Meet me in Toronto and let me teach you the Billionaires Two-Step

Meet me in Toronto to learn the millionaire or billionaire two-step (thinking moving to Dallas or Florida or Canada for citizenship as it is a much better dancing here).

I will be in Toronto trying to be a white knight and talk to accredited investors, a billionaire family office, and others about Fund of Funds, Venture Capital Funds, and how to play with other billionaires!

Brain Dump for my draft for a Forbes article.

Meeting my good friend from a billionaire family Sunday and Monday to talk about the Billionaire two-step.  I hope to watch “Wall Street” with Micheal Douglas with him to understand how to dance with other billionaire families.  Let us face it, you have to be a baller to be a billionaire.  If you can not stand the dance, sit the game out when other billionaires want to dance on your head.  What can you do if you do not know about take-overs, leveraged buyouts, etc.


Here are my picks to get your 101 training for your family office battles and/or billionaire battle.  Watch some movies such as:

  1. Wall Street
  2. Barbarians at the Gate
  3. Pretty Woman
  4. Others TBA (input welcome)


Find a friend that can help save the day that knows high finance and can help you with a public or private company.  More to come…..


Let us face it, the saying “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” could be your solutions.  However, you might find that new friend your enemy very shortly.  More to come…

Unicorn vs dragon forbes

For a full read visit Forbes at:

Startup investors generally use a high-risk model where they spread their capital among numerous startups, knowing that it only takes one or two to be successful enough to pay back the initial capital investment. Companies that produce such returns are called dragons. Unicorns are more based on valuation. A dragon is one deal that pays the return for a fund after investing in many deals.
