Erik: How are you learning to make better investment decisions?
0:10
Garren: I don’t necessarily know that I’m getting better in my investment decisions,
0:16
I would say that the folks I invest in are getting better at executing on what they’re
0:21
taking on. My investment decisions are working out more often than not but I wouldn’t say
0:30
that’s directly related to my process, I’d say it’s more very fortunate to know folks
0:38
that are up to some really, really neat things. An example would be investing in—I love
0:45
to invest in ideas and they’re sitting all around us all the time, and so I actually
0:50
had dinner with a friend of mine a couple of weeks ago and he was—he’s got what I
0:55
think is a fantastic idea, I think it fits his personality perfectly, and I simply asked
1:01
him. I said, boy, I said, I think you have a fantastic idea, I’d love to—if the opportunity
1:06
presents itself, I would love to invest. And it doesn’t have to be on a significant level,
1:12
I think so many folks have this idea that if you’re going to invest, you have to have
1:16
a tremendous amount of money. Well, there’s a lot of smaller projects out there. There’s
1:19
a lot of little ideas that have the potential to be big, so a relatively small amount of
1:27
money can get you into a place where you’re supporting that idea and I think that’s important
1:35
to think about is what is your intention with an investment? You know, my intention—sure,
1:42
on the backend, it’d be neat if it makes me some money, but my intention is truly to tangibly
1:49
support what that person is up to. And I set that intention inside of myself at this point
1:58
with any investment that I make, and that’s not a feeling I get when I buy a stock or
2:07
something like that. I can only—At least for me, I’ve only been able to find that or
2:13
have that feeling that my intention is support when I’m supporting a person or a small organization
2:23
and what they’re up to.
