The Fortnightly Business Report
Posted on July 23, 2017
Before leaving Portland I met with some of the larger shareholders to talk about moving to Los Angeles and the recent frustrations around votes and accountability. Some shareholders have suggested a board of directors while others don’t think a board fits the publicly traded person model. Some want smaller questions and others want questions of more importance. Everyone wants more accountability, with some suggesting more formal reporting and some like the the idea of a regular vlog.
Shareholder Steve Schroeder also brought up the idea of regular updates and suggested an idea to combine the accountability of a “board” in the form of a shareholder representative with the immediacy of a vlog in the form of a webinar-like presentation. We talked about some of the details and have decided to put it to a vote:
Proposal: The Fortnightly Business Report. The Fortnightly Business Report (TFBR) will document the progress, process, and new opportunities of KmikeyM every two weeks. Hosted and produced by Steve Schroeder it will create accountability and regular updates on all things KmikeyM. Think of it like the CNBC of KmikeyM. This proposal is for ten episodes (two a month, lasting until the end of 2017) as a “first season” of The Fortnightly Business Report.
The Fortnightly Business Report will cover changes in vital stats like stock price, market cap, personal health and finances, and some intangibles like what books, TV, and films are being consumed. A major focus on the progress (or lack of progress) on various shareholder proposals and current projects, any press or media opportunities, and also provide a mechanism for shareholder interaction.
Steve was the tenth person to create an account on KmikeyM, has maintained his position as a major shareholder for almost 10 years, and was the shareholder activist who demanded control of my personal life and not just projects. We co-hosted a podacst together, built a blog publishing site, and he has always pushed me and held me accountable.
