SORT BY Relevancy
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.
This segment of the Compassionate Capitalist Radio Show will explore the factors that motivate a High Net Worth person to invest in a private company. During this half your show, you will learn about the emotional and psychological triggers that can cause an investor to invest by purchasing a portion of a private company or to reject the opportunity.
Entrepreneurs will benefit by understanding what the motivations are and therefore what they need to do or change to increase their odds of attracting investment.
Investors will benefit by understanding their emotional triggers and balancing those motivators with objective critieria to help decrease the likelihood of making too risky of an investment.
Karen Rands has worked with entrepreneurs regarding attracting capital for over a decade. She has spent countless hours with investors discussing what caused them to invest and what did they learn from the investments that made money and those that did not. She will share some of those insights during this show.

Crowd funding here, Crowd funding there, Crowd funding seems to be everywhere. But what does it mean today and what does will it mean to the entreprenuers out there trying to raise capital?
The celebratory feeling Entrepreneurs had when the Jobs Act passed in 2012 has turned to one of a jilted bride left at the alter. All the promise and commitment of a great future, but left in the cold to wonder what could have been.
The SEC is the regulatory body for all investment transactions. They have valid concerns that if they move to quickly and approve regulations without thinking through the ripple effects they could lead to another economic collapse like the housing bubble, or the dot.com bubble, or the S&L bail out... each of which was allowed to happen by a regulatory changed voted in by congress but not managed properly by the SEC.
Tune in to get an update from the Compassionate Capitalist, Karen Rands, as she tries to cut through the noise to give you clarity on what you can be doing now to position yourself for success in these uncertain times, and what you can likely expect relative to crowdfunding regulation this year.

Karen Rands once again brings our audience of investors and entrepreneurs the latest news Carbon Credits.
Black carbon plays a much bigger role in global warming than many scientists previously thought. Black Carbon is produced as a by product from the CO2 that is emitted when any thing is burned.
When there is one environmental factor that has potential to impede sustainability across the board for all business and community, there is a profound economic impact as a result. Decline in business viability and quality life hurts the economy. Yet when there is an innovation that changes the way things are done so as to no longer produces the same amount of the bad Black Carbon, or even produces the opposite effect, and that can be measured, a financial value can be placed on that.
When something can be measured and valued, it becomes the subject of trade and finance - an economy. That is New Carbon Economics, and we are the threshold of profound shifts and potentially the start of the bubble Karen and Ian talked about nearly 3 years ago.
Tune in to hear the latest - the money that is available, the growth of the free market, and how entrepreneurs can find out if the qualify for this type of value add to their business model.

Tell your Friends!
America is fertile ground for entrepreneurs to take innovative ideas from concept to reality. Often they create wealth and with that comes the danger of becoming a target for lawsuits. America is a litigious society. Disgruntled share holders, former employees, and disatisfied customers have potential to seek compensation through a lawsuit that could impact the value of the company, your personal wealth and the intellectual property you think is beyond reach. Insurance is simply not enough if you haven't taken specific measures to protect those assets.
Our special guest is Kevin Day, founder of Day & Associates, one of the top three law firms in estate planning focused on Asset Protection law and complex high net-worth issues. Kevin Day is a well respected speaker at business tax planning, estate planning & investment planning conferences throughout the United States and Canada.
On this show you will hear how you can isolate your wealth from potential liabilities, using Domestic Lawsuit Proof trusts, Offshore trusts, & Privacy Companies. Certainly those with high net worth, already know that they need Asset Protection. Their wealth alone makes them a target to malicious lawsuits, so they seek experts like Day & Associates out. Small entrepreneurs and investors, can also put lawsuit protection strategies in place without an offshore trust & with limited expense.
