I have been chatting with Pat Connolly ( @pat_connolly
) about some research he has been doing on a company that offers a luxury treatment only available to those willing to shell out thousands of dollars.
The company requires an in-person consultation in order to reveal the price of their machines. In order for Pat to round-out his investment thesis, he needs a little more information that is purposely withheld by the company.
So he is kind of at a dead end.
But the work he has done so far shouldn't just die there.
As the Commonstock community grows, it becomes more likely that someone on here has first-hand experience with the treatment Pat is looking into.
A lot of people are intimidated by writing memos, because it seems like they need to be these polished, fully finished pieces of work.
But I don't see it that way at all.
A memo is like a puzzle piece, where other people in the Commonstock network might have the other puzzle pieces you are looking for, and we help each other put the pieces together.
As long as you write down the research you've already done and your thoughts, then you are providing value to the network even if it's not a fully finished product.
If you're doing some research right now and you're a bit stuck, I highly encourage you to post a memo about it and see who else out there might have some special experience to help you out.
Also, go check out Pat's memo and see if you can help lend him a hand! He's also just looking for discussion to poke holes in his thesis.
