I just became fatfire eligible - my story

2020.08.31 20:01 ohioguy1942 I just became fatfire eligible - my story

42 years old, medium/high cost of living area. Total Net Worth $21M (up from $4M a month ago :) )
Like many of you, I have been dreaming of writing this post for years - I just achieved what for me is FatFIRE eligibility, though I do not yet know when/if I will retire.
---
This is my story...
I graduated from a good (but not elite) small liberal arts college. I did not apply myself during college (regretted later), had no idea what I wanted to do. The big 5 consulting firms at the time (late 90s) were interviewing on campus...I had a few friends who had graduated in prior years that were enjoying similar roles, and smart people I knew seemed interested in pursuing these on campus interviews, so I did it.
Career Chapter 1: 6 years at a big 5 firm
They put me in the "technology" practice because this is where they were experiencing the most growth (this was leading up to the dotcom bubble). After 6 weeks of intensive (and very high quality) training, I was put in the telecoms practice, writing COBOL for large telecoms company billing systems transitions.
After 6 years of good but not great performance reviews and promotions, I went from $32K starting salary to $75K. I felt pretty good about it. I had a small 401K (maybe $50K) to show for it. I had lost about $4K of other savings doing margin trading right in to the dot com bubble. I had maybe $10K cash saved. The firm had IPOd and the partner track had lost appeal. I knew I was underpaid based on seeing my clients get paid 25-50% more than I was for doing less work, and I wanted to make money....but working in a cubicle at a large telecoms firm sounded like hell to me. I started taking the LSAT practice courses and decided to go to law school. I was accepted at a decent state school and enrolled to start in the fall.
Then I got a phone call....I former manager in consulting was starting a software company in Asia and wanted me to come join. He had raised $5M and was forming the initial team. I'd be coding, writing requirements, helping sell, and forming the product vision. I joined as a technical product manager and moved to Asia.
I took a HUGE pay cut (down to just basic living expenses in a VHCOL city in Asia), packed my shit, accepted some stock options (I had NO IDEA how to even understand how they worked much less how to value them - I trusted the founder was giving me a fair stake).
Career Chapter 2: The tech startup game
Immediately I realized I was SO MUCH HAPPIER and more productive working in small teams on concepts that were just visions on a powerpoint, bringing them to life in a software product.
After 3 years of struggling to get our first clients, I decided I'd had enough and wanted to work back in the states. On what? I knew I wanted to work at a tech startup. From being in Europe and owning new modern phones with internet access and java apps/games, I had this inkling that we were about to see a revolution in mobile computing. I wanted to get myself wrapped up in this wave and hoped my boat would rise with the tide.
After spending a few months unemployed and getting increasingly nervous, I got a call from a recruiter about a mobile apps startup in my home US city (midwest). I jumped at it. I borrowed a friend's blackberry for the job interview to show I was "obsessed with mobile" (I had a really cheap and shitty samsung phone at the time). I got the job. We spent 4 years working on a platform that would enable easier development of mobile apps. Nobody wanted it. iOS and Android launched and made our system obsolete. The company shut down after burning $30M of investor money with almost zero revenue to show for it. But I had learned a TON about how to design, build, launch and test mobile apps. At this point I was firmly on a path as a software product manager, and was an ideal fit for Sr Mgr or Director level jobs at startups dealing with mobile apps. I had made a good number of connections with mobile apps companies during my time trying to market our platform. One offered me a job and I took it.
This company was in the early stages of hockey-stick trajectory. It was a consumer content/utility app that became a household name over the next few years as we grew to many tens of millions of registered users. I grew with the company and was the head of product management for the company....when a large public company came and bought us for a couple hundred million. I had amassed options worth around 1% of the company but hadn't exercised them. I learned a tough lesson about what happens with taxes when you get accelerated vesting on stock options. I spent 3 years at a large public company working on the integration and other huge M&A deals.
My salary had grown from around $100K when I started to $300K + 40% bonus plus around $1M worth of RSUs in the company. After I left the company cratered and my stock was worth zero. I hadn't been diligent about always maxing 401K at during this process.
I had maybe $700K in post tax brokerage accounts being self-managed, $300K in a 401K, and maybe $25K in cash.
I had now seen "end to end" all phases of a startup from company formation to successful exit. And had seen a few unsuccessful exit/shutdowns as well.
Career Chapter 3: Planting a Seed
Along the way I started a tech startup with a couple of other guys. We each put in $30K, raised some friends and family money, and hired 3 young people to be the "founders" and try to get it going. It struggled for the first few years and nearly died, but eventually started to find a niche, and customers, and was now growing revenue at a healthy clip, I was on the board and stayed close to activities but never worked there. It raised several million dollars from a VC and was regularly getting inquiries from large companies about buying it.
This chapter isn't really standalone, it runs in parallel, I spent maybe 10 hours a month on this company from board meetings to making intros to interviewing people etc. I funneled a ton of top talent into this company - anyone good I worked with who was looking, I would get them involved - this was the most valuable thing I did over the course of the 8 years the company ran, and I would say this is definitely a key to being successful with an approach like mine. If you can start a company with a couple of other people with deep and solid networks who are able to consistently put high performing talent in to the company, good things can happen.
Career Chapter 4: My first CEO experience
I started my own software company with some friends. It wasn't particularly successful but got "acqui-hired" after 2 years, which made for a nice story and an ok outcome (founders got a few hundred K in cash), and investors were made whole for the most part. I was made CXO of the acquiring company and stuck around for 3 years.
Chapter 4: Winning
We're now 20 years into a successful software career with experience from qa tester to software developer to product manager to VPx and CXO at companies ranging from 3 people in a garage to massive public companies. I'm plugging along in a pretty cush gig pulling down $400K + options (in something that could be worth zero but still), the company is way overcapitalized. The seedling I had planted 8 years earlier was becoming a small tree, and the market was noticing. We were approached by a large private company and 6 months later we completed the deal. 7 individuals got proceeds in excess of $1M and that was the most gratifying part, to see these people who had built this thing from zero get paid (including a handful I had steered towards the company).
My take ended up being $17M.
So that leaves me wondering where to go from here? My wife makes around $800K as a lawyer, I am happy in my job but it doesn't really move the needle financially for me anymore. Our annual family burn is around $220K. Thinking about ratcheting this up to $350K or so, but always maintain the optionality to have zero income from me/wife, indefinitely. Which seems more than doable now.
I think I would be happy as an angel/advisor type if I could find 5-10 companies to help out. Ideally I'd work 20-30 hours a week but have total flexibility on the terms of it. In my heart I am more of an operator and believe advisors tend to lack the details to be truly useful.
I'm sharing this because I wanted to remind myself of the journey and hopefully it can be useful for others thinking about the various paths to fatfire.

2020.07.28 17:27 MiltDavis MRNA becoming Theranos at Warp Speed: An unfair comparison by an unfair guy

BREAKING: 7 pm 7/28: THE CMO OF MRNA HAS JUST SOLD EVERY SHARE HE OWNS*
UPDATE SECTION ———————————————————————
UPDATE 2 PM 7/30: MRNA board member resigns over potential conflict of interest in proceedings

*Update 2 pm 7/28: *Just announced that MRNA is seeking $50-$60 per course, compared to other pharma companies asking ~$20. AZN lowest with just below $10 🤔
Twitter is updated usually more frequently: MiltDavis
DD —————————————————————
The story of Theranos is a commonly floated parable in Silicon Valley for fast-rising startups that speaks more to the excitement of the time we were in--and the pressure on startup CEO's to succeed-- than it did the individual players involved, namely the 21 year old foundeCEO Elizabeth Holmes and to a lesser extent, her partner Sunny Balwani.
A decade ago, at the height of Silicon Valley mania once the dotcom bubble burst had become more history than cautionary tale, investors were wowed to the tune of a 10 billion dollar valuation by the BioTech startup Theranos and it's charismatic young CEO Holmes. The Stanford dropout, after spending months locked away working on a thesis, had conceived and was now promising the ability to diagnosis a wide array of diseases using only one drop of blood and her own proprietary device--in less than four hours. This shattered the industry standard (QUEST, etc) of multiple IV blood draws done in a lab and sent for testing, an accepted but somewhat gruesome process that could take days to produce results as the potentially ill patients and their doctors awaited the results.
The concept of one drop, wide-ranging diagnosis was beyond revolutionary; the most comparable recent memory in Silicon Valley being the innovations of the person she idolized and obsessed over; Steve Jobs and his reviving of Apple--only this one could save lives on a mass scale. Imagine a machine in your home the size of a cell phone that could screen you for . Through confidence and charm, she took advantage of the desperation of FOMO in a wide and prominent group of people who desperately wanted to be in on the ground floor a silicon valley "unicorn". Her biggest supporters included some of the most popular and renowned faculty at Stanford, four star generals including recent Secretary of Defense Mattis, and even Henry Kissinger. They all served on her board, and raked in billions of dollars in investments from individuals and Venture Capitalists. Rupert Murdoch, Betsy DeVos and a wide range of other celebrities and politicians invested hundreds of millions by the time they were in Series B.
Nevermind the fact that at this point Holmes was a college dropout without any successful previous research to show, or had presented any working demos of her product that could be verified by independent science, they were all in. The world needed this now, and she was promising it.
*******
Fast forward ten years and the entire market is reliant on the perception that COVID will be placed under control. Upcoming elections, decimated economies, and lives lost have made the chase for a vaccine a higher stakes version of the Silicon Valley boom with the money and pressure to match. Large pharmaceutical companies like JNJ, PFE, and MERCK, are moving along slowly, encumbered by their internal bureacrocies and, more importantly, the need to get things right in order to protect their investors and reputations. Merck's CEO Ken Frazier sounds caution at development speed and promises being made, but he is largely ignored after one day of headlines in favor of splashy headlines. Smaller companies dive in and begin throwing their all into the hunt for a vaccine, particularly ones that have yet to have taken a previous trial vaccine development to fruition. Once again, previously untested companies and leaders without a track record are throwing their hat in the ring and valuations are soaring on the prospect of success without any sound accomplishment. Traditonal timeframes of vaccine development--multiple years--are completely cast aside for swifter promises.
Moderna thrives in this environment. Their work in 2019 on an RNA vaccine for Zika was developed in a shockingly low--record breaking--amount of time. Their CEO Stephane Bancel was an excellent motivator, hype man, and cunning salesman--and still is. He has secured distribution deals for his wholly incomplete Vaccine with Longa, and signed up the nation of Brazil to distribute his vaccine to their masses that, while surprisingly keeping the virus contained in comparison to some of its South American neighbors, is in desperate need of a game changer to turn things around for their COVID denying President who was recently diagnosed and quarantined. The deals are on the table before the work is done, but how could they not be? After squeaking by medical approval thresholds which have been loosened by Operation Warp Speed's singular focus on expendience, they are starting the first Phase 3 trial in earnest on a whopping 30,000 people, even more than the initial 10,000 they sought. They're in the big leagues.
While MRNA is securing deals with countries, getting full backing from entire nations, the POTUS, and even the usually grim Fauci, Elizabeth Holmes is awaiting trial on federal charges for doing the same; her high profile investors are all seeking damages from being sold a bill of dreams. Previously celebrated deals with Walgreens and Safeway that fell through when the level of Theranos' failure was realized have caused those companies to feel the affects for years. Among other injustices, the CEO of Walgreens' demise was brought about by his blind reverence to Holmes, and losses for companies and individuals that bet on Theranos ran over a billion dollars.
That's because nobody knew 1) they were lying about their ability to deliver the product, let alone in the timeframe they proposed and 2) everybody believed the product would work because their large investments needed it to. Theranos engaged in outright deception in order to push things along and keep their investors happy. The White House wants to push things along and keep investors happy.
I don't think Moderna is lying. MRNA is not lying because they don't have to, and they are not cutting corners to the point of fraud because they don't have to; the government is doing it for them. Operation Warp Speed is not true government oversight nor regulated expedience, rather it is the US government issuing lax regulatory standards and weakened scientific accountability in multiple areas in order to get the good news out to the public faster on a consistent bases. Theranos created their own rules as they went along; Moderna is playing by the new rules created by our government, and a President determined to win re-election.
****
Three alarms were sounded that let folks know Theranos wasn't what it was cracked up to be which draw distinct parallels with Moderna
1) Sketchy practices by their leadership: much like Elizabeth Holmes would bluster her way into higher valuations with grandiose claims, Moderna does similarly. We often hear about the dates of further progress--both medicinal and regulatory-- before the trial data itself. Just as Elizabeth Holmes repeatedly promised Walgreens, Safeway, and other business entities dates they would be ready to launch the obligations of their contract when she didn't even have a functioning prototype, Moderna routinely tells media and partners about the expected dates their vaccine will be ready before the study phases are complete, or have even started. This puts their promoters in the same no-win situation Theranos investors were in. I've read through several MRNA news articles, and it seems that the date of vaccine production fluctuates between two months and 9 months from now, the only difference being slight alterations in wording. "Vaccine production", "regulatory approval" and other phrases are tossed around in a confusing melange that leads one to believe they could have a vaccine by the fall, but the fine print and wordplay they employ belies science that says otherwise.
1b) Sketchy practices by leadership have already led to lawsuits, but quashed by media and the memory loss granted by time. Suits were filed on behalf of Moderna investors after their initial stunts during early Phase trials in May and June. Remember when the CEO announced great results coming and then dumped his stock, and we forgot about it? His clients--Moderna's own investors--didn't https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20200519006005/en/MODERNA-INVESTIGATION-INITIATED-Louisiana-Attorney-General-Kahn
2) Questionable science: First of all, if they are talking producing a vaccine as fast as they claim, they have to work out a number of adverse effects in their product in a short period of time. While they can cross the 50% effectiveness threshold at producing antibodies, the amount and severity of side affects from their Phase 1 and 2 trials would indicate they have a long way to go in getting a product remotely ready for market. That's fine, because large pharma companies like Merck and JNJ are going through the same things-but they are NOT acting like it means they are ready for showtime anytime soon (PFE has recently changed their tune to swifter, as of today). This is reminiscent of when Theranos swore they could do blood tests on their proprietary devices when they didn't even have the inner mechanics down. What did Theranos do? They ended up using EXISTING devices from pharma giants in secrecy and pretended it was their own proprietary devices, which sat discarded in labs between varying levels of disrepair. Don't be surprised when you see Moderna latching onto JNJ, PFE, AZN and others' "distribution methodology"
2b) the big boys are catching up to them, and their results are getting better than Modernas. A look at the most recent trial data from PFE shows a much more robust immune responses than Moderna's, they just both happen to exceed regulatory federal requirements.
3) People expect them to do the impossible, and that is not their fault. Just like people wanted to believe every business in Silicon Valley had a legitimate shot at an insane valuation with the right promise. Warp Speed for better and worse has made it easier for smaller companies without the expertise to respond crucially to believe they can.
4) Patent issues: Theranos was rife with patent issues, including a battle centered on the fact that they didn't own their own patent for a crucial part of their process. Neither does fucking Moderna! https://www.fiercebiotech.com/biotech/moderna-stock-sinks-as-patent-case-spurs-concern-for-covid-19-vaccine
This is another serious hurdle to profit that investors are overlooking. MRNA already has to keep pricing in accordance with new Presidential mandates and public demand; now they likely have to share the research they claim will be their golden ticket with another party.
******
Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos kept rising in popularity, prestige, and valuation until the reality of unrealistic expectations according to the science took over. In that way, this situation is no different. Just as Holmes graced the cover of almost every magazine including Forbes, Fortune, and WIRED, Stephane Bancel is becoming ubiquitous as we approach Phase 3 results. But then what? Even if they succeed in regulatory approval first, then what? This company is going to revolutionize a vaccine and get it mass distributed before the other companies? After the fall of Theranos, Quest and other diagnostics gaints came in and made changes based on some of their general concept, but mostly bolstered their current business. This won't be any different.
PFE, Merck, and JNJ are the companies that will profit off of this pandemic. This vaccine race is not the creation of apps, or some TechCrunch call for "disruption"; this is the distribution of potentially multiple-shot vaccinations to billions of people that every politican, market, and human is counting on. Passable trial results aren't enough, and a wink and a pat on the back from the President aren't good enough--especially when any Pharma company worth their salt is saying they won't initially profit and is prepared for short term losses. By the time a smaller, less-experienced business like Moderna has figured out how to distribute their first batch of 150,000 doses in conjunction with the government, the big pharma companies will have improved their own vaccine and stolen Moderna's; they will have the public's trust due to not being some new untrusted company and offering at cost, and therefore soak up the remaining government funds grants, and partnerships.
Meanwhile, Moderna will be be fighting for their own damn patent so they can profit.
I don't think MRNA is purposefully deceptive, or evil, or that Bancel is anything like Holmes, but I do believe they are riding a hype train straight to hell. And I think the problem here is not Moderna, but that the desires of the administration have earned them a fall-guy position as poster children for Operation Warp Speed and America's answer to AZN. What I stated in the opening sentence about Theranos applies here to Moderna; they're coming fall speaks more to the time we're in than MRNA themselves.
Ask yourself; next year, when you go to get your vaccination shot, will the name Moderna mean anything to you aside from the faint recalling of some summer tendies you made that year prior?
*****
TLDR: MRNA is being set up for failure without good leadership, realistic timetables, and unrealistic administration pressure. Look for them to fall immensely behind once the hype from being "first" gives way to the reality of need for "best". They on some Theranos shit.
PFE 12/18 45c
JNJ 12/18 160c
MRNA 1/15 75p (wait until MRNA mania reaches a fever pitch closer to Phase 3 results)
VXRT 1/15 15c (Vaxart is creating something critical--a tablet version of the vaccine. Once the big companies have gotten the vaccine ready for production, logistical uncertanties around distribution of multi-shot treatments to billions will send their value skyrocketing, and they are not far behind the others)
I'm now prepared for you all to tell me "Sir, this is a Wendy's" and downvote me for length of post.

2020.07.14 16:11 DotbombVC Looking for an app dev shop for partnership

Seeking app dev shop or possibly solo devs. If your shop is running at 100% capacity right now, congrats. I'm hoping to find someone with some spare time who would like to leverage our skills to build something.
I was the original shark tank (okay, not literally the tv show but I looked at 1000 ideas a year and picked 10 to fund). The best times to launch some ideas were after the dotcom crash and after the GFC.
When the economy takes the next leg down things will look quite bleak and that should be a good time to launch.
I am going to solicit ideas from founders. I'll sort through the mountain of terrible ideas an pick one per quarter as the idea to develop.
I'll provide the seed financing to get it off the ground and all of the C-level functions (cfo, cmo, coo) while the founder ceo sells and gains initial traction. The compensation for the developer would likely be some blended form of cash and equity but I know cash is king.
I need a partner with some extra bandwidth to devote to projects during the next COVID19 shutdown.
If you're interested shoot me a DM. Mostly focused on the US/Canadian mkt but if the right team presents itself I'll consider other markets.
I assume this will get downvoted to infinity but i'm bored during covid and we aren't going back to our normal lives any time soon.

2020.06.17 09:02 saintforlife1 Star investor: Markets may crash so badly the Fed has to start buying stocks

The Federal Reserve is buying junk bonds and corporate debt ETFs as part of its campaign to revive the American economy. Next on its shopping list: US stocks, as Scott Minerd, global chief investment officer at Guggenheim Partners, told CNN Business.
The S&P 500 has skyrocketed 40% since March 23, when the Fed announced its unprecedented experiment with junk bonds. That surge, coming in the face of the collapse of the real economy, drove up market valuations to dotcom-bubble levels.
But Minerd thinks a reckoning is coming, and soon. He expects the S&P 500 will retest its March 23 low of 2,237.40 over the next month, potentially crumbling to as low as 1,600. That would mark a 49% collapse from where the index traded Tuesday during a strong rally.
"There's a point where the Federal Reserve is going to have to pull out a bazooka," Minerd said in an interview. "And I think the option of buying stocks on the part of the Fed is on the table."

2020.05.18 22:46 baby_meatus This is the third capitalist crash this century

Every 4-7 years we have a capitalist crash, each crash is blamed on something else:
-dotcom valuations
-home valuations
-covid-19
All these "accidents" are just ways to justify the terrible economic structure of capitalism.

if you lived with a partner as unstable as capitalism, you would've moved out after 8-1`4 years

2020.04.20 17:53 cardumencapital How to innovate through corporate venturing

How to innovate through corporate venturing
Written by Gonzalo Martínez de Azagra
In this article we review how large corporations take advantage of startup innovation. We discuss corporate venturing: the entrepreneurial efforts by which established business organizations invest in and/or create new businesses (Sharma & Chrisman, 1999, p. 19).
The insights are based on the academic and professional experience of the author (co-founder and CEO of Cardumen Capital, former head of Samsung Ventures Israel) and the experience of the Cardumen Capital team (who collectively have invested $240 million in VC and Corporate VC deals).

The acceleration of disruption

The disruptive impact of technology in markets and the economy is not a new phenomenon. One of the most influential economists of the 20thcentury, Joseph Schumpter already pointed this out in his famous 1942 book “New technologies lead to regular phases of disruptive creation, changing existing market patterns”. Today this phenomenon is even more pronounced as we see technological innovation accelerating and impacting more sectors faster. Established companies are being disrupted by the entrance of startups and large technology companies such as Amazon, Apple or Uber.
The entrance of these agile competitors increases competition and leads to the decline of those who fail to react. Below we show a graph that may indicate that competition is more fierce than ever. Since 1960 the average life span of the largest companies in the USA (S&P 500) has dropped from 60 to 20 years. We believe this trend will continue and lead to faster growths and declines due to technological innovation.
Figure 1. Average life span of SP 500 companies. (Each data point represents a rolling 7 year average). Innosight/ Richard N. Foste Standard & Poor’s.
Successful adaptation to changing environments typically involves learning from exploratory initiatives (March, 1991)”. To respond to these threats, companies are “exploring” open innovation initiatives, and more specifically corporate venturing teams.
Figure 2 Corporate Venture Capital firms. CB Insights

What is causing innovation to accelerate?

A main driver behind innovation acceleration is easier access to technology. Reductions in the cost of compute, storage and network resources have allowed startups to gain access to technology that was out of their reach in the past. We call this the democratization of technology.
Figure 3. Deflationary trends of major technologies. Blackrock
Secondly, the internet and smartphones allow startups to reach to customers globally that were not reachable in the past or required a large network of physical locations. In other words, technology has leveled the playing field for startups and corporates.
Third, more and more devices will be connected and be able to connect to the internet. The addition of AI to these devices will lead to an explosion of valuable data. Not only will there be a larger amount of devices than ever, but the adoption will also be faster. The internet of things means that we will reach trillions of new devices in a short period of time.
Figure 4. The explosion of IoT devices. NCTA — The Internet & Television Association
It took 50 years for electricity to reach 25% of the US population. The smartphone took 5 years. IoT is already all around us (Wearables and health bands, connected cars, connected industry) and will likely continue to take over our daily lives and objects pushed by the adoption of 5G.

The growth of Software as a Service business (SAAS) and the adoption of the lean startup methodology also have accelerated change. This methodology has led to a reduction in the product development times. Startups come up with a minimum viable product, test it in the market and iterate. This contrasts with long traditional development cycles that perfected the product before it was launched.
The democratization of technology was shown empirically by Henry Chesbrough, professor at UC Berkeley and person who coined the term “Open Innovation”. In his research, Chesbrough shows how R&D spending in startups has increased relative to the spending in large corporations. Data shows that the weight of R&D spent by startups today is five times what it was in 1981.
Figure 6. Based on Henry Chesbrough UC Berkeley research with data from National Science Foundation. Survey of Industrial Research Development
These factors are creating the perfect storm. The market is experiencing shorter technology and product life cycles, fierce global competition, and greater diversity in technology (Chesbrough et al 2006). Companies caught off guard without an effective strategy to adapt to this new paradigm will likely shrink or die altogether.
At Cardumen Capital, we describe this phenomenon as the Tech Innovation Vortex. Incumbents in traditionally slow changing industries are being attacked by technology startups and technology giants. These two types of entities are sucking traditional industries into this Vortex. Tech entrants are disrupting these industries with new business models and light speed change.

Corporate Venturing: startups as an opportunity rather than a threat.

For the purpose of this article we define broadly corporate venturing as any initiative by a corporate to take advantage of the virtues of technology startups. Corporate venturing under this definition includes but is not restricted to Corporate Venture capital, corporate investment in funds, accelerators and incubators.

The origin of corporate venturing

Corporate venturing (and specifically investment in startups) started in the 20thcentury with conglomerates looking for opportunities to grow, diversify and create synergies.
In 1914 Pierre S. Du Pont, president of chemical and plastics manufacturer Dupont, invested in a 6 year old startup called General Motors. Dupont invested with both strategic and financial objectives in mind. If GM turned out to be successful, it would lead to more sales of Dupont’s products (leathers, plastics and lacquers, paints) and at the same time, be a great financial investment.
In the 1970s the growth of Silicon Valley and the release of the personal computer led to the second wave of corporate venturing. Private money searching for high growth startups grew fast thanks to changes in regulations. Corporate Venturing followed this trail of private money and began to invest. Some companies invested directly in financial venture capitalists, others created funds with external managers and some created internal corporate venture capital teams.
The third wave was fueled by the dot com boom. The rate of growth of startups and the “apparent” endless potential attracted many more financial venture capital firms but also led to creation of a large amount of corporate venturing teams.
However, many of these newly created corporate venturing teams disappeared after the dot com bubble burst when Nasdaq dropped over 40% in value in three months. The crisis that followed scared off executives who, in many cases, decided to shut down the corporate venturing teams altogether.
Figure 9. Dotcom bubble before and after. Brian Mccullough, January 2017
Today we are in the fourth era. The last five years has seen a significant increase in corporate venturing teams worldwide. Corporate venturing teams are deploying more capital and participated in close to 1 out 4 of all VC backed deals in 2018 in the USA.
Figure 10. CVC participation in VC backed deals 2013–2018. CB Insights 2018
Figure 11. Annual global disclosed CVC deals, 2013–2018. CB Insights 2018
In addition, companies without such a team have begun to ask themselves if they should open one, but how should they think about this?

How to strategize about corporate venturing

In order to define your organization´s strategy you must understand the objectives you pursue and your own organization´s limitations.
Hill & Birkinshaw highlight that corporate readiness is as important as having a CVC strategy/team:
Given the need for flexible exploration in highly dynamic environments, managers of firms in such environments should carefully consider CVC as a viable mode of exploration and renewal. In so doing, managers should assess whether their firms possess the necessary competences to benefit from CVC investments. While the dynamism of a firm's environment can encourage the use of CVC, this motivation must be tempered by a rigorous assessment of whether the firm has sufficient quality and fungibility in its resources to benefit from CVC. Finally, a firm must be able to make these resources available for use by the unit responsible for its investing activities if it is to benefit from CVC. CVC units realize higher performance when they can effectively leverage their parents' valuable resources in pursuing their exploratory missions.
Corporates must invest time in understanding their internal dynamics before deciding what method to use for corporate venturing. This assessment must include understanding the organization’s readiness to work with external, small innovative companies. It requires an understanding of the level of acceptance of management/employees with corporate venturing, their risk aversion, and their acceptance of failure.
Significant impact to a company’s bottom line through corporate venturing is unlikely in the short term. For this reason, it is also important to commit for the long term in order to reap the benefits and see a return on investment.

High level reasons for setting up a corporate venturing team

Understanding the goals of a corporate venture initiative helps design the appropriate strategy, processes and systems to achieve them.
In the long run, a corporate is looking to enhance and improve net profit. The corporate would like to see a return on the investment associated with a corporate venturing team. More specifically they are looking to neutralize future competitors, create barriers to entry, and create new customers for example. Today, corporate venturing is a way to fight off the constant threat of corporate annihilation and prepare for the trends three, five and ten years in the horizon. In addition, the corporate venturing team creates an opportunity to generate significant intangible value through corporate image, talent attraction, publicity and brand renewal. These benefits can help support or even catalyze a change in culture within the corporation to foster open innovation.

Culture and Mindset

Corporate venturing teams require a different mindset from the classical corporate attitude. Large corporates have grown from a successful initial business and are hence more focused on scaling, efficiencies and execution than on innovation. A startup is usually responding to a known problem but creating a new solution to that problem. This requires thinking outside the box, flexibility and questioning all assumptions. Iskender Dirik in his “Manual for Corporate Venture Capital” discusses several important attitudes the corporate venturing team must adopt (below see a modified version):
I. Error Culture1: Mistakes and losses are an inherent part of the system. Not all startups will succeed and not all startups will end up working with the corporate business unit or delivering strategic value. The corporate venturing team must be evaluated as a portfolio and not only per deal.
II. Write-offs: Venture capital is a high-risk form of investment. Consequently, some investments will necessarily fail or possibly only return the sum invested in the first place. Write-offs are a normal part of business, not a reason to withdraw funding. If your team is not experienced expect a lot of writeoffs in your first fund.
III. Minority Investments: Portfolio start-ups are not subsidiaries. You do not own them and you should not try to control them. If you try to do this, the market will spread the word and you will spook future potential partners. Help them help you, offer support, become a trusted partner and they will come to you first before going to your competitors.
IV. Blank Slate: Don’t try to impose your systems or processes in your portfolio companies. You are trying to escape your corporation’s limitations not spread them.
V. Flexibility: Startups are not used to rigidity; this will not be well received. Accept that in their fast-paced environment pivots may be required and speed is of the essence.Embrace the concepts of Minimum viable product and Lean development.Understand that your stringent requirements, quality control and mass market requirements may not be met initially by the startup. Help them reach these requirements rather than dismissing them for not reaching them on their own.
VI. Casual Mentality: Enable a “sneakers and t-shirt” culture. The real value behind this concept is to try to foster a flatter organization where ideas flow freely. Incentivize a friendly and communicative (“open”) culture.

Setting up a Corporate Venturing arm

Once the decision to set up a corporate venturing arm has been made, it is important to take the time to close the loop with defining its strategy, structure, modus operandi, philosophy, monitoring systems and importantly staff’s incentives. Staff incentives are particularly important because employees tend to see investments and collaboration with startups as a dangerous endeavor with little upside if no incentives are in place.

Objectives when investing in startups

Corporate venturing can provide value to a company in several ways. It strengthens the innovative power of the parent company by opening a window to new technologies developed by more agile startups. It searches for new business opportunities as well as revitalizing the core business of the parent company. Below we list the major reasons behind a corporate strategic investment.
Figure 14. Reasons for investing in startups. Cardumen Capital 2020
One reason to invest is to understand a startup and its dynamics before deciding to acquire it. In other words, it is an extended due diligence.
Israeli startup Corephotonics, inventor of the dual aperture camera that you find today in most phones, is a clear example of an extended due diligence by Samsung.
The author invested in Corephotonics2, became a board member, and negotiated a commercial agreement for the use of its technology on Samsung phones. Three and a half years after the initial investment, Samsung acquired the company for $1663M. The investment helped Samsung understand if Corephotonics was a good fit. Also, the investment reduced the cost of the total transaction. This is because Samsung already owned a piece of the company that it purchased at a lower price.

3Exact amount not public
Integration or joint R&D is the most common reason to invest in a startup. After the corporate invests, the startup is better capitalized and may be able to support a collaboration with the corporate with more resources. An investment is not always necessary for a collaboration, but it can strengthen the partnership and help the startup attend the demands of the corporate. This is the structure that Stanley, Black and Decker (SBD) employed to work with Humavox an Israeli wireless charging company. Together they will develop a solution to charge some of SBD´s devices wirelessly, in exchange, SBD invested in Humavox.
At times, the investment can help add strategic terms such as Most Favored Nation, exclusivities or even M&A notification rights.
Corporates can bet on future salesby investing in a startup. If the startup uses the product or service of the corporate, it could end up being a significant client if it grows rapidly. A semicon startup out of Israel accepted an investment from Samsung. In exchange, the corporate requested exclusivity of the startup’s semicon manufacturing. For Samsung, this customer was initially insignificant. However, Samsung used excess production capacity and at the same time was betting on the startup growing fast. KPMG has also decided to invest in this way. It set up KPMG Capital to invest Series A and B capital in promising start-ups around the world. They are teaming up with young innovative companies that will eventually develop to a state of maturity and size at which they become interesting for KPMG’s core business services4.
A corporate may also want to enter a specific marketand partner with this startup to learn about the culture/HR before entering that market. A variation of this strategy is the one employed by Cisco through “spin-ins.”
Another reason to invest is what we call, ecosystem enrichment. This was common at Intel during the late nineties. The iFund encouraged the development of technologies that rely on the parent corporation’s platform. Venture investments could then help increase demand for the corporation’s own products. Those investments accelerated intel´s chip adoption by several months, according to Intel. Another corporate giant, Samsung, made a long list of investments in next generation data storage technologies. These technologies were based on flash (nand memory). One of Samsung’s most successful products was flash and hence the success of these startups, such as Purestorage, led to a higher demand for flash memory.
A corporate may also want to associate themselves with a specific brand, perhaps to reach a certain portion of the population, or renew its brand image. This type of justification for an investment is what we call a Marketing play. In 2011, Samsung invested in a smartphone keyboard company called Swype. This keyboard allowed users to swipe across the phone keyboard without typing. At the time the keyboard was integrated into the Samsung phones and a joint marketing campaign was launched. The investment was aligned with Samsung´s target customer, the Young Minded individual (young or old tech savvy customers).
Eyes and Ears is a strategy that Qualcomm used for a long time. They would invest in interesting companies to learn about the sector or new trend. The idea was to gather market intelligence and be close to large growth areas in search for opportunities and threats. This is the weakest of all reasons to invest but can also provide valuable information and reduce reaction times when high growth startups become a threat.
4Iskender Dirik
In addition to these specific goals, an investment brings value in several ways. An investment and a collaboration with a startup can help change your organization´s culture (Cultural Impact). The change comes about due to the constant interactions with the startup. The corporations must adapt to the speed and style of these startups to be able to work with them. The change is not immediate and will only take place if the corporation works with multiple startups for an extended period.
Figure 16. Corporation and startup culture analogy. Cardumen Capital 2020
Typically, corporations beginning new open innovation initiatives will confront pushback from their internal R&D teams. They will try to disqualify or reject the outside technology, at times even before evaluating it. We call this the Not-Invented-Here (NIH) syndrome. The R&D manager, with time, learns that these collaborations with startups can help him accelerate his own progress by complementing the corporation’s efforts or by covering specific areas. This sort of “outsourcing” or rather “insourcing” brings in many benefits. For one, the startups may have a head start allowing the corporation to access that technology faster thanif they were to try to develop it themselves. Usually the corporation co-invests with other investors. This means that, in a sense, the corporation is piggybacking on the investment of others, getting a bigger bang for their buck. Finally, if the startup fails, the corporation is not forced deal with a more convoluted winding down of an internal team, hence, a faster disengagement.
Despite all of these valuable reasons, one of the world´s most successful tech giants, Apple, does not have a corporate VC. Apple is actively acquiring and working with startups, so why and how are they interacting with startups but not investing?
According to Sharon Wienbar from Scale Ventures, they do not require a corporate venturing arm to keep an eye on trends, in part because of their iTunes store. Apple can already monitor what kinds of apps users are interested in and monitor trends. Additionally, because of its tech dominance, Apple has incoming requests from the best and brightest startups anyway. We believe there are other reasons for not having a corporate venturing team. Apple is a very secretive organization, for this reason it believes in owning rather than investing to have tighter control over information and their product.
Not all organizations need a dedicated corporate venturing arm, even if they wish to engage in corporate venturing. We discuss this topic further in our next section.

Effective corporate venturing structures

What is the optimal structure to work and invest in innovative startups?
Here are four different structures:
  1. Part time venture team
  2. Fully dedicated venture team focused on strategic investments
  3. Fully dedicated venture team focused on financial investments
  4. Externalized venture team (investment in a VC fund)
Part time venture teams are common in medium sized companies (up to a few billion). Capital usually comes from the company’s balance sheet and human resources are limited to the part time involvement of multiple individuals who have other roles other than investing. Often the decision is taken all the way up to the CEO, CTO or CFO. The deal flow is limited, and the investment strategy is usually opportunistic. A passive search leads to few deals but deals that are deemed very strategic.
Fully dedicated strategic venture teams: The author’s prior employer, Samsung Ventures, is an example of an advanced Corporate Venture capital firm. Samsung Ventures’ employees are fully dedicated to deal sourcing, investing and portfolio monitoring.
Samsung Ventures is a separate legal entity with a Management Firm and Fund structure whose capital providers (Limited Partners/Investors) are Samsung companies and Samsung partners (suppliers, etc.). The firm is structured like a financial VC but the objectives are strategic and not just financial. Samsung Ventures’ real mission is to impact positively and significantly Samsung’s businesses. Given the Samsung group’s top line, a minor percentage improvement in cost or top line can be multiple times the value of the financial return of the actual investment. The creation of a separate entity is valuable because it creates a degree of separation between the core business and its investment arm. This separation reduces the conflict of interest and this fact can be marketed. Moreover, its incentive structure is such that it is more aligned with startups.
Fully dedicated financial venture teams: Google Ventures (Now GV) is a corporate venture capital firm whose objectives are purely financial. The mother organization (Google Alphabet) provides the capital but GV is independent and does not pursue any strategic benefits for its parent company. This structure can be as financially attractive as a regular VC, but does not provide any strategic value other than generating brand equity. For this reason, we do not consider this type of structure Open Innovation. It does little to help adapt the company culture (due to the separation between the entities), it does not integrate technologies into the parent company and it does not leverage its company know how (or at least to a lesser extent) for its investments.
There are companies that are operating in a hybrid structure between a strategic and financial corporate VC. Deutsche Telekom Capital Partners is one such firm. Its CEO, Vicente Vento has spun out the management firm from Deutsche Telekom but most of the capital still comes from Deutsche Telekom. Despite being an independent entity, DTCP does leverage its parent company to generate value in its investments.
This sort of Spin offs are common today and in the past. Canaan Partners was originally part of General Electric. Magenta is a separate team originating from Mitsui and GE Capital is considering spinning off again.
**Externalized venture team:**an investment in a financial VC can add significant value to a corporate. Samsung, Banco Sabadell5, LG, Hyundai, many large corporates invest in VCs for several different reasons. The most important reasons are access to deal flow, to a specific market, to best practices and processes. This can be a first step into corporate venturing or a complement to an existing corporate venture team.
Figure 17. CVC and VC structures. Cardumen Capital 2020
5Invested in our fund, Cardumen Fund I, €7.5 milion
Banco Sabadell invested 7.5 million euros in Cardumen Capital’s fund I. Since the investment took place 8 months ago this is what Banco Sabadell has done through Cardumen Capital:
· Deal flow meetings every two weeks
· Accessed over 100 startups in Israel
· Visited 50 startups in person
· Sent an employee to our office in Israel for a month for a secondment
· Finalized an investment in one of the startups sourced by Cardumen Capital
An interesting example of externalizing corporate venturing is Mapfre. Mapfre has invested 25 million euros in Mundi Ventures instead of creating its own corporate venture team. This approach is interesting and was employed during the nineties by multiple corporates. However, in the opinion of the author, there are a few issues with this approach. The conflicts of interest are very large, especially if the corporate sits on the VC’s investment committee or represents a large portion of the fund. If the corporate is effectively investing through the VC this could require a compromise between strategic value and financial value.
Table 1. Evaluating different corporate venturing structures. Cardumen Capital 2020

Our opinion on the different structures to do corporate investments (Table 1)

We believe that corporate venturing and particularly investing can help a company adapt to changes in its environment. Hence, we would always recommend keeping corporate investment as an option. The real question is how to manage this. We recommend selecting a person with extensive experience in venture capital to lead the efforts. A single individual with extensive experience can be capable of executing on 5-6 deals a year if needed. Another valuable start is to invest in a VC with corporate VC experience. This can help the organization connect to the VC inner cycle fast via this “partner VC firm”.

Strategy, Process and Accountability

For a CVC to be successful a corporate must also select an investment strategy (stage, areas of investment, ticket sizes, etc.), KPIs/Incentives, and design adequate processes.
Investment Stages: The objective of the investment determines the appropriate stage in which the CVC should invest. A seed stage company usually requires at least a year to initiate conversations with a corporate. If the corporate expects a product to be ready, then it could be forced to wait several years.
For this reason, a simplistic approach is to aim for deals in Series B and above. At this stage, the startups usually have product market fit, some traction and a sudden death is less likely. However, for advanced corporate venture capital firms or specific markets, Series B may be too late. In Israel, where companies are usually acquired earlier in their development, many corporates choose to invest in Series A to guarantee visibility into the hottest deals before it is too late.
Figure 18. CVCs play. Based on Mac Millan et al 2008
Ticket sizes, follow-ons and terms: The size of the tickets depend on the capital available and many other factors. We recommend corporates to invest the minimum amount that gets them the strategic value they want. We will not dwell on a follow-on strategy or specific terms in this article.
Investment processes:
Many corporates are failing to deliver results because of the lack of clearly defined processes. Traditionally, corporates have strong cultures that do not welcome innovation and suffer from NIH (Not invented here syndrome). A process assigns responsibility to the investment committee and the decision makers in the different gates of the process. This eases the path for the person within the corporate tasked with closing deals with startups. This individual is then aware of who he must report to, what process he must follow and what requirements he must meet. Moreover, a clear process helps analyze where the deals are being stopped within the organization and identify execution issues.
Designing a corporate venturing team requires an understanding of the organization and the use of best practices. It is said that in venture capital it takes $100M to learn the trade. For this reason, a corporate wanting to start a CVC should hire individuals with prior VC experience to avoid a long and costly learning curve.

Teams that work this startups

Figure 19. Teams inside a corporation that work with startups. Cardumen Capital 2020
It is likely that corporate venturing processes will impact multiple teams in the organization. Many times it is the R&D team, within the business units that define the tech roadmap and hence the areas of interest for the corporate. These areas of interest are then conveyed to the corporate venture teams and tech scouting teams. Their role is to identify startups that solve a known problem or fit within this “Tech Shopping list”. These areas of interest are also relayed to the incubators and accelerators of the corporate who, again, use these themes to select startups. The M&A team is usually looking at the portfolio of companies in the incubators, accelerators, VCs at the CVC and even those just collaborating via the tech scouts to identify potential acquisitions.
Each of these teams have different incentives and motivations. Creating an incentive structure that generates alignment is critical for the success of all open innovation and corporate venturing initiatives. It is typical for the business unit to be more interested in the day to day operations than in future looking opportunities because of the pressure to sell. This is the main barrier to fruitful collaborations with startups, who usually require time and dedication.

Monitoring success: Performance Metrics

KPIs or performance metrics are a crucial for the success of a corporate venturing initiative. These KPIs should be monitored and evaluated periodically by management. KPIs should be easy to measure and simple. For example, Is the corporate venturing team achieving commercial agreements between the PCs (Portfolio Companies) and the BUs (business units)?
The exact economic impact of a corporate venturing team will never be known, but with simple indicators, management will be able to validate its usefulness and track changes in performance. The table below shows a list of the most common and valuable Corporate Venturing team KPIs.
Table 2. Created by the author inspired by Phillip Dauderstaedt

What value can a CVC add to a Startup?

A startup can leverage the CVC’s industry expertise, brand name, deep pockets, network of connections and customesupplier base. The brand name of a large corporate attracts other investors, customers and acquirers. Additionally, a CVC can help the startup navigate the corporation if a collaboration is being pursued. It can help secure engineering resources to help with the joint development of a product/service from the corporate’s business unit.
Figure 21. Startups and corporates a mutually beneficial symbiosis. Based on Ersnt et al. 2005
Moreover, usually a collaboration comes with an associated Non Recurring Engineering fee (NRE), which helps finance parts of the startup’s development. It is a common occurrence that corporates may want to use the startup’s technology for a different purpose than was originally intended. In this case, the corporate venturing team must ensure that the BUs do not steer the company out of its original direction and into the corporate’s direction. This can create an excessive dependence on the corporate which can lead to a failed startup, accusations and a bad reputation in the market.

Figure 22. Extract from Samsung Ventures’ introductory slides

Other Open Innovation tools: Incubators, Accelerators, EIRs, Fast Prototyping and Tech Scouting

Investing is not the only way to leverage innovative startups. Some companies do not invest but create tech scouting and business development teams to collaborate with startups. As mentioned earlier, it is also common for corporates to have an accelerator or an incubator or both.
Incubators and accelerators can be broadly differentiated by the maturity of the startups they support. Corporate Incubators support startups at their seed stages to fuel the creation of strategically relevant startups. This is particularly valuable in areas that create innately few startups. Johnson and Johnson, Takeda, in partnership with RM Global created an incubator in Israel to promote healthcare related startups. These startups are specialized in areas requiring FDA approvals and long development cycles. Nurturing this type of startups makes sense since bootstrapping for founders is usually not an option due to costs associated with reaching maturity.
Corporate accelerators tend to support existing startups with space, resources and funding to encourage a collaboration with the supporting corporate. Samsung created an accelerator program called Runway. The selected startups received a $50,000 grant and a business unit sponsor to work on a project for a few months. After the project the business unit would judge its success and consider a collaboration with the company.
There are many initiatives of this type with different degrees of success. The space of accelerators and incubators would require a separate article and we hence limit the discussion to acknowledging them as an alternative/complement to investment teams.

PR / Communication

Corporate venturing is an important part of an “Open Innovation” strategy. “Open Innovation is the use of purposive inflows and outflows of knowledge to accelerate internal innovation, and expand the markets for external use of innovation, respectively“(Henry Chesbrough, 2003). These so-called knowledge inflows and outflows require a clear and well-defined communication strategy to be effective. With Corporate Venturing an organization is trying to attract talented/innovative external partners and future employees. In addition, an organization must ensure existing employees embrace and accept these partners/innovations into the organization. The corporate venturing should have a constant information flow inside the organization highlighting milestones and promoting success stories. The more familiar the organization is with the work being done by the corporate venturing team the more accepting of it they will be. This process of “Normalization” of Open Innovation and the Corporate Venturing function can take several years and must not be underestimated.
External and internal messaging must be controlled by the corporation to ensure that it is aligned with its brand, values and mission. Moreover, it must be reviewed to ensure confidential information and other sensitive details are not shared by the corporate venturing arm or the PC.
Additionally, corporate venturing teams should welcome PR on deals, exits and even collaborations.
This PR will attract other startups, enhance the image of the corporation and provide an opportunity to promote its “open” culture. This “Open” culture is what will connect the corporate to its environment and allow it to react faster to changes, threats and opportunities.
Figure 23. PR and communication is critical for a successful corporate venturing initiative. Philip Dauderstaedt

Conclusion:

Corporate Venturing is a fundamental tool for corporates to react faster to their changing environments. Before embarking in the creation of a corporate venture teams, corporates must evaluate the different structures, select an experienced team, put process in place, devise a strategy and gain full executive buy in.
An investment in an existing financial VC can be a great first step to learn and prepare for the creation of such a team. The VC can propose individuals, advice on the processes and connect the corporate to the market. At Cardumen Capital we will be happy to hear from you if you are considering this option.
We hope you will leave comments and let us know if there are areas you would like us to explore deeper.

2020.04.20 04:53 dbla08 Nightmare in-law story

So, my wife and I went to Taiwan for a year for our honeymoon. There was good and bad along the way, but we grew stronger together through it. At the end of that span, my father-in-law asked (practically begged) us to come back to the states and help care for his ailing mother. She's a lovely person and I'm glad we've been able to lend a hand; but it turns out this was mostly a way for him to not have to lift a finger in giving care (making meals, wiping butts etc).
Fast forward 6 months and he adamantly starts pursuing buying and opening a restaurant; and at the time we (wife, m-i-l, f-i-l, and I) were all quite excited and interested. My wife and I have both been chefs for over a decade and each had our own dreams to own our own place, much of our dreams align in style, cuisine, etc.
We find a place that's a potential gold mine after a full remodel. After putting a month in swinging a sledge and getting the demolition done he starts treating me differently. Little things at first but it eventually develops into him insinuating I have an inability to work in the restaurant (out of no-where, no prompting, no failure to succeed). When he did so, he immediately interrupted my rebuttal with an ultimatum 'either you go take 15 minutes or I'm taking you back right now' to which I put my foot down, tell him I disagree with his assessment, he scoffs at me (and holy shit I had to hold back from unloading on him verbally and physically) and then proceeds to decide that I'm 'out'. Even though the four of us are in LLC as equal partners, with bylaws that state that decisions must be unanimous.
This is a person who has repeatedly claimed he has no hidden intentions, no ill will, etc he's just 'worried' before that incident. Is it just me or is he a fucking psycho?
Edit: Update, a couple months in and this fucking psycho pushes my wife and I out of the tiny house we converted an outbuilding into (entirely out of my own pocket) to supposedly 'give us all distance' and agreed to cover rent for 4 months (equal value of what was put in to the shed, which is now his wife's art studio) and two weeks in he decides to reup his previous threats of trying to sell the building out from under us to try to manipulate my wife and I further. Getting an attorney and the moment he takes action in any direction I'm suing for sabotage. I hope this old fuck dies of a heart attack before this covid shit is done with so we can all move forward and just have a successful business. When someone says '15 years experience, whoop dee do. I've managed projects and consulted/ran businesses" (last part is a total lie, highest position he ever held was VP of development for a pre-dotcom bubble software company) it shows how absurd his mindset is. What's worse is he told that to my wife (his daughter) who he claimed the entire business was for from the get-go. His couple decades of only very vaguely related experience somehow trumps our combined 30 years of direct experience? And on top of all this shit, he's been trying to convince the other partners that I'M the narcissist. So fucking done being nice to this person, the gloves are off.

2020.02.13 18:00 CaptainRoyD Wiki Ambassador at Ground Zero of DNC Email ‘LEAK’

Craig Murray was UK Ambassador to Uzbekistan from 2002-2004. Murray is an author, historian, broadcaster, human rights activist, and WikiLeaks (WL) data mule.
Post Q# 1870 on 8/14/18:
Not seen since WL Podesta dump?
Murray claims to be the middle-man between Julian Assange’s WL and the DNC email leaker. Craig said he meet the ‘disgusted’ DNC insider in a wooded area by the American University in DC and received the data to give to WL.
Post Q# 1515 on 6/15/18:
These reporters and networks have been named in the WikiLeaks to have colluded with the DNC or HRC campaign.
Ambassador Murray had flown from London to Washington in September 2016 to meet this DNC whistleblower (aka Seth Rich). Additional helpers involved with this go-between handoff operation were Kim Dot Com and Gavin MacFadyen. Murray has had long ongoing relations with Julian Assange, Kim Dotcom, MacFadyen and Randy Credico to be an official WikiLeaks operative.
Post Q# 3764 on 12/28/19:
How does one provide content to WL?
The hole is DEEP.
Included in this clandestine meeting/data transfer handoff were the DNC emails, John Podesta’s emails and HRC emails relating to ‘Pay to Play’ schemes operating at the Clinton Foundation. The subsequent public revelation of these emails would alter to course of the 2016 Presidential election cycle.
Post Q# 1195 on 4/19/18:
SR connects to DNC.
Thanks to Bill Binney/Thomas Drake/VIPS partners for proving the DNC emails were a ‘Leak not Hack’. Proven forensically the download data transmission rate was too fast by a factor of 4 to be anything but an insider leak made direct to a storage device/thumb drive unit.
Post Q# 1591 on 6/26/18:
JA in the news.
Think JC.
Server unlocks SR.
Murray was not without controversy during his brief tenure as a British Foreign Service Ambassador. In 2003 Murray left his wife/children for a very young exotic Uzbekistan lap dancer that he had fallen for.
Post Q# 1286 on 8/27/18:
Why no contact w/WL/JA?
Nadira Alieva ran off with Murray and it caused a major international stir. Nadira later publicly claimed “Love had nothing to do with it. It was the quickest way out and onto either the UK/US”.
Post Q# 3764 on 12/28/19:
The (Source(s)):
Feeder [1]
Recipient [1]
Of odd note was that the US has denied entry to Murray back in 2006. Craig was invited to receive the prestigious Sam Adams Award for whistleblowing but couldn’t attend due to VISA issues. Note Murray would ultimately granted travel and received this earned award.
Post Q# 436 12/22/17:
[DNC BREACH/DOSSIER]
[WL]
Murray ultimately would be let go by the Foreign Office due his criticism of his host country Uzbekistan. Craig said that Uzbekistan was ‘torturing’ individuals and was not a “functional democracy”.
Post Q# 4016 on 4/30/20:
Seth Rich internal DL hand-to-hand pass USA?
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher traveled to London to meet personally with Julian Assange. Dana and Rand Paul later conveyed the given Julian Assange DNC email information directly to President Trump.
Post Q# 3774 on 12/29/19:
If Russia didn’t [hack] the DNC (insider breach)...... and US INTEL supported Russia [breach] claim.......
What does that tell you?
Ambassador Murray has been extremely vocal about the deplorable conditions within the Ecuadorian Embassy and now prison. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange had been hiding out at this embassy for 7 years and now deportation hearings from his jail cell.
Post Q# 2499 11/25/18:
[HouseOfCards] re: Maggie NYT re: WL.
Murray is the key central player in the entire DNC email ‘transfer’ scandal. Inquiring minds want to know when will Murray/Assange both publicly testify.
Post Q# 1009 on 4/4/18:
JA?
Seth Rich?
No investigation into WL receipt of information?

2020.01.01 00:46 Emailabuddy As the clock strikes 12...

As the clock is about to strike 12 & reset our life, I thought of you and the journey that we have been on. Still walking the tight rope between the past and the future with a knowing that life is about to be structurally shift forever in this magnificent year that’s upon us. We are together part of a history that’s being written in our own personal capacity & as each cell of our body contributes to us similarly each one of us contributes to the collective universe we create - together we are creating a new world & we collectively have a choice how we want it to look like.
When Saturn Pluto start their 34 year synod on 12th Jan (geocentric) or 10th Jan (heliocentric), we reset the very fabric that creates our little microcosm of existence. It’s the set of life rules, structural boundaries that we live by which help us decide every big decision we take e.g. what road we take when we arrive at a fork. And usually year before this final conjunction is spent in creating this fork cause decision doesn’t just suddenly comes with this conjunction. We are given time & 2019 was that time cause 2020 is showtime. So fork roads were created, choices presented, multiple options created when Jupiter in Sagittarius expanded our vision in 2019 to include more choices in life, making us aware that we are & can be & should be more than we thought we were. We thank 2019 for presenting us through push or pull choices - yes gift of choices that we have.
Now with Jupiter joining Saturn Pluto in Capricorn participating in two other synods in 2020 will tell us to choose. Choose one path. Cause duality isn’t a path of choice for earthy mountain goat Capricorn which will dominate 2020. We are being given the gift of Long term prosperity & growth but at the cost of loosing a few detours & focussing our gifts. There are no wrong choices - but there is always one that our soul chooses cause that’s what we want to experience in this lifetime. What’s the experience your soul wants to choose - it doesn’t have to feel easy - when we try to imagine the path forward it seldom feels easy. Cause it’s new with a lot of unknowns & yeah many always have not made it. But what fundamentally feels like “you”, we didn’t come here to live another’s life - each life is unique like our prints - our prints left after us would be each unique. What legacy you want to leave ?

At this stage I will quote Yoda “Do or do not, there is no try” - Jupiter in Capricorn is Yoda’s words personified - choose a path, make it your own, own it live it eat it drink it in 2020. That’s the road to success in no uncertain terms of this year that’s upon us. Three synods, 5 eclipses, multiple retrogrades of planets in their ruling signs - there is no question that world globally as we know it will turn to what we have never seen before in 2020. We would be writing history. What is yours ? Jupiter in Capricorn rewards the focussed, the well planned, the one that’s willing to burn the boats cause it knows in its soul that he or she will take over the island in 2020.
You have to do one thing in this eclipse season which will accelerate the process - choose.
That’s why Mercury has just joined the party of planets in Capricorn- in this period between the two eclipses - Solar eclipse that just passed on 26th Dec and Lunar eclipse that’s upon us on 10th Jan - you will find yourself getting clarity on your choice. We want to dedicate 2020 to one & only one goal. It’s gotto be material, it has to have an end goal in mind - mountain goat doesn’t climb to infinity - it has an end goal material one - well we are material beings having a substantially material experience & using that for our souls evolution. We do have to be careful though on the material part taking over - don’t forget this is for YOU - this experience this life this goal is for YOU so it has to fulfil you - it’s not about what’s “material” to the rest of the world. Cancer eclipse of 10th January will bring that message loud & clear.
There is no way for us to miss our destiny & cosmos in 2020 will make sure of it - more importantly it will teach us how to successfully live our destiny. Sometimes we get there but don’t know how to keep it.
Saturn in Capricorn creates base of a legacy that lasts - you would never again respond to life’s structural challenges in the way you did before. It’s not a New Years resolution - it’s just the new way of life that’s born & lived - with Saturn - there are no fireworks but we never go back to old rulebook. We can never go back & you would in no uncertain terms know when you are back tracking. 8th January Jupiter Ketu conjunction will remind us of old ways of clinging to a comfort zone we must not go back to anymore. Comfortable is subjective - it’s more of familiar that we are clinging onto - 8th Jan events & those around will give you a clue what boat you aren’t burning still - holding you away from your future as past feels too rosy.
Pluto in Capricorn makes sure we are being true to our power & not compromising it for the sake of worldly success as much as we would be driven to “succeed” in all material senses in 2020. Drive will be at its peak but can’t compromise our truth - you would never again suppress your strength & power to “smooth over” the ripples that you would create in 2020. You would never again doubt who you know you truly are. Again it’s not a New Years resolution cause resolution self extinguish by third week of January- this is the new structure of our life which is there up on us to be lived. And sometimes Pluto pushes us to that optimal breaking point before the element we are made of shifts from dusty carbon to diamond - Pressure will be dialled up from day 1.
Read the writing on the wall of your new life when it comes with a clear messaging on 12th Jan as Mercury is a participant in Pluto Saturn conjunction so new world order doesn’t begin in silence - it begins in a clear exchange of words. Actions of the new start come in full swing in March but January early & bright we know in clear words what 2020 is going to be about. As I said focus is key this year & focus is created early & bright. Mercury is grounded, intellectually, fantastically structured in Capricorn so we discuss objectively, decide for our prosperity & future what’s best & we do the right things. It couldn’t be in a better sign at this time & we couldn’t have a knowing more clear as we would in my view at this time. But voila just like that fate is written & crafted and administrative structures shift, rules seem to be rewritten, decision seem to be decided and we spend 2020 in making the path we have chosen a success..
That’s how I see it.
There will be bubbles that would pop cause Pluto Jupiter synod is known as a bubble buster of dotcom bubble burst fame. Mid year in July we would see certain industries & companies or enterprises which were never meant to be Long term or took short cuts in reporting etc not following the moral code of signature earth sign year - disappear into the thin air from where they suddenly came. Credit will be tight from the get go & we would see corporate greed rampant in first half as earth’s shadow side breeds overly focus on resources & power hog by a few which would ultimately not go well. If there was a year to thoroughly follow a moral code, it would be 2020 cause karma in my view would be instant. It’s not about loosing your flexibility, it’s about showing that you want it enough & you are willing to follow the right route to get to it. Don’t loose sight of following the requisite steps in drive to get there.
Dedicate less hours to wondering why it can’t happen for you & more on making your effort efficient - darkness of thoughts is a side effect of too much earth energy but a working cloud makes its darkness rain hard & makes it count - make every dark thought coming to you count for it indicates how much more you want it - and a strong desire finds a way. Get busy working, planning, finding answer - when you see a dark cloud, make it rain!
Never before a sea of people were gifted with such defining aspects that would shape history - let’s make each day of 2020 count.
Happy new year!

What’s the experience your soul wants to choose - it doesn’t have to feel easy - when we try to imagine the path forward it seldom feels easy. Cause it’s new with a lot of unknowns & yeah many always have not made it. But what fundamentally feels like “you”, we didn’t come here to live another’s life - each life is unique like our prints - our prints left after us would be each unique. What legacy you want to leave ?

At this stage I will quote Yoda “Do or do not, there is no try” - Jupiter in Capricorn is Yoda’s words personified - choose a path, make it your own, own it live it eat it drink it in 2020. That’s the road to success in no uncertain terms of this year that’s upon us. Three synods, 5 eclipses, multiple retrogrades of planets in their ruling signs - there is no question that world globally as we know it will turn to what we have never seen before in 2020. We would be writing history. What is yours ? Jupiter in Capricorn rewards the focussed, the well planned, the one that’s willing to burn the boats cause it knows in its soul that he or she will take over the island in 2020.
You have to do one thing in this eclipse season which will accelerate the process - choose.
That’s why Mercury has just joined the party of planets in Capricorn- in this period between the two eclipses - Solar eclipse that just passed on 26th Dec and Lunar eclipse that’s upon us on 10th Jan - you will find yourself getting clarity on your choice. We want to dedicate 2020 to one & only one goal. It’s gotto be material, it has to have an end goal in mind - mountain goat doesn’t climb to infinity - it has an end goal material one - well we are material beings having a substantially material experience & using that for our souls evolution. We do have to be careful though on the material part taking over - don’t forget this is for YOU - this experience this life this goal is for YOU so it has to fulfil you - it’s not about what’s “material” to the rest of the world. Cancer eclipse of 10th January will bring that message loud & clear.
There is no way for us to miss our destiny & cosmos in 2020 will make sure of it - more importantly it will teach us how to successfully live our destiny. Sometimes we get there but don’t know how to keep it.
Saturn in Capricorn creates base of a legacy that lasts - you would never again respond to life’s structural challenges in the way you did before. It’s not a New Years resolution - it’s just the new way of life that’s born & lived - with Saturn - there are no fireworks but we never go back to old rulebook. We can never go back & you would in no uncertain terms know when you are back tracking. 8th January Jupiter Ketu conjunction will remind us of old ways of clinging to a comfort zone we must not go back to anymore. Comfortable is subjective - it’s more of familiar that we are clinging onto - 8th Jan events & those around will give you a clue what boat you aren’t burning still - holding you away from your future as past feels too rosy.
Pluto in Capricorn makes sure we are being true to our power & not compromising it for the sake of worldly success as much as we would be driven to “succeed” in all material senses in 2020. Drive will be at its peak but can’t compromise our truth - you would never again suppress your strength & power to “smooth over” the ripples that you would create in 2020. You would never again doubt who you know you truly are. Again it’s not a New Years resolution cause resolution self extinguish by third week of January- this is the new structure of our life which is there up on us to be lived. And sometimes Pluto pushes us to that optimal breaking point before the element we are made of shifts from dusty carbon to diamond - Pressure will be dialled up from day 1.
Read the writing on the wall of your new life when it comes with a clear messaging on 12th Jan as Mercury is a participant in Pluto Saturn conjunction so new world order doesn’t begin in silence - it begins in a clear exchange of words. Actions of the new start come in full swing in March but January early & bright we know in clear words what 2020 is going to be about. As I said focus is key this year & focus is created early & bright. Mercury is grounded, intellectually, fantastically structured in Capricorn so we discuss objectively, decide for our prosperity & future what’s best & we do the right things. It couldn’t be in a better sign at this time & we couldn’t have a knowing more clear as we would in my view at this time. But voila just like that fate is written & crafted and administrative structures shift, rules seem to be rewritten, decision seem to be decided and we spend 2020 in making the path we have chosen a success..
That’s how I see it.
There will be bubbles that would pop cause Pluto Jupiter synod is known as a bubble buster of dotcom bubble burst fame. Mid year in July we would see certain industries & companies or enterprises which were never meant to be Long term or took short cuts in reporting etc not following the moral code of signature earth sign year - disappear into the thin air from where they suddenly came. Credit will be tight from the get go & we would see corporate greed rampant in first half as earth’s shadow side breeds overly focus on resources & power hog by a few which would ultimately not go well. If there was a year to thoroughly follow a moral code, it would be 2020 cause karma in my view would be instant. It’s not about loosing your flexibility, it’s about showing that you want it enough & you are willing to follow the right route to get to it. Don’t loose sight of following the requisite steps in drive to get there.
Dedicate less hours to wondering why it can’t happen for you & more on making your effort efficient - darkness of thoughts is a side effect of too much earth energy but a working cloud makes its darkness rain hard & makes it count - make every dark thought coming to you count for it indicates how much more you want it - and a strong desire finds a way. Get busy working, planning, finding answer - when you see a dark cloud, make it rain!
Never before a sea of people were gifted with such defining aspects that would shape history - let’s make each day of 2020 count.
Happy new year!

2020.01.01 00:45 Emailabuddy As the clock strikes 12...

As the clock is about to strike 12 & reset our life, I thought of you and the journey that we have been on. Still walking the tight rope between the past and the future with a knowing that life is about to be structurally shift forever in this magnificent year that’s upon us. We are together part of a history that’s being written in our own personal capacity & as each cell of our body contributes to us similarly each one of us contributes to the collective universe we create - together we are creating a new world & we collectively have a choice how we want it to look like.
When Saturn Pluto start their 34 year synod on 12th Jan (geocentric) or 10th Jan (heliocentric), we reset the very fabric that creates our little microcosm of existence. It’s the set of life rules, structural boundaries that we live by which help us decide every big decision we take e.g. what road we take when we arrive at a fork. And usually year before this final conjunction is spent in creating this fork cause decision doesn’t just suddenly comes with this conjunction. We are given time & 2019 was that time cause 2020 is showtime. So fork roads were created, choices presented, multiple options created when Jupiter in Sagittarius expanded our vision in 2019 to include more choices in life, making us aware that we are & can be & should be more than we thought we were. We thank 2019 for presenting us through push or pull choices - yes gift of choices that we have.
Now with Jupiter joining Saturn Pluto in Capricorn participating in two other synods in 2020 will tell us to choose. Choose one path. Cause duality isn’t a path of choice for earthy mountain goat Capricorn which will dominate 2020. We are being given the gift of Long term prosperity & growth but at the cost of loosing a few detours & focussing our gifts. There are no wrong choices - but there is always one that our soul chooses cause that’s what we want to experience in this lifetime. What’s the experience your soul wants to choose - it doesn’t have to feel easy - when we try to imagine the path forward it seldom feels easy. Cause it’s new with a lot of unknowns & yeah many always have not made it. But what fundamentally feels like “you”, we didn’t come here to live another’s life - each life is unique like our prints - our prints left after us would be each unique.

2020.01.01 00:42 Emailabuddy As the clock strikes 12...

As the clock is about to strike 12 & reset our life, I thought of you and the journey that we have been on. Still walking the tight rope between the past and the future with a knowing that life is about to be structurally shift forever in this magnificent year that’s upon us. We are together part of a history that’s being written in our own personal capacity & as each cell of our body contributes to us similarly each one of us contributes to the collective universe we create - together we are creating a new world & we collectively have a choice how we want it to look like.
When Saturn Pluto start their 34 year synod on 12th Jan (geocentric) or 10th Jan (heliocentric), we reset the very fabric that creates our little microcosm of existence. It’s the set of life rules, structural boundaries that we live by which help us decide every big decision we take e.g. what road we take when we arrive at a fork. And usually year before this final conjunction is spent in creating this fork cause decision doesn’t just suddenly comes with this conjunction. We are given time & 2019 was that time cause 2020 is showtime. So fork roads were created, choices presented, multiple options created when Jupiter in Sagittarius expanded our vision in 2019 to include more choices in life, making us aware that we are & can be & should be more than we thought we were. We thank 2019 for presenting us through push or pull choices - yes gift of choices that we have.
Now with Jupiter joining Saturn Pluto in Capricorn participating in two other synods in 2020 will tell us to choose. Choose one path. Cause duality isn’t a path of choice for earthy mountain goat Capricorn which will dominate 2020. We are being given the gift of Long term prosperity & growth but at the cost of loosing a few detours & focussing our gifts. There are no wrong choices - but there is always one that our soul chooses cause that’s what we want to experience in this lifetime. What’s the experience your soul wants to choose - it doesn’t have to feel easy - when we try to imagine the path forward it seldom feels easy. Cause it’s new with a lot of unknowns & yeah many always have not made it. But what fundamentally feels like “you”, we didn’t come here to live another’s life - each life is unique like our prints - our prints left after us would be each unique. What legacy you want to leave ?

At this stage I will quote Yoda “Do or do not, there is no try” - Jupiter in Capricorn is Yoda’s words personified - choose a path, make it your own, own it live it eat it drink it in 2020. That’s the road to success in no uncertain terms of this year that’s upon us. Three synods, 5 eclipses, multiple retrogrades of planets in their ruling signs - there is no question that world globally as we know it will turn to what we have never seen before in 2020. We would be writing history. What is yours ? Jupiter in Capricorn rewards the focussed, the well planned, the one that’s willing to burn the boats cause it knows in its soul that he or she will take over the island in 2020.
You have to do one thing in this eclipse season which will accelerate the process - choose.
That’s why Mercury has just joined the party of planets in Capricorn- in this period between the two eclipses - Solar eclipse that just passed on 26th Dec and Lunar eclipse that’s upon us on 10th Jan - you will find yourself getting clarity on your choice. We want to dedicate 2020 to one & only one goal. It’s gotto be material, it has to have an end goal in mind - mountain goat doesn’t climb to infinity - it has an end goal material one - well we are material beings having a substantially material experience & using that for our souls evolution. We do have to be careful though on the material part taking over - don’t forget this is for YOU - this experience this life this goal is for YOU so it has to fulfil you - it’s not about what’s “material” to the rest of the world. Cancer eclipse of 10th January will bring that message loud & clear.
There is no way for us to miss our destiny & cosmos in 2020 will make sure of it - more importantly it will teach us how to successfully live our destiny. Sometimes we get there but don’t know how to keep it.
Saturn in Capricorn creates base of a legacy that lasts - you would never again respond to life’s structural challenges in the way you did before. It’s not a New Years resolution - it’s just the new way of life that’s born & lived - with Saturn - there are no fireworks but we never go back to old rulebook. We can never go back & you would in no uncertain terms know when you are back tracking. 8th January Jupiter Ketu conjunction will remind us of old ways of clinging to a comfort zone we must not go back to anymore. Comfortable is subjective - it’s more of familiar that we are clinging onto - 8th Jan events & those around will give you a clue what boat you aren’t burning still - holding you away from your future as past feels too rosy.
Pluto in Capricorn makes sure we are being true to our power & not compromising it for the sake of worldly success as much as we would be driven to “succeed” in all material senses in 2020. Drive will be at its peak but can’t compromise our truth - you would never again suppress your strength & power to “smooth over” the ripples that you would create in 2020. You would never again doubt who you know you truly are. Again it’s not a New Years resolution cause resolution self extinguish by third week of January- this is the new structure of our life which is there up on us to be lived. And sometimes Pluto pushes us to that optimal breaking point before the element we are made of shifts from dusty carbon to diamond - Pressure will be dialled up from day 1.
Read the writing on the wall of your new life when it comes with a clear messaging on 12th Jan as Mercury is a participant in Pluto Saturn conjunction so new world order doesn’t begin in silence - it begins in a clear exchange of words. Actions of the new start come in full swing in March but January early & bright we know in clear words what 2020 is going to be about. As I said focus is key this year & focus is created early & bright. Mercury is grounded, intellectually, fantastically structured in Capricorn so we discuss objectively, decide for our prosperity & future what’s best & we do the right things. It couldn’t be in a better sign at this time & we couldn’t have a knowing more clear as we would in my view at this time. But voila just like that fate is written & crafted and administrative structures shift, rules seem to be rewritten, decision seem to be decided and we spend 2020 in making the path we have chosen a success..
That’s how I see it.
There will be bubbles that would pop cause Pluto Jupiter synod is known as a bubble buster of dotcom bubble burst fame. Mid year in July we would see certain industries & companies or enterprises which were never meant to be Long term or took short cuts in reporting etc not following the moral code of signature earth sign year - disappear into the thin air from where they suddenly came. Credit will be tight from the get go & we would see corporate greed rampant in first half as earth’s shadow side breeds overly focus on resources & power hog by a few which would ultimately not go well. If there was a year to thoroughly follow a moral code, it would be 2020 cause karma in my view would be instant. It’s not about loosing your flexibility, it’s about showing that you want it enough & you are willing to follow the right route to get to it. Don’t loose sight of following the requisite steps in drive to get there.
Dedicate less hours to wondering why it can’t happen for you & more on making your effort efficient - darkness of thoughts is a side effect of too much earth energy but a working cloud makes its darkness rain hard & makes it count - make every dark thought coming to you count for it indicates how much more you want it - and a strong desire finds a way. Get busy working, planning, finding answer - when you see a dark cloud, make it rain!
Never before a sea of people were gifted with such defining aspects that would shape history - let’s make each day of 2020 count.
Happy new year!

Never before a sea of people were gifted with such defining aspects that would shape history - let’s make each day of 2020 count.
Happy new year!

2019.12.31 23:59 Emailabuddy As the clock strikes 12...

As the clock is about to strike 12 & reset our life, I thought of you and the journey that we have been on. Still walking the tight rope between the past and the future with a knowing that life is about to be structurally shift forever in this magnificent year that’s upon us. We are together part of a history that’s being written in our own personal capacity & as each cell of our body contributes to us similarly each one of us contributes to the collective universe we create - together we are creating a new world & we collectively have a choice how we want it to look like.
When Saturn Pluto start their 34 year synod on 12th Jan (geocentric) or 10th Jan (heliocentric), we reset the very fabric that creates our little microcosm of existence. It’s the set of life rules, structural boundaries that we live by which help us decide every big decision we take e.g. what road we take when we arrive at a fork. And usually year before this final conjunction is spent in creating this fork cause decision doesn’t just suddenly comes with this conjunction. We are given time & 2019 was that time cause 2020 is showtime. So fork roads were created, choices presented, multiple options created when Jupiter in Sagittarius expanded our vision in 2019 to include more choices in life, making us aware that we are & can be & should be more than we thought we were. We thank 2019 for presenting us through push or pull choices - yes gift of choices that we have.
Now with Jupiter joining Saturn Pluto in Capricorn participating in two other synods in 2020 will tell us to choose. Choose one path. Cause duality isn’t a path of choice for earthy mountain goat Capricorn which will dominate 2020. We are being given the gift of Long term prosperity & growth but at the cost of loosing a few detours & focussing our gifts. There are no wrong choices - but there is always one that our soul chooses cause that’s what we want to experience in this lifetime. What’s the experience your soul wants to choose - it doesn’t have to feel easy - when we try to imagine the path forward it seldom feels easy. Cause it’s new with a lot of unknowns & yeah many always have not made it. But what fundamentally feels like “you”, we didn’t come here to live another’s life - each life is unique like our prints - our prints left after us would be each unique. What legacy you want to leave ?
Bookmark this post
At this stage I will quote Yoda “Do or do not, there is no try” - Jupiter in Capricorn is Yoda’s words personified - choose a path, make it your own, own it live it eat it drink it in 2020. That’s the road to success in no uncertain terms of this year that’s upon us. Three synods, 5 eclipses, multiple retrogrades of planets in their ruling signs - there is no question that world globally as we know it will turn to what we have never seen before in 2020. We would be writing history. What is yours ? Jupiter in Capricorn rewards the focussed, the well planned, the one that’s willing to burn the boats cause it knows in its soul that he or she will take over the island in 2020.
You have to do one thing in this eclipse season which will accelerate the process - choose.
That’s why Mercury has just joined the party of planets in Capricorn- in this period between the two eclipses - Solar eclipse that just passed on 26th Dec and Lunar eclipse that’s upon us on 10th Jan - you will find yourself getting clarity on your choice. We want to dedicate 2020 to one & only one goal. It’s gotto be material, it has to have an end goal in mind - mountain goat doesn’t climb to infinity - it has an end goal material one - well we are material beings having a substantially material experience & using that for our souls evolution. We do have to be careful though on the material part taking over - don’t forget this is for YOU - this experience this life this goal is for YOU so it has to fulfil you - it’s not about what’s “material” to the rest of the world. Cancer eclipse of 10th January will bring that message loud & clear.
There is no way for us to miss our destiny & cosmos in 2020 will make sure of it - more importantly it will teach us how to successfully live our destiny. Sometimes we get there but don’t know how to keep it.
Saturn in Capricorn creates base of a legacy that lasts - you would never again respond to life’s structural challenges in the way you did before. It’s not a New Years resolution - it’s just the new way of life that’s born & lived - with Saturn - there are no fireworks but we never go back to old rulebook. We can never go back & you would in no uncertain terms know when you are back tracking. 8th January Jupiter Ketu conjunction will remind us of old ways of clinging to a comfort zone we must not go back to anymore. Comfortable is subjective - it’s more of familiar that we are clinging onto - 8th Jan events & those around will give you a clue what boat you aren’t burning still - holding you away from your future as past feels too rosy.
Pluto in Capricorn makes sure we are being true to our power & not compromising it for the sake of worldly success as much as we would be driven to “succeed” in all material senses in 2020. Drive will be at its peak but can’t compromise our truth - you would never again suppress your strength & power to “smooth over” the ripples that you would create in 2020. You would never again doubt who you know you truly are. Again it’s not a New Years resolution cause resolution self extinguish by third week of January- this is the new structure of our life which is there up on us to be lived. And sometimes Pluto pushes us to that optimal breaking point before the element we are made of shifts from dusty carbon to diamond - Pressure will be dialled up from day 1.
Read the writing on the wall of your new life when it comes with a clear messaging on 12th Jan as Mercury is a participant in Pluto Saturn conjunction so new world order doesn’t begin in silence - it begins in a clear exchange of words. Actions of the new start come in full swing in March but January early & bright we know in clear words what 2020 is going to be about. As I said focus is key this year & focus is created early & bright. Mercury is grounded, intellectually, fantastically structured in Capricorn so we discuss objectively, decide for our prosperity & future what’s best & we do the right things. It couldn’t be in a better sign at this time & we couldn’t have a knowing more clear as we would in my view at this time. But voila just like that fate is written & crafted and administrative structures shift, rules seem to be rewritten, decision seem to be decided and we spend 2020 in making the path we have chosen a success..
That’s how I see it.
There will be bubbles that would pop cause Pluto Jupiter synod is known as a bubble buster of dotcom bubble burst fame. Mid year in July we would see certain industries & companies or enterprises which were never meant to be Long term or took short cuts in reporting etc not following the moral code of signature earth sign year - disappear into the thin air from where they suddenly came. Credit will be tight from the get go & we would see corporate greed rampant in first half as earth’s shadow side breeds overly focus on resources & power hog by a few which would ultimately not go well. If there was a year to thoroughly follow a moral code, it would be 2020 cause karma in my view would be instant. It’s not about loosing your flexibility, it’s about showing that you want it enough & you are willing to follow the right route to get to it. Don’t loose sight of following the requisite steps in drive to get there.
Dedicate less hours to wondering why it can’t happen for you & more on making your effort efficient - darkness of thoughts is a side effect of too much earth energy but a working cloud makes its darkness rain hard & makes it count - make every dark thought coming to you count for it indicates how much more you want it - and a strong desire finds a way. Get busy working, planning, finding answer - when you see a dark cloud, make it rain!

2019.12.17 19:27 Wolfenhex The Tale of the Four Milwaukee Workbenches

My partner is quite the maker and does everything from robotics to video games. We've collected a good amount of tools between the upstairs laboratory and the garage workshop, but we don't have a lot of good places to store them. On November 29th, I took advantage of a holiday sale at Home Depot (online) and ordered her an all black Husky 9-drawer mobile workbench for the upstairs lab (where all the other furniture is black) and a Milwaukee mobile workbench for the garage (to match her M18 power tools). They were both scheduled to arrive today on December 17th.
On December 5th, the phone rang and it was the shipping company asking if the next day was good for a delivery. Happy that everything was coming early, I actually took the 6th off from work just in case any help was needed. We were told we'd get a phone call an hour before delivery, but it ended up being 10 minutes. Oh, and they delivered after 5pm, so I didn't even need to stay home that day. But that's alright, holiday gifts are coming early!
A little after 7pm a truck pulled up and they unloaded a boxed up Husky workbench… and that's it. The delivery person said the other one hasn't been delivered to them yet. He showed us the paperwork that specifically said the Milwaukee workbench was not part of this delivery. We signed for the delivery of the Husky and just assumed the Milwaukee would still be coming on the 17th.
On Friday, December 13th, we still haven't heard anything about the Milwaukee workbench. We checked the online order and it said it was delivered… but it wasn't. Each workbench had a separate tracking number (but only on mobile), and the one listed for the Milwaukee caused an error. If we looked at it on the computer, they had the same tracking number (the one for the Husky) which said delivered. Well, this is very confusing. We had to get some things from our local Home Depot and decided to ask the customer service there about it.
The first person we talked to called their dotcom support line. After a long conversation explaining everything that happened the dotcom support said they were going to email over proof that both workbenches were delivered. They hung up and we waited on the proof. When it arrived, it was the paperwork we signed that specifically said the Milwaukee workbench was not part of the delivery. A supervisor came over and was filled in about what was going on. At this point I had the supervisor and two other store support people wondering how this could possibly be proof when it specifically says it wasn't delivered.
The supervisor calls dotcom support back and seemed to have a hard time explaining to them that their proof wasn't actually proof. They were told to contact the shipping company and find out what was going on. They tried that, but the shipping company never answered their phone. It rang for about 10 minutes and would hang up -- repeat. The supervisor called back dotcom support (while still trying to connect with the shipping company on another phone) and kept at it trying to help us.
At one point I had a store supervisor telling a dotcom supervisor that they need to talk to their supervisor trying to escalate this even further up the chain. It also didn't help that on mobile there were two tracking numbers and on computer there was one, because their internal system showed only the one. Eventually this was escalated to someone who at dotcom who was able to find the other tracking number though.
This whole ordeal went on for a very long time. The store supervisor even threatened dotcom telling them that they'll help us do a charge-back on our credit card if they don't figure this out. In the end, the issue seemed to be that the tracking numbers were entered incorrectly on dotcoms end and they had no idea where the Milwaukee workbench was. We were issued a refund for the missing workbench and that was the end of it.
The sale was now over and we still didn't have our second workbench. The supervisor was willing to come down on the price to make it close to what we paid, but we'd still have to pay shipping from the store to our home. We didn't like it, but we did it, and I don't blame the supervisor for this, it sounds like they were trying to do what they could. They did give us a discount on the shipping too and in the end it only cost us $15 more. We did insist that it was new in box and the supervisor went off and found one in the box in their inventory and put our name on it. It would be delivered on Saturday, December 14th (the next day). We finally checked out with the other items we came to purchase and left. I ended up missing half a day of work and spent a little more on the workbench, but we were finally going to get it!
Saturday morning we get a call that our workbench was on its way. We open up the garage door and move the car out to make things easier for the delivery person. A truck pulls up and on the back of it was an old wood pallet with a red Milwaukee workbench... on it's side. It was unloaded and we examined it along with the driver. It was used, in bad shape, and the driver was even taking photos of it. Not what we ordered at all. The wood top was chipped and scratched, the back was dented, there was rust on the bottom of it -- among other issues. We signed to take ownership of it saying that it was received, but had a lot of damage and headed back to the local Home Depot.
Luckily the same supervisor was working that day. They talked to the delivery person, saw the photos and was shocked at the condition it was in. After some digging, they found out the system changed our order to a different Home Depot on the other side of the city because it was "closer" (it was 8 miles away, this one was only 2 and we even have to pass it on the way the other one). The supervisor gave us another $50 off and scheduled a job-site pickup for the damaged workbench. Monday would be the earliest they could pick it up and they wanted to wait until it was picked up before replacing it, but we insisted on it being that day. They agreed and another delivery was scheduled, this time making sure it was the one with our name on it from that specific store. We went back home to wait for our third workbench delivery.
Early in the afternoon, we received another call about a delivery. The same delivery driver pulled up, this time with a boxed up Milwaukee workbench. They unloaded it, the box looked good (no damage to it). We signed the paperwork and took ownership of the third workbench and then they left. Happy to finally have the workbench and everything was over, we start taking apart the box to open it up. We pull off the plastic and we see a giant dent in the corner of the workbench.
https://i.imgur.com/yoBpSAe.jpg
We took a photo and went back to the local Home Depot. The same supervisor arrives at customer support to greet us and we just show the photo. At this point they were determined to do what they could to make sure we got our workbench. They found another one in a box and said they were going to use one of their trucks and some employees to come pick up the dented one and replace it with what would be the fourth workbench shipped to our home. We head home and wait for them to arrive.
As we wait it becomes dark out. Eventually a Home Depot truck drives by the house, turns around, and then backs in the driveway. It's some employees from the store and they have another workbench. It was opened up, but they said it was to make sure it looked good before they delivered it to us. They wanted us to examine it and as we were doing that, the truck's interior lights went out. We used flashlights though and decided that it looked good. The only issue was a small spot of black paint on the back. Happy with it they unloaded it from the truck.
At this point, we had three Milwaukee workbenches in our garage (and a fourth one that was missing). I realize now that I should have taken a photo, but at the time I was just too tired of the whole ordeal and wanted it over with. They took the dented one back to the store and we started loading our tools into the fourth and final one.
Yesterday, on Monday the 16th, we received a call about the job-site pickup. They asked if it was packaged up on a palette and we told them no, it was removed from the palette by the delivery person and didn't even come packaged up. They said they don't know how to pick it up, will talk to their supervisor about it, and get back to us. We still haven't heard back.

I actually tried to keep this brief, there's other issues and conversations that were left out. Overall, it took a lot of time (including time away from work) as well as caused a lot of stress, but in the end we got our Milwaukee workbench.
As of right now, we have the second workbench waiting to be picked up, and the fourth workbench that we're satisfied with. I now can't help but wonder if a truck will arrive sometime today to deliver the first one that was lost.
