My dearest friend, You have no idea how long I have waited for a message like this. I must tell you that having a Board of Directors in the 5th Dimension is not as easy as some people think. Go watch "Oh God You Devil" if you want an idea.
Now in 2012 I am making a sequel to the Godfather..the Godmother. I am in the adoption business and just got a memo that Dave Thomas was initiated into the Board of Directors. I must have been the case study he used to petition to join the REALM. Now since their are a huge # of orphans that I need to take care of I had to think of the best way to start. At the bequest of his Mother and Grandmother I adopted POTUS. That is right, I am the Godmother of Barrack Obama. Read the story in Judges in the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. Now I have to drop another bit of news on you. Almost as soon as I got hooked up with The Stars Foundation, the CEO - Cheryl Robeson Clemmons decided she was going to get me a husband in the Cayman Islands. No, I am learning to be diplomatic, so I didn't unleash the hounds. That was a little over a week ago. So I decided the only way to get her off of that kick was to get married. Are you ready for my Significant other!!!.....GOOGLE. Who else could play the role of my husband when I make the movie of Deborah The Great. I give credit to the first model. I am the new and improved model. Wait it gets better. As far as I know, there are at least 100 Deborah J. Boyds. Don't blame me. That is how the Board of Directors works. Now my housemate is the most patient person on Earth. She plays on the Catholic team. Yes, I do believe her father recruited me through the Board of Directors to look after her since he got moved up by the Board.
Stay tuned for part 2. I will always love you. Deborah
That is very true. Not only here but all around the World there are "social" capitalists that invest for a lower return in money because they feel the value of the non-profit or not-for-profit is an investment in the longterm infra structure and in the development of human capital. In my opinion most venture capital is managed wisely and effectively but the rotten apples are the ones we here about in the news and the minority fueled by greed give the others a bad name. Except in electronics, many investors and families with great wealth prefer to remain out of the public glare. I would think this is also a protective measure because few people prey on a poor man if he knows how to avoid trouble but once people know you have money you get no peace. I do not know if I will ever get over the mess Madoff created. What disturbed me the most was the accountants and professional managers that did not do their homework and got sucked in by his charismatic pitch.
Please do not take things so personally. Would you like to have an introduction to all of my capitalist friends. I work many times putting together investors with projects. There are Venture Capitalists and there are Vulture Capitalists. The larger the group the more diversity is to be found. Some people just can't work with open forums.
