In his magnificent book, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill wrote –
No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind…When a group of individual brains are coordinated and function in harmony, the increased energy created through that alliance becomes available to every individual brain in the group.
In giving meaning to Mr. Hill’s idea, let me announce a new initiative from Safal Niveshak – Meetups @ Safal Niveshak – to bring the tribe members together, face-to-face, to channel the energy for a shared vision – simplifying the art of value investing and making it available to as many small investors as possible, around the country.
This idea is really simple – To meet regularly in small groups across cities in India…to learn and grow together in our investment journey.
While we see the meetups evolving over time, here are what we believe to be the four founding pillars of this initiative –
- Learning – Tribe members connect face-to-face to learn from each other’s experience in investing.
- Inspiring – Experienced investors in the meetup inspire new investors (the latter surely need a lot of inspiration, and the right one).
- Sharing – Members share their investing journeys, experiences, key learning, and big mistakes.
- Networking – Members in a city get connected with each other, and maybe extend the tribesmanship by becoming friends.
The goal is NOT to bring together people so that they can share/ask for stock tips or engage in any ‘intelligent’ debates. The goal IS to connect and get together to share thoughts, experiences, learning, and mistakes with others…and also learn through peer support.
There will be no teachers or gurus here. No set agendas or proposed beliefs either. The idea is to just come together face-to-face, talk, share, and learn from each other about how to invest our money sensibly.
How Does It All Start?
Here is a simple plan to start this initiative.
If you are interested to organize a meetup of investors in your city, or just join one, simply click here to fill a small form.
After collecting data of interested people, Anshul and I will finalize our travel plan to initiate the first meetups across various cities in India. Then, once we connect people in their respective cities, we will let the meetups happen and evolve on their own.
That’s the entire plan as of now.
If you think this is too rudimentary a plan, let me say that even we (Anshul and I) think the same.
But please note that we just want to sow its seeds here without any grand expectations. If it doesn’t sprout after we give it some time to work, we’ll kill it. But it’s an idea that deserves a chance and we find it too important to ignore. Who knows how big this can grow unless we give it a try.
Together We’re Better
Safal Niveshak’s journey that started four years back now craves for a wider path as more tribe members join in. And I will be happy to connect you with others living close to you on this path of helping you become simple and sensible with your hard-earned money.
Remember, together we’re better.
So if you are interested to organize a meetup of investors in your city, or just join one, simply click here to fill a small form.
We look forward to meeting you soon…and starting this new journey of learning, inspiring, and sharing to become better at how we invest.
