Growth is an interesting word, right? It means one thing to Max Salk and could mean a different thing to another investor or analyst. Max Salk may love the sound of growth and another investor or analyst may not love it. The fact of the matter is that growth is essential to life and sometimes this means that a balance sheet just doesn’t balance out.
No, it may not, and that’s fine, as long as the trajectory shows that there are enough revenues present to cover the liabilities in the short term. Never compromise the future for short-term stability today. A company may see some sort of short term gains while allocating value and shifting it to investors for a period of time prior to losing market share to other competitors who are using Amazon’s playbook against them. Max Salk would see that a company such as Amazon in the process of building around its service and company.
The key value that Amazon provides is that it pushes the boundaries on how fast people get their products, how they are able to consume content, what they receive overall and how they live their lives in gaming and other aspects of life.
Amazon has captured major parts of the market by contributing value in one vertical and then taking over the vertical while spilling over into other aspects. Max Salk would see that the value Amazon brings to the table in organizing resources is appreciated by the free market, incentives are aligned with employees and consumers are extremely happy.
By pushing the boundaries, understanding needs, and innovating Amazon matters. Amazon bet on a brighter future and built to get there. It was hard but they did it by focusing on improving cash flows, being loved by consumers and getting their metrics right overall. This is how they survived and this is how they will continue to survive.
Remember that it is long-term vitality that is prized, not just short term moves. Remember to think in the long term each day and prepare each day to shine at the moment as Max Salk is wont to do.
Shervin Pishevar gives us all a free lesson on world economics with his 21-hour Twitter sermon. Shervin Pishevar is an investor who has been known to focus on unique startups. Some of his past financial ventures were in Uber and Airbnb, the home and car sharing companies, and Dollar Shave Club. Pishevar comes from a unique background. When he was young, his family immigrated here. Since then, he has worked on several immigration projects and donated his time to some political causes.
Some of his tweets covered immigration, and because of his personal view on the subject, the comments stood out. Shervin Pishevar stated we build borders to keep immigrants out, but the walls are not needed. Immigrants can go elsewhere, and the tweets about Silicon Valley back those facts. California used to be the place to be. You had to be in Silicon Valley to be in the technology world, but today there are no borders for this business. A border is obsolete in today’s world. People have become free from countries and boundaries.
One aspect that will allow these workers and businesses freedom is they can use cryptocurrency. They do not have to be shackled with traditional banking. Shervin Pishevar understands investing, and he thinks these new companies can use cryptocurrency to remain border free, and he referred to them as stateless.
Pishevar gambles that Bitcoin will settle in at around $5,000 or less in two years. Right now, the price has been all over the map, and at one point teetered around $20,000.
Shervin Pishevar gave us many things to ponder in his day-long Twitter vent. The world economy is powered by new thinkers who are spread out across the globe. No one has to be connected to a currency or a capital anymore. His take on immigration touches on borders and boundaries. You may take from his feed that these structures will become useless and pointless soon. The stock market will rise and fall like the sun, but he is brave enough to call out some plateaus for Bitcoin, and Pishevar gives it a tight timeline of when to expect the cryptocurrency to stabilize.
