In The Weeds: 10 Minutes - Carl Richards
Using a Sharpie and a piece of card stock, Carl Richards captures complex financial ideas in simple, easy-to-understand sketches.
The Behavior Gap
It all started when Carl noticed something interesting: the real life return of the AVERAGE INVESTOR was dramatically lower than the return of the AVERAGE MUTUAL FUND. In theory, this gap shouldn’t exist, but investors were leaving money on the table and didn’t understand why it happened. Carl named this phenomenon the Behavior Gap™.
Company Presentations: 30 Minutes

Things that I've learned as an entrepreneur:
Power Practical is about putting power into the hands of the people. Our focus is to provide alternative personal power sources and efficient electronic devices, to help people make the first step towards a more energy independent and sustainable lifestyle. We are developing a number of portable power generators, and have just launched our first product the PowerPot

1. Kickstarter is awesome
TaskEasy is a brokerage that commoditizes services for users who pay contractors for standardized units of work, “Tasks,” rather than hours of labor. There’s no time consuming contractor bidding required … you just specify your location, select and describe your desired service, choose your desired quality, set your preferred schedule, confirm your contractor, and pay. We take care of the scheduling, contractor interaction, and follow-up. It’s a revolutionary way to simplify your life and lower your costs.
Founder & CEO
1) Spending more time "doing" and less time "organising" a business.
Corner Dives around 8:00 p.m., get food, and then each company heads to a corner, and anyone interesting in learning more or helping dives right in with them. General networking in highly energized setting.
