This was one of the most comprehensive and incredible interviews I've done. I don't think I've ever had so much fun doing an episode. Yes, I know, I know, this episode is LONG AF!!! 2 hours. It's insane. However, Scott is one amazing individual and it was a total honor to interview him.
Scott has led Transformational programs for over 100,000 people all over the world. The dude has coached top executives from all fields, award-winning architects and designers, Oscar and Tony-winning actors, Grammy Award-winning musicians and composers, athletes from the NBA, NFL and Formula 1, renowned chefs and tech startup geniuses. His practice brings together in-depth thinking from Silicon Valley with the wisdom and practices of advanced consciousness development. He gets FLOW and TEAM in a way that most others talk about in a way that makes want to roll my eyes, puke a little bit, and then call BULLSHIT on! Scott is the real deal.We talk a little bit about Tribal Leadership which was discussed on previous episodes when I brought New York Times Bestselling author John King who invented the Tribal Leadership Technology onto the show, TWICE:
In this episode, Eric Schleien & Anthony Waldichuk discuss National Stockyards (NSYC).
According to Oddball Stocks:
Here's the backstory. A long time ago in a faraway place, there was a company that owned stockyards. A stockyard is a place where cattle are auctioned off to buyers. Ranchers drive their cattle by horse, or train, or truck to the stockyard at pre-determined dates when auctions are held. Cattle buyers come and purchase the ingredients for your burgers and steaks and the ranchers return home without cattle, but with pockets full of cash.The company was established in the 1870s in Oklahoma. The date and place invoke images of cowboys and Indians, saloons and western movies. Those days are long gone and the company now consists of three things, their Oklahoma stockyard that's still transacting cattle, a plot of empty land near St. Louis, and an ownership interest in a golf course.
In this episode, Eric Schleien & Anthony Waldichuk discuss Scope Industries (SCPJ). Company is super under the radar. The CEO has been at the helm for 6 decades and has built a pretty good long-term track record as a value investor. Was amazed that I had never heard of him before this episode. Totally interesting stuff! Anthorny refers to the CEO as the Poor Man's Warren Buffett.
In this episode, Eric Schleien & Anthony Waldichuk discuss Southern Reality (SRLY) which is an oil & gas royalty business with a stock and bond portfolio attached. They recently announced a special dividend in excess of their current market cap.
Avoca, LLC (AVOA) is a publicly traded, non-reporting limited partnership that owns a 16,000-acre island off the coast of New Orleans. They have a few side businesses, some potential use for the land, and have a stock and bond portfolio worth the market cap. These dark companies are fun!
