On down through the Middle Ages
When the earth kept going through changes
There’s a business going on, cars continue to change
Nothing stays the same, there were always renegades

Is the only constant change? BPM believes this to be the case. Reinvention and innovation are the hallmarks of any long term executive player. At the risk of contradiction, having a brand for the way in which you conduct business with the world is great, but you need to be able to adapt that brand with the times. Business continues to evolve, and you do not want to spend your life in an Edsel when the new BMWs are coming around the corner. Again, don’t lose focus on your basic mission, but certainly work that mission so that it remains relevant to the changed surroundings.
IF NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION THEN REINVENTION IS A SECOND MOUTH THAT MOM HAS TO FEED
INNOVATE OR DIE

Takeaway: A simple reminder on the power of Leveraged Free Cash Flow (LFCF). If he can pay that much interest and principal and still have cash on hand to expand, then BPM salutes his LFCF advantage.
…who has the leverage?

Takeaway: Luck has always been at the intersection of planning and opportunity. You have to prepare for it – plan it out. If you want to be a planet of consequence, the stars don’t simply align for you. We assume you stay focused on your mission statement (“cause”) and don’t get put down (“for the count”). Luck= Planning + Opportunity. Get lucky today—and be blessed.
…Blessings and Luck
