    Compassionate Capitalist: Saving Taxes as an Angel Investor.

    in Business

    Karen Rands, Hosts the Compassionate Capitalist Radio Show.  Topics are relevant to investors and entrepreneurs that are passionate about bringing innovation to the market and creating wealth.


    At long last the Federal and State Governments have realized that most job creation comes from small to medium companies that bring innovation to the market and grow into bigger companies.   And, that the primary source of capital to start and grow those businesses are private investors...not the local bank.   To provide an incentive to the very wealthy to "give back" to their local enconomy by investing in local businesses that can create jobs through bringing innovation to the market---ie Compassionate Capitalism --- they have created tax credit and tax incentives.  


    This segment will review the various options that investors have to reduce their tax basis by investing in companies that have not yet gone public.   Investing in companes with tax credits associated with them has two wins...reduced taxes during the investment, and big return at the point of sale of the equity to a public market or another company.


    Are you an investor that is tired of the volatility and unpredictability of the stock market? Are you frustrated that you have little influence to affect the management or operation of that public company? Have you realized that the public stock market is actually pretty risky and the overall return on investment isn't that great?  Then learning how to invest in private companies, purchasing shares in a company before it goes public, while the valuation is still low, could be the wealth creation strategy for you.   Tune in to learn how to join the world of compassionate capitalism.

    The Power of Compassionate Communication

    in Women

    Ever wonder how you'll ever handle those difficult conversations that are so hard to face - with love and understanding? It is possible. Even if you consider yourself intellegent and aware, when those difficult conversations happen, you might become shy, uncomfortable with speaking, unable to get in touch with the words that express how you really feel, afraid of critical judgments, not know how to go deeper, or, be more present in your listening. This class will help you to bring your capacity to communicate to the next level of integration with who you feel yourself to be. It's also for you if you know that you are just not quite showing up, for whatever reason, in your relationships in a way that reflects the values of love and compassion that are an essential part of your spiritual orientation.

And undoubtedly, there’s a hint of all these things in most relationships. But whatever your relationship is with your Mother, there are always new ways to make improvements!!! As we approach Mother’s Day, here’s a chance to talk to author Alice Eve Cohen about her new book, THE YEAR MY MOTHER CAME BACK….where she explores mother-daughter relationships with such warmth and honesty that you can’t help apply their lessons learned to your own!

    Compassionate Capitalist - Angel Investing when you don't have Cash

    in Business

    Often we hear investors say "That company has real potential.  I wish I had the cash to invest. My money is tied up in....".


    If they are high net worth and have been making the income that would qualify them as an angel investor, they likely have built up a portfolio that is worth over a million dollars.   The problem is that the portfolio is likely tied up in investment products that are not liquid or are somewhat illiquid because selling that product would decrease their return on that investment, incur a negative tax event, or a penalty for early withdrawel.   Furthermore, their financial advisors are discouraged by FINRA and the Broker that holds their license from discussing early stage private equity investments as part of a portfolio diversification strategy for wealth creation. So naturally, they wouldn't talk to that motivated investor about other means to make the private investment. 


    We will do just that in this broadcast.


    Karen Rands, Host of the Compassionate Capitalist show, will explore two ways to make investments into private companies when an investor doesn't have cash on hand but has ample accumulated wealth.


    1.  Self- Directed IRA


    2.  Portfolio Margin Loan

    MIRACLE MANIFESTING MONDAYS - Vegan, Compassionate Farming, Health

    in Spirituality

    So many people are needlessly sick.  So much land is wasted on growing food for animals that are then killed, bringing the energy of fear and death into the very food that carnivores eat.  Even plant-based diets can be negativized if people growing the food are angry, resentful, and the like.


    What's a person to do?  Definitely, eat more vegan, vegetarian, seed food!  Bless it!

    Compassionate Capital Show - the World is Flat and that means Competition

    in Business

    Karen Rands returns with her Compassionate Capitalist radio show to discuss how a global market impacts entrepreneurs & investors when it comes to predicting the success of an early stage company.    The best selling book "The World is Flat" by Thomas Friedman, set forth the premise that business leaders should view the world as a level playing field in terms of commerce, where all competitors have an equal opportunity.  Although books is a decade old, the idea is relevant in todays world just as much back then. 


    In this episode, Karen will explore what this means to entrepreneurs and investors when it comes to launching and growing a company.   The ying/yang of a "flat world" is competition & collaboration.  When it comes to bringing innovation to market it is easy to think that a company has "no competition".   This is rarely the case.   The competition may be indirect, shifting the staus quo, or simply in another part of the world that neither the entrepreneur or investor knows about.  Not anticipating the existence of competition creates a false sense of safety.  Likewise, identifying potential collaboration partners can strengthen a company before they are faced with direct competition to remain in a place of dominance.
