  • -Congrats to Neil Alexander. He’s a talented musician and amazingly informative about his craft.
    -Crowd speculating: “…convinced will do well.” Hmmm, I’ve heard something similar before. Oh yeah…”I’m confident…” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INmqvibv4UU (1:20 in). Because this time is different. Title 3 of the JOBS Act, passed this October, exempts crowd funding from registering with state regulators and their ‘blue sky laws’ designed to prevent fraud and protect investors. As well, investors must hold their shares for one year before selling. There after, if demand has dropped, you may become a long term investor.
