Strategy, finance, marketing, entrepreneurship…

You know what’s awesome?

Social Media Consulting

Day one was rad. There’s a lot of demand. We are successfully combining knowledge of Internet applications and social media with traditional marketing best-practices. And awesome, of course. T-Mobile is a runway model home for the holidays dressed in her sweatpants, and we wholeheartedly recommend that Microsoft buy Abercrombie and Fitch because they would both […]

Working at Wunderman

Next week I will be rejoining Wunderman as a Strategist on the T-Mobile account. Life is good, and I have therefore been drinking too much Champagne. Haha — as if that’s even possible! Tweet

M.B.A.

After all the hard work, travel, and fun of the last two years, I am graduating this Saturday w/ a Masters degree in Business Administration. 「経営学修士」is how you say it in Japanese. Booyaahh! And the bottle of Dom Pérignon is chilling in the fridge. Tweet

Market-neutral trading strategies

On Tuesday, I’m going to be talking about a market-neutral trading strategy that has made money for hedge funds for a long time. It was documented in the below form by Mary E. Barth and Amy P. Hutton, and it goes like this: →1. Rank publicly traded firms by amount of balance sheet accruals (as […]

Prior to the panel discussion, I will be giving […]

I went to Palm Springs

I know you don’t really want to hear about my vacation to Palm Springs, Santa Monica, and Beverly Hills, so instead I will list the “DEMOSpring 2010 AlphaPitch Companies” that exhibited over the weekend at the Desert Springs resort in Palm Desert… Zosh AirSet AppVoyage AppWhirl, Inc. bloson.com Restaurant 2.0 NavID/BrandFolium CalendarFly Closely, Inc.

Fingernails

I’ve had just such a crazy week. I didn’t get much sleep because Ciel was cranky. Also: Eiko’s mom went back to Japan, I hosted another Dollar Object™ DJ night, continued my work analyzing the marketing & engineering depts at Necodo/BeetLabs, and got in a car accident. In other news, I am excited about business […]
