While I was working as a corporate executive, my other passion, besides analyzing businesses, that I loved and spent my free time on but that I didn’t really talk about a lot was my spirituality and my connection with God.

Put it in words that you recognize as true for yourself – Source, the Creator, the Universe, Soul, Goddess… it wasn’t about religion for me but about SPIRIT, if you will, the Holy Spirit moving through me and expressing into the world.

My friend, Jaron Banks, says “I AM God’s Dream”.(1) Jaron’s website here

The DREAM of PURE SOUL connection in my heart, the feeling of LOVE when you look at BEAUTY that MOVES YOU , my childhood connection with the stories of JESUS and of his work and parables. These were my “rock”, what I rested upon during stormy seas.

Vision is my thing; I am a Seer. A Seer is someone who can see a “future picture” with high accuracy. In business, what’s especially important – to performance and success – is whether this future picture is aligned with where the business is starting, and with what management says they are about compared with what they are actually doing.

While working in investment banking as an equity analyst, I became really good at company analysis and found I was naturally talented at strategy, at strategically viewing the world, a company, its business relationships, it’s operations, Now, and in relation to its “Future Picture”.

 

The Future Picture as a Component of Business Success

*****

A lack of alignment between Future Picture and Now meant that something was off, and there might not be business success the way management predicted.

Alignment between Future Picture and Now meant the business as an investment by shareholders could be a home run, maybe even a hit out of the park.

And when the Outcome is a hit out of the park, Continue reading What’s Your FUTURE PICTURE? and OUTCOMES that are a HIT OUT OF THE PARK

One day, years ago, I was taking a flight from San Francisco to Florida, and a man sat next to me in first class on the overlay in Texas. He was having a hard time, and I prayed with him, and we talked about angels – human angels.

This is another blog post with a soundtrack…. My new favorite song is “My Angel” by Prince Royce Listen Here.

One of the things I love to do with people is BRIDGE DISTANCES, find commonalities, bring seemingly disparate ideas and concepts together.

I feel that we can best do this by asking “what do we both care about that’s in common?”

When you are doing business this approach also expands the pool of potential customers and friends. And, you know, sometimes going out of your way to help another person ends up being incredibly helpful to yourself in ways that are unexpected.

Many senior executives and business founders are at a level where they have significant responsibilities, they are acting in authority, yet they do not have a peer with whom to discuss key business trends, key operational considerations, someone they can talk about strategy with in a secure environment, who gets what they are saying, who gets the level they are operating at, and who can reflect back, have a conversation with them that’s meaningful, productive, that Continue reading The Art of Business Analysis, Organic Investment Themes, the Growth of Solopreneurs, and Creating from the Heart
