One of the biggest challenges of the digital age is getting everyone in the company together at one time. Not only is it hard enough to schedule everyone for a meeting, but it does not help that everyone is spread out so far, sometimes across the globe. As such meeting software is taking off with a number of different companies investing in own software, with different ideas. One such software program is Tsunami XR, which creates an entire environment for workplace meetings. A project from Alex Hern, it allows for the organization of projects, enabling those involved in the project to see what is happening at a glance as well as share information.
Tsunami XR allows for those involved in projects to stay organized and in communication. The base of the system is standard meeting software, which allows a team to discuss problems and formulate solutions as well as organize the project. The software package also includes workspaces and time data boards, allowing a team to track how the individual parts of the project and see how it all fits together. They can also share files easily and in real time, meaning that they can easily discuss information during meetings as well as post current information as needed.
The Tsunami XR is the brainchild of Alex Hern. While most entrepreneurs have multiple iron in the fire, Alex Hern prefers to see each project through, believing that multi-tasking on separate projects dilutes those projects, and allows them to be lost in the shuffle. Focusing on individual projects allows the project manager to make sure that everyone that needs to be done to bring that project to fruition will happen. Given the importance of such software as Tsunami XR in bringing teams together that focus should help it to be successful.

Dr. Mark Mckenna is a medical investor, former real estate investor and doctor. His current investment project is OVME, an online app for ordering Botox injections to your door. By using home delivery OVME hopes to streamline the doctor and patients time by avoiding needles appointments for both.
Not always a medical investor, Dr. Mark Mckenna began his investing portfolio with real estatewhile still in medical school. He attended Tulane University and while there learned that some of his ideas on how the medical profession worked were wrong. It was going to be a lot harder for him to find work than he thought, and the pay was much less than he believed.
So Dr. Mark Mckenna began working extra hours as a check-up doctor for inmates at the local prison. Taking his pay from this, he began building his real estate portfolio. After graduating from Tulane with his medical degree, Dr. Mark Mckenna went to work at the practice owned by his father, also a doctor. But his experiences in real estate had been challenging and rewarding and Mckenna wanted to go into real estate full time. He quit his fathers practice and did so, becoming successful with a portfolio value of over $5 million.
But even in real estate there can be unpredictable things, such as the 2005 landfall of Hurricane Katrina. New Orleans, where Dr. Mckenna had his properties, was devastated. Mckenna’s portfolio was devastated as well, but rather than try and start over somewhere else he stayed in NOLA and helped rebuild by repairing damaged properties and re-selling them.
He was doing well with this venture when he noticed a trend that made him want out of real estate: He saw far too many questionable loans being approved that he knew would fail. Seeing the huge housing market collapse coming, he divested from real estate and entered medical investing.
Before OVME he invested in ShapeMed, a clinic he helped turn into a network and then sold to Life Time Fitness, Inc. for a nice profit. This helped his get the capital to invest in OVME.
For portfolio managers, learning new ways of overcoming challenges such as unreasonable risks and navigating market complexities can be the difference between increasing return on investment and watching your investment go down the drain. Therefore, conferences organized and headlined by successful entrepreneurs and financial experts always come in handy. This is because they offer a unique opportunity not only to network but also to learn of new tricks to avoid pitfalls that are inherent in the financial markets and investment industry. One such conference was organized on May 3, 2018, at the New York Athletic Club. Organized by Kase Learning founded by successful investor Whitney Tilson, the conference focused on short selling and was headlined by some of the leading financial minds in the industry including Kerrisdale Capital’s founder and chief investment officer, Sahm Adrangi.
After Mr. Tilson’s opening address, Sahm Adrangi delivered the first keynote speech of the morning session to the full-day conference attendees. He focused on ad fraud in short selling. The focus of his quality speech was particularly dear to Sahm Adrangi; an investment banker well-known for his detailed researches and exposes on short selling ad frauds committed by Chinese companies. While addressing the sizeable crowd gathered at the iconic club, Adrangi used his experience and knowledge to enlighten the attendees on how ad fraud affects the market. He also noted that the key to avoiding falling victim fraudulent shorting ads is to carry out due diligence before making an investment decision.
According to Sahm Adrangi, investors and portfolio managers can detect ad frauds by monitoring the trends of a company’s stocks. This is because they usually come before a company’s stock value declines. It is by watching such trends in the company’s shares that Adrangi successful built Kerrisdale Capital into an investment empire with assets valued at $150 million up from $1 million when it was founded. Other keynote speakers at the well-timed event included Greenlight Capital founder David Einhorn, Glaucus Research Group’s Soren Aandahl and Project M Group’s Enrique Abeyta Ubillos among others. The single-day event covered numerous topics around short selling as an investment avenue.
Robert Deignan is a businessman and entrepreneur and the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer(CEO) of ATS Digital System (ATS). The company focuses on digital support for worldwide consumers. The solutions offered cover a variety of concerns and are remotely administered.
Mr. Deignan is a native of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and his educational background includes a full ride football scholarship at Purdue University where he earned a degree in Organizational Leadership. He played professional football briefly in Miami with the Dolphins and in New York with the Jets. After his football career ended in 1998, Deignan ventured along the entrepreneurial path and co-founded Fanlink, Inc.
The idea for ATS came from his work at a company that developed and sold Anti-Malware Software. The software was available on a trial basis and it could be purchased after 15 days if the customer was happy with it. After having problems with the purchased installation, the company began to utilize a phone number customers could call to report problems and seek solutions. They found the solution and that was for an in-house technician to remotely connect to the customer’s computer and remove the roadblocks that was hindering the installation. Recognizing it was a very successful method to fix a customer’s computer and keep it running efficiently.
Deignan and his partners saw the remote repair option as a great opportunity to help consumers with technological difficulties. The idea for ATS was born. Mr. Deignan likes to start his day early and usually with a workout at the gym. After some gym time, he makes coffee and spends some time with his young son before beginning his work day. He arrives at his office by 8:30 and begins his assessment of the day including yesterday’s activities. He answers emails and completes any leftover tasks from the day before. He brainstorms new ideas with his business partners and interfaces with his team before heading home for the day.
He is most excited about the remote technology fix. As more consumers realize it is not necessary to bring a computer to its point of sale for repair when it is running slow, nor hire a technician to come to the house to do the job, the remote technology fix is expanding.
