Derek Sivers wrote a great blog post entitled "Leadership Lessons from Dancing Guy". I am mentioning this post in this investment blog because an investor when acting contrary to most investors, stands alone and looks ridiculous. I certainly felt that way when;
- in 1995, I invested in Innovative Fibers.
- in 2001, I invested in Amazon.com below $10 while some analysts counted the company for dead.
- in 2008, we went all in with Crocs below $1.
If your facts are right, the investment thesis appealing, and if you are generous about discussing your investment thesis, a follower will show up. This process could turn one follower into a crowd and this crowd could enhance your catalyst.
