An Interview with BroadwayDan

Last updated: 9/26/2017
The Fool:
If you could go back in time and witness one event in history, what would you go back and see?
BroadwayDan:
Shakespeare writing "To be or Not to be" would be up there.
The Fool:
How do you define success?
BroadwayDan:
If the people you're supposed to love know you love them you're successful. Doing what you want when you want how you want not bad either.
The Fool:
What's the best product you use that most people don't know about?
BroadwayDan:
If you chrome the dome, go with Nivea. Perfect amount of cling with no drag and leaves my gorgeous bald head smooth as a baby's tuchus.

How I Invest

I trust my gut - that I know greatness when I see it - elite leadership, clean story, valuable products that may dominate or take a meaningful piece of a gigantic industry.
