Here’s Your Deal
Why Collaborate? Because chance favors the collective mind
Back in 2003, I read a magazine article, “Why Collaborate?” It pointed to the trend of sharing as nothing more than a meaningless fade and something only used for sales/marketing, aka social media marketing (SMM).
Today, collaboration remains widely doubted when it comes to trading, investing, and risk management. The aftereffects of WFC linger. Plus, the “Great Bull Market” has created a cottage industry of “do it yourself” types with little or professional know-how, all caught up in the work-a-holic “hustle culture of social media. Where the trend bails them out of mistakes, at least it did until twice in 2018 and 2020 in a big way. The decade of market timing has started, only a few have noticed.
The point is being open to “teamwork” because it is essential. The internet has broken down the bastions of Wall Street to allow groups outside the boardrooms to develop ideas and methods that can compete with the big boys.
All of that is simply anecdotal evidence to support the notion that collaboration is worth investing your time in. The fact that so many new software apps and add-ons are coming to market that support collaboration spaces and direct messaging – confirms this notion. But to assume that it is all available for free via the public stream of Twitter or Facebook is naïve, which will become clearer as the market becomes more dominated by experienced market timers.
While it is a historical FACT that collaborating in teams, groups, guilds, associations, or corporations historically and today spearheads our capitalistic system, cynicism remains.
Nothing has been invented without group collaboration independent of the abstract model of capitalism of Ann Rand’s Fountain Head.
So, the question is: HOW do you want to leverage your time? And WHO do you want to collaborate with?
If you are a professional advisor (RIA) or a private capital manager, a family capital manager, or a trader, Contrary Thinker provides you with a professional private group to participate in.
Thus, providing you with just not static and isolated ideas in newsletter format or on a blog, that the analyst group thinks is good for you and your people. Rather you have access to analysis that is good for your people and fit your objectives, fills gaps, and assists you in leveraging your time by allowing you to do what you do best. How? By collaborating, through feedback, questions, and request.
