In a tug of war of interests, it's important that both sides maintain perspective. Read on for five insights into how an entrepreneur should play the game.......
2️⃣ Get professional advice on the future of the company you hold the stocks in.
3️⃣ Use collar option strategies to protect your positions, if you decide to hold on to them.
4️⃣ Do not procrastinate. It will only hurt you and no one else.
Here is what you can do to protect Your Restricted Stocks: 😀
1️⃣ It is recommended to sell restricted stocks as soon as they are vested. You have already paid taxes on it. It is better to cash out and diversify.
If you imagine your investments in different buckets, you will neglect positions that offset or correlate across accounts, which can lead to bad portfolio performance.
Make sure to go over all your assets, not the ones you deal with the most currently.
I spoke to a friend of mine who is in his early 40s, and we happened to talk about the current allocation of his IRA. He was very dismissive of that account, did not care about allocation and instead wanted to talk about his brokerage account.
4️⃣ Look for a correlation between volume and price. For instance, if there is an unusual high acquisition volume in a weekly chart, this usually signals institutional accumulation.
5️⃣ Avoid break-outs during bear market.
I can understand his frustration, If the company makes money, why is the stock gong down?
1️⃣ Bear markets last as little as 3 months and as long as 3 years, but because of invention, entrepreneurship and change in monetary policy, market will always come back.

4️⃣Personal circumstances. No matter how engaged and talented someone is, personal drawbacks and setbacks will often interfere with their career success.

3️⃣ Organizational politics. It’s naïve to think that you can let your talents speak for themselves. In fact, the more talented you are, the more enemies you will make, particularly in toxic and political organizations.
2️⃣ Disengagement, often due to poor leadership. The antidotes to this are finding time to be curious and learn, connecting with colleagues, and talking to your boss about the fact that you’re disengaged.

Most people don’t try their best after they’ve been on the job for more than six months. There are four common reasons for this:
1️⃣ Poor fit. Talent is mainly personality in the right place.
