Recently Ted Bauman sat down with the Ideamensch.com to discuss some of the strategies that he believes it made him successful as a writer for Banyan Hill publishing. Ted Bauman is a celebrated graduate of the University of Cape Town and he holds dual degrees in both economics and history. This is given him a unique perspective as he works to produce Alpha Stock Alert, Plan B Club, and The Bauman Letter. These articles are specifically designed to help his readers protect their assets and privacy as well as learn more information on migration issues and lower risk investment strategies. He has proven to be an exceptional source in this area.
One of the first questions that Ideamensch wanted to ask him is how he is so capable of maintaining his success. Sometimes, success can be followed by a downhill run. Ted Bauman explains that he is so successful because he has mastered the art of time management. He believes that time management is very important to his overall success. One of the most important parts of his day is in the morning. He explains to his interviewer that because this part of his day is so important he makes it a habit to never engage in any other activities during that time. It has worked out very well for him.
As someone who is very invested in the economy one of the trends that Ted Bauman says excites them the most is that his readers are beginning to question the nature of how the economy works. He likes knowing that his readers feel empowered with the information that he is giving and also take that knowledge to go and do their own research. As a writer, he feels it is very important to conduct good research. He hopes that as people become more aware of these events in society they will take steps to be more financially stable. When he started writing for Banyan Hill publishing he wanted to give his readers the freedom that they needed to be financially sound. He hopes that they take the information that he provides and use it to reach that goal.
In the mid-2000s, entrepreneur David Zalik was working on his online consultancy firm, OutWeb. The company had a large number of retail home improvement clients, including the likes of Lowe’s, Home Depot and Benjamin Moore. As part of his work with these firms, Zalik got to take a close look at their business model. But he immediately noticed that something was amiss.
Many of the companies were losing huge amounts of money. But this result was hidden. This was because these losses involved deals that were never getting done in the first place. Customers who wished to remodel their homes were coming into the stores or dealing with contractors who bought from these stores only to find out that what they thought their projects would cost was only a fraction of the true estimated price.
This would inevitably cause severe sticker shock, and, in many cases, the customers realized that they simply didn’t have enough money to complete their desired projects. This gave Zalik the idea for GreenSky Credit. By creating a form of instant bridge financing at the retail level, GreenSky would be able to help customers get their projects done and would help home improvement companies and contractors to earn billions that otherwise would have fallen through.
All in on GreenSky
But this idea would hinge on yet-unproven technology. Zalik had to develop a user interface that would allow for instant approval of loans in the five- to six-figure range. He quickly discovered that although the business model was extremely sound on paper, no bank was willing to lend him the money to start the company. As a result, Zalik ended up liquidating his entire $12 million commercial real estate empire and going all in on the founding of GreenSky. If the company would have failed, Zalik would have lost everything.
