If you haven’t been keeping track (and by my usage I know you haven’t), my blog has undergone some significant changes. I am hoping that the new simple layout will bring more visitors as well as dialogue. This seems to be more fluid and is built upon DMS (which I referenced in my earlier post). My previous format although good, was a bit stale. It was time for a new look. It’s a new blog and should look like something I’ve never done. The focus of this website has changed a bit over the last several months. When I brought it back online I originally planned on having it solely as a professional view of my life. I realized though, that restricting it to only business was a bit myopic. My life is so much more broad than that and limiting it would be short-sighted.
I am going to be posting often, based upon time and importance. I think that if I am going to post something it has to be important enough for you to read and not just filler. I follow a couple of blogs and although they are good sometimes, they delve into some crazy topics. I am looking forward to the discourse and opportunity to share with you my experiences throughout my MBA as well as law school. It’s going to be an interesting experience.
I am just finishing up one of my classes for my MBA, it was Finance Fundamentals. It is interesting the amount of evaluation that is done on a company. There are many factors to consider when choosing financial options for a company. I won’t bore you with the details now but when the time is right I’ll share some interesting tips.
In the mean time here is a little tip for you, when you are buying and selling stocks unless you are purchasing or selling them directly to the company that the stock is in, you are only giving others the profit not the company. Now this is true only for secondary market transfers, if you buy stock for an IPO then you will have helped fund the company. Case in point, Facebook today almost broke even from their IPO. The original purchasers have finally recouped their losses. The only winners in this equation were the employees who sold their stock and made at least some money. The first investors are probably now thinking about selling.
