I have lived in the world of M&A for more than 10 years. It is the pinnacle of capitalism, a battlefield where numbers, money, rule the world. Money is important, and it is an easy-to-understand indicator for everyone. But what is truly important is invisible. It can never be replicated. I believe that the essence of value is inherent and fleeting beauty. Money bleaches that uniqueness and makes it anonymous. It puts a price (a number) of annual income or a price on your work, which is very important to you.
For eight years, I have been working through business and publishing to somehow change this social structure in which numbers rule the world. The first of these businesses was the Valuation Matrix, which expresses the reality of a company in a way that anyone can understand. This system was sold to Click Securities in 2010, but under new members, 201 We are relaunching the system in 2013 with new members.
My vision for the Valuation Matrix is to make it possible for anyone to intuitively and instantly understand the reality of a company, and to create a medical record of every company in the world by 2015. My goal is to create a medical record of every company in the world by 2015.
Why would we do that?
It goes back to the vision of our company, Shares.
Every person should live his or her own life.
So, what is living?
I believe that life is a creative process.
To give shape to what people truly want to do, realize, and express, that is creation, and that is life. That is why we at SHARES, Inc. have defined our mission as to provide energy to the possibilities of creation.
We created the Valuation Matrix because we want to create a society in which anyone can understand the reality of a company, and in which citizens' money (energy) flows directly to good businesses and companies.
If the world is created as a result of repeated trades by financiers looking only at numbers without the participation of citizens, as is the case today, or if citizens directly invest their energy (money, thoughts, and time) in companies and projects to create a new world, the latter is obviously the better way to go. With the increasing division of labor, we created the Valuation Matrix to create the easiest, lowest-risk, highest-return, and most enjoyable way for busy citizens to "connect" with the companies, businesses, and projects that are the agents of creation.
The valuation matrix is still evolving rapidly.
It is easier to understand, more intuitive, and expresses the value of a company in a more intrinsic way.
The Valuation Matrix will be used by many people to exchange ideas and opinions, to speak up for the company, and to guide the company in the right direction.
Of course, we will also develop the Valuation Matrix so that investments themselves can be made with a single click.
Anyone can participate indirectly or directly in the company or project in which they have invested.
We at SHARES will do our best to be an infrastructure for the post-capitalist era, a new system that connects people's thoughts, creates value, and increases happiness with as little money as possible. We appreciate your support, advice, and assistance. Shares is always open to everyone!
