Welcome, all the new people to my social media. More than 100 people have joined us this week. For example on LinkedIn, we have 140+ apply for our Investor Network (5,696 members) and Sell Your Company (9,739 members).
Referrals for Investor Network Destinations membership would be greatly appreciated this week.
I have launched a beta blog about my journey back to the top! CHIME Journal by JD Morris.
CIME is defined as:
the top or extreme point of something (usually a mountain or hill)
My goal is something great by July (3q2019) or September (4q2019).
This is in conflict with my main belief: “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!” or do provocative activities that lead to change and great results!

I am JD Morris your host for Investor Network Destinations (IND). We are under beta and plan to launch in 2019. We have two goals.
One is to host special events pre and post great conferences and summits at amazing destinations.
Two is to provide information via our blog to help invest in alternative assets. During our beta our educational focus is on co-investing with venture capital.
Investor Network origins began more than 50 years ago in Washington, DC. with a group of like-minded investors that we would call a multi-family office today. Investor Network Destinations is our next evolution to bring together friends, accredited investors, and family offices to invest in alternative assets.
