Dave Kerpen – Doing Thorough Research Will Save You From Losing Money

My Worst Investment Ever Podcast

Dave Kerpen is a serial entrepreneur, New York Times bestselling author, and global keynote speaker. Dave is the co-founder and co-CEO of Apprentice, a platform that connects entrepreneurs with the brightest college students, as well as the co-founder and CEO of Remembering Live, a virtual memorial service company. Dave is also the founder and Chairman of Likeable Local, a social media software company serving thousands of small businesses, and the co-founder and Chairman of Likeable Media, an award-winning social media and content marketing agency for big brands. Dave’s newest book is “The Art of People: 11 Simple People Skills That Will Get You Everything You Want.” “The greater the risk, the greater the reward.”Dave Kerpen Worst investment everDave was a young entrepreneur when he got caught up in an opportunity to invest with a venture capital firm. He was drawn in by the allure of feeling like a venture capitalist, and it seemed exciting to be investing in fantastic deals and alongside terrific people.This excitement blinded Dave from vetting the opportunity nor understanding it first before putting $30,000 into it. This was quite a substantial amount for him at the time.Lack of communicationWhat took Dave aback concerning this investment was a real communication gap between the folks running the firm and their investors. The investors never received any communication regarding their investment or how the company was performing.Dave felt uncomfortable about the poor communication after a while. He even reached out to one of the other investors, who confirmed that he was also going through the same lack of communication experience.Where there is smoke, there is indeed fireThe lack of communication continued, and the fund was eventually shut down. Dave never saw a dime, but worse, he never got to know what happened to his money, which, sadly, he lost.Lessons learnedForget the glitz and glamour; understand your investment firstDo not get caught up in the glitz and glamour of investing. Instead, do your homework to understand what you are getting yourself into. Do thorough research until you feel more comfortable about the investment.Understand risk and rewardBefore you invest in anything, make sure you understand what the risk is compared to the reward. To protect yourself from risk, invest different amounts of money based on your ability to stomach the loss. Do not invest everything you have into one speculative investment venture. Instead, diversify your investments.Understand what your communication needs as an investor areKnow what your communication needs are. Go in knowing if these needs are going to be met or not. First, you should have access to the publicly available data regarding any investment you are interested in. You should also be able to get regular communication regarding the performance of your investment.Andrew’s takeawaysScammers will come at you genuine peopleThere are plenty of scams that come across as extremely legitimate. In fact, that’s what they are good at, looking real. So be very careful about the people you invest with.Choose an investment option that gives you liquiditySome investment options have more liquidity than others. If you put your money into a listed company in the stock market and things do not go well, you have the option of exiting and getting money invested. But when you go into private equity or venture capital, it is much harder to exist and make money out of it.Size your position and diversify to avoid losing moneyIf you do not size your position, you run the risk of being wiped out. So if you find an opportunity that you are excited about, put a small amount of money in it instead of all your money, then watch how it performs and increase it over time. Invest the rest of your money into other different positions.Actionable adviceDo thorough research. This will save you from losing money.No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsDave’s number one goal for the next 12 months is to focus on his health by getting fit, eating well, exercising, and getting a little bit more sleep.

Barber, “Keeper of the Keystone” and “Key to Dragon Falls.” Dave Kerpen heads up Likeable, a social medium a software company that serves thousands of small business, and he’s the Chairman of Likeable Media a social media and content marketing agency for big brands. He’s written several amazing books but today we are focusing on his book, “Likeable Social Media.” “Greta Gar Bitch” is Kimber Leigh’s true story of surviving severe child abuse in the most unthinkable ways. She lost her mother and 2 brothers at their own hands, but she's turned that abuse and awfulness into a beautiful life. M. Kuriel’s book, “Sensing Strange and Twisted Travels,” is a collection of short stories following Don Orville, whose whole life implodes after he helps a blood mage. Out of the ruin, he launches a career as a travelling storyteller by visiting many unusual places in search of new audiences and the stories they share with him. In C.L. Barber’s book, “Keeper of the Keystone,” the night a dad goes missing on his son’s first birthday, a triple murder stuns the neighborhood. The tragic events of that night remain clouded in mystery. Fourteen years later, the arrival of an old family member, leads to a 15-year-old Michael and his friends finding themselves in court full of intrigue and a desperate struggle for survival.
