Every day, it blows my mind that more people aren’t investing in private equity.

I just don’t get it. Information about the stock market is everywhere you go; most people I know funnel their extra cash into the public markets without a second thought. And yet private equity deals are the ones that have the potential to multiply your dollar 1,000 times over.

So why isn’t everyone doing it? There are plenty of theories out there… but if you ask me, the main thing keeping people away is fear of taking risks.

See, angel investing has a reputation for being riskier than other asset classes. And if you take it at face value, it does seem that way – after all, somewhere around 50% of startups fail. But that “bad press” makes the faulty assumption that you, as an angel investor, would pick your portfolio companies at random.

What I mean is that the majority of startups that eventually close up shop – the bottom 50% — never had what it takes to begin with. And those are simply not the kinds of companies that I invest in.

I can smell a future failure from a mile away – and my 1,000X Formula makes it that much easier. It’s basically a set of rules that I apply to any investment opportunity that winds up on my desk. If it passes, then I know it has the potential to return 1,000X my money. If it fails, it goes straight into the trash.

The 1,000X mindset – and the formula to go with it – can help you make better decisions too. Just click here to learn what it is and how to use it.

The thing is, I don’t expect every winning pick to give me a 1,000X return. Nobody on earth has a track record that good. But I need to know from the very start that it’s at least a possibility. Otherwise, we’re thinking too small – and that’s just a waste of time.

There are three other main strategies you can use to reduce your losses – and win more. Just check out the video above to learn what they are.

Until next time,

  1. When you say cut your losses, this is figurative, isn’t it? I mean, if the investment doesn’t pan out, there really isn’t a way to back out like when you sell stock at a loss. You cannot really liquidate the money you’ve put into a start up, right? It’s more of a “move on” philosophy, isn’t it?

  2. What is the cost to ROI ratio? I don’t mind risk as long as the upside has greater potential then the standard Options that I’m currently playing.

  3. Thanks Neal Patel, for opening the door for smaller investor like me.
    I have invested in We livv, Cityzenith and Nanno. I follow your recommendations religiously hoping to become the best investor with a goal to earn 15,000,000 in the first 5 year beginning October 16, 2019 to October 16, 2024.

  4. Neil,
    I am just starting out, so I am not sure how to double down. From what I have learned so far I have to wait till the ones that are doing well have to go back for more investments . At that time I can double down. Am I on the right track?
    Thanks,
    Paul

  5. Very interested! I understand your concept and fully agree. Looking forward to learning more of the strategies used in your program.

  6. How does this help single moms with limited resources. We want to invest into things also but our risk is riskier because we habe no one to support us but we want to sacrifice our money also. How long does it usually take to see profit frim investments

  7. Very good comments here.
    Note: Being a “little” older than most it may take me a while to “get it’, but I’ll keep on truckin’. We have had some set backs in the last couple weeks, 2 deaths in the family, a car wreck and now no transportation, plus numerous conflicts, I have not had the time I wanted to concentrate on this. I WILL continue to learn, it just may take me a little longer than planned. Thank you for all your good information.

  8. Hi
    As per my understanding if a start up is doing great then we can double down on it down the road if we can may be in its next round of fund raising. Increasing your investment growing so that you get the profit.

  9. I only have $50.00 to invest! You advertised that would be all I need and the lowest I have seen is $100.00! I am a retired teacher and I was trusting your $50.00 pitch! Please help!

    • Hi Connie,

      While many of our opportunities have started at $50, we made the decision early on to feature the BEST deals each month, rather than scrounging for deals with a lower minimum. It’s more important to us to deliver quality to our subscribers. I can assure you that there will be more $50 opportunities down the line; in the meantime, you could consider saving your $50 from one month so that you can participate in a $100 raise next month.

      Hope this helps!
      Neil
