How did I miss this? Years of not understanding how and why stock prices go up and down — I thought it was a scientific mystery. In small business and entrepreneurship, which is my focus, stock prices are more theoretical than real; and I didn’t have money to invest until very recently. And then Stanley Bing lays it out for me so that now it makes perfect sense.
There I was with a fancy MBA degree and years of experience, but every time I’ve ever thought I had it figured out, I was wrong. Thank God I never really had enough money to invest until I also had enough money to pay somebody else (thanks Scott) to invest for me.
I admit there were times, during my years consulting in business planning in the Silicon Valley, that I thought I could predict one company going up or down. Sometimes that was because they were clients. Unfortunately, my dad invested on my hunches several times, and lost money every time. And he did have money to lose.
So thanks, Stanley, now I finally get it.
