  • Money Ideas

    I spent nearly 20 years providing ideas to investors from across the capital markets. I’m really good at it, specifically analyzing business and market data to discern value from price. Being good at this means knowing if a company’s strategy is good or bad; if they innovate well or not; if the organizational structure and […]

  • Newsletter, No Ads?!

    I’m thinking of putting together a free newsletter or multiple newsletters at Key Bridge to bring expertise on B2B, B2C, and B2G to business leaders we reach out to. The problem is that I have built email lists in the past and the cost usually far outweighs to benefit. I could do this across our […]

  • Rick Rubin for Business Development

    Like a music producer works with the artist, I think there’s a market for doing the same thing with business leaders who either run their own business or manage a solid P and L. There are so many business networks, mastermind groups, expert networks, leadership networks, referral networks, investment networks, and all sorts of other […]

  • If not me, then someone

    This is how I feel right now. I’m torn between two paths that I am close to equally confident about. I originally wanted to merge them and build one platform with services on the front end and a private membership on the back end. Maybe writing this will give me some clarity in my own […]

  • Heading in the Right Direction

    Over the weekend, I had a deep think about what I want to do with Key Bridge going forward. I have been hung up on a mental challenge for years and it’s put me in a position of complacency and drift. The issue has been fee structure. It’s not like the business has raw materials […]

  • The Art of Saying No

    I have too many ideas and not enough capital. I want to simultaneously build two different kind of services that run concurrently. I don’t know how to combine them and have been floating for nearly two years. While others used the pandemic to do something positive, I let fear get the best of me. Granted, […]

  • Amor Fati

    The idea of loving one’s fate is a rather new concept for me as it goes in direct opposition to progress. Pressfield’s book War of Art could be translated as doing the work against your fate. Of course, “resistance” as Pressfield describes is there whether it adds or subtracts from your fate. I think that’s […]

  • You are going to die…

    The ancient stoics talk about “memento mori” – death comes to us all. You’re going to die. Everyone does. This is something I tell myself every day and I don’t pretend to be very stoic. It’s not a dark death wish by any means. It’s more of a reminder that I need to do things […]
