Weekly Reflection: Week One Hundred Seventy-Eight

This is my one-hundred-seventy-eighth weekly reflection. Here are my takeaways from this week:

  • Determining value – I’ve noticed a trait common to successful entrepreneurs who happen to be investors—I call them “investor entrepreneurs.” They can confidently value what they’re investing in—often in a way that differs from the rest of the market. When buying anything, they make sure to pay significantly less than what they’ve determined it’s worth, regardless of what others are doing and regardless of the asset type (real estate, start-ups, public companies, etc.).
  • IPOs – I noticed, this week and last, an uptick in the number of tech-related firms planning to go public. Instacart, Klaviyo, and Arm are a few examples. I’m curious to see how the market receives these companies. I’m also curious to review their IPO filings to find out if they’re generating or burning cash.
  • Emulate what you admire – Habitually emulating the positive qualities you admire in others is a life hack that compounds. Everyone can do it, but most people won’t.

Week one hundred seventy-eight was another week of learning. Looking forward to next week!
