jobs that just waste our money.  Life should be about doing good and not red tape and rules!” – J20.02.10.0632P

Shakespeare Kill all the lawyers

Let’s kill all the lawyers” is a line from William Shakespeare‘s Henry VI, Part 2, Act IV, Scene 2. The full quote is “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers”.

“Whether Shakespeare  sympathises  with the line is ambiguous, and it has been interpreted in different ways: criticism of how lawyers maintain the privilege of the wealthy and powerful; implicit praise of how lawyers stand in the way of violent mobs; and criticism of bureaucracy and perversions of the rule of law.”

Liberty, or give me death!

Give me liberty, or give me death!” is a quotation attributed to Patrick Henry from a speech he made to the Second Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775, at St. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia –

“Give me liberty, or give me death!” is a quotation attributed to Patrick Henry from a speech he made to the Second Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775, at St. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia.
Henry is credited with having swung the balance in convincing the convention to pass a resolution delivering Virginian troops for the Revolutionary War. Among the delegates to the convention were future U.S. Presidents Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.Source

CONCEPT > Does extremely provocative work? Borat vs. Paul Logan


 

“All that matters is results, but you have to have the style that works for you” – J20.02.01

CONCEPT: At what point does being provocative work for good promotion and at what point do the haters help more than hurt?  My motto is “Say Provocative statements that intelligent people argue about fast without dotting your I’s and crossing your T’s. As life is all about fun and results!”

Paul Logan (almost everything = million likes or views), Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat), and many others show that provocative works even in the extream.

PAUL LOGAN CASE STUDY:

FULL SONG: The Fall Of Jake Paul (Official Video) FEAT. Why Don’t We= 246,879,596 views made Jul 9, 2017, with 590,403 Comments & 3.5 million likes based on  Logan Paul’s 20.2M subscribers!  Logan Paul has views, but how does he make his money? Does he have bots?  Who is his fan base?  Can he move to higher-paying activities?  My kids have one view (14 & 16-year-old), but what is the true story behind Logan Paul?

BOTTOMLINE: Sacha Baron Cohen (aka Borat) is HNWI with more than $100 million due to his media success, while Logan Paul is pegged at little over $10 million at the age of 24 year old.  YouTube is great, but stick to the movies and TV should you want to make the big bucks!

Developing Concepts on extream provocative activities and  “Benevolent Dictators” thanks to Sacha Baron Cohen’s movie!

CONCEPT

UPDATE F1 01/28/2020: Before his death, Niki Lauda was the non-executive chairman of Mercedes-AMG Petronas. Following Lauda’s demise, questions were raised regarding Lauda’s stake in the team- which stood at 10%. However, Team Principal Toto Wolff said the issue would be resolved after the summer break.  Source:  https://www.essentiallysports.com/f1-news-niki-laudas-family-to-return-his-10-stake-in-mercedes-f1-back-to-the-team/

Research on NASCAR (FORBES):  The top nine Nascar teams are worth $141 million, down 3% from last year as sponsorships at high prices continue to be a tough sell. There is optimism in the garages though after a multiyear slide that saw fans and sponsors abandon the sport. TV ratings for the season increased 10%, attendance at the tracks.  Source: https://www.forbes.com/pictures/mli45hfeg/the-most-valuable-nascar-teams/#4c16cabf43ae

Research on top F1 for branding: (FORBES 2016) That benchmark was set in January 2017, when billionaire John Malone’s Liberty Media finally stepped in to buy the series for $8 billion. F1 has since seemed to find some solid ground. Last year, the series generated $1.83 billion in revenue, a 2.5% year-over-year increase. F1’s tracking stock, FWONK, has a $10 billion market cap and is trading around an all-time high (the share price is up 48% since Liberty’s purchase). American television audiences are growing—up 22% this season—as is global race attendance.

CONCEPT Brioni Traveling Rule


This is a concept blog posting based on writing an article for a magazine or online media.

CONCEPT:  It was my tumb rule that a Trader Joes need to be near my travel location in the days when I would travel to any location.  Now I think the Brioni rule should apply when trying to find a hotel within a 1 or 3 or 7 or ??? mile radius.  All you have to say is Brioni is in the Wynn = zero miles.  More developing!  As of 2015, Brioni had 46 directly-operated retail stores.

Visiting soon: Store at 459 North Rodeo DriveCA 90210 and Wynn, Suite 1, 3131 Las Vegas Boulevard South (explore the 1 or 3 or 7-mile rule)

Brioni was established in Rome in 1945 as a men’s tailoring company by founders Nazareno Fonticoli, a tailor, and Gaetano Savini, an entrepreneur.[6] They opened their first shop on Via Barberini 79, naming the brand after the formerly Italian Brionian Islands (now part of Croatia); the shop is still at the same address. Brioni quickly started to raise interest from high-profile movie business personalities, heads of state and business leaders.

In 1952, Brioni staged the first men’s fashion show in history, inside the Sala Bianca at Palazzo Pitti in Florence. The clothes introduced new silhouettes, bold colors and innovative fabrics, marking an important chapter for the company. A couple of years later, Brioni invented the trunk show, during which the collections were presented directly in stores, allowing customers to personalize the garments with the Su Misura service (made-to-measure).[7]

“Keep it simple is key to your success! Otherwise, you better have a lot of money to hire lots of lawyers, accountants, and other sage advisors.” – J20.01.25.0700E

101 RULES ABOUT DEALS

  1. Always make deals simple and transparent
  2. Know who are your investor(s)
  3. Try to know about the source of the money
  4. More to come from interviewing people

Most importantly hire experts such as lawyers, accountants, etc. to make sure you know what you are doing as double-checking is good, but triple-checking is better.
