I have some First Aid / DYI home medical care knowledge (don't try it at home lol).
My biggest challenge...
Financially it is about setting a strategy or a game plan and sticking to it. In bad times it is easy to panic and change the game plan and in good times it is easy to get greedy and also want to change the game plan, but long term success means sticking to the game plan, no matter what, something I have learned the hard way more than once, lol.
I want to invest in...
Software, fintech, technology in general
I can be most helpful at...
I have over 20 years as a technologist and I am happy to share my insights working in startups, medium sized, and Fortune 500 companies.
I think we can fix America by...
Rebuilding intentional communities because when people have more quality connections they are less likely to gravitate towards antisocial polarizations.
My most influential mentor is...
I always recommend reading "Walden" by Henry David Thoreau as a good way to ground oneself and understand what is truly important in life - there is a lot more to a life well lived than just investing. :)

Curious how well the companies have done? Or how many raised follow-on financing?
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
