Who is Adam Neumann?

The short answer is one of a kind.

Adam Neumann is the barefoot, tequila-drinking, weed-smoking Billionaire co-founder of WeWork.

Adam Neumann list of humble and realistic aspirations as reported by The Wall Street Journal in 2019:
  • Live forever. Maybe...
  • Become the World's First Trillionaire. Sorry Elon!
  • Expand WeWork to the planet Mars. It won't be with you...
  • Become Israel's prime minister. Okay!
  • Become "President Of The World". Just that?!

With an estimated net worth of US$1.6 BILLION, it seem that his eccentricity served him really well. But, he's still a long way from becoming a Trillionaire. However, if he is immortal as he claims and lives forever...

As Aristotle would say...

With a net worth of $250 MILLION, the Romney Family can all be spelling M-O-N-E-Y with a shitload of it!!!

The above picture from 1984 resurfaced as a "scandal" during his 2012 Presidential run. It was for an HBO screen-test for a TV show. Considered their wealth, they were modest just snapping $10 and $20 bills instead of good ole' c-notes. Why?

Romney led Bain Capital (private equity firm) to grow from a staff of seven managing $37 Million to a staff of 115 managing $4 Billion.

American medias should salute his financial success instead of demonizing it.

Fine Art America success story

 

Fine Art America vs Sillicone Valley
Fine Art America vs Sillicon Valley

From the Founder/CEO of Fine Art America and Pixels.com, Sean Broihier.

Fine Art America produces museum-quality artprints since 2006 and is one of the only major POD (print-on-demand) companies that has never raised money from investors.

What is admirable about Fine Art America - aside from producing high-quality artprints - is the fact that to this date:

  • was built by a single programmer in 2006
  • is run by just 8 employees
  • is profitable
  • has zero debt
  • doesn't have any investors
  • doesn't have any connection to Silicon Valley
  • never raised money
  • is a privately held company
  • 100% self-funded
  • fully automated
  • highly diversified (18 companies into one) online, offline, mobile, and streaming.
Despite being 100% independant and "under-funded", they succcessfully competed against tech giant corporations with hundreds of employees and hundreds of millions in venture capital.

Sillicon Valley mentality
  • raising millions of dollars from investors in venture capital
  • hiring 50+ employees
  • spending millions of dollars on your website, product development, and advertising
  • Maybe someday, figuring out how to make money...
The fact and the matter is that raised money isn't yours. It's the money of your new bosses - your investors and board of direction that you have to answer to. You're now an employee that lose a lot of his control to new bosses.

Against conventional wisdom (Sillicone Valley, Shark Tank, MBA, Wall Street, etc), maybe raising capital is a sign of weakness. A sign that your company isn't profitable and that you need outside money to keep it alive?

Fine Art America stated that the secret to its success is that they never raised money. FAA success formula is to be lean, automated, highly diversified, and profitable.

The founder/builder of FAA was a one man operation with absolutely no money and no connection in the art world and the internet world. Instead of spending months chasing investors, he simply choose to build his business.

By the way, if your business is actually worth 15x your annual profits. What those money-bleeding Sillicone Valley tech giants are really worth?
