Each one of us are like publicly traded companies with shareholders owning stocks in the company.

In my case, my primary shareholders are my daughter, my wife, and my mom. The rest of my family, my friends, and all of you who read my newsletters and blogs are also shareholders. This makes me the CEO of Arjun Sen Company and my job is to always act in the best interest of my shareholders, place that interest above my own, and increase long-term shareholder value to each of you. I also have a Board of Directors, who guide me and advise me in my journey forward. One of my Board of Director’s, David Flanery, a super CFO (former CFO of Papa John’s and Benihana) was instrumental in further enhancing this publicly traded company concept.

This realization has changed my perspective of life.  It drives how I conduct myself or my business. This reminds me always to act worthy of the CEO position. I cannot simply do random goofy things. I must be consistent; I must be accountable. As COVID-19 changed the world, this realization pushed me to act with a higher level of responsibility as I did not want to cause any stress or anxiety to my shareholders.

I want to thank each of you for your help, kindness, guidance, and advice; and above all for always being there for me.

The Stock Tip

As you get ready to welcome the new year, just look around you and you will see that you and everyone else are also publicly traded companies. Here are five questions for you can use as thought starters:

  1. What is the main purpose of your business?
  2. Who are your major shareholders?
  3. What do they expect from your company?
  4. Who are on your Board of Directors? Who else should be on your Board?
  5. How can you create more long-term value for your company, the community, and your shareholders?

With this perspective, look at your shareholders and decide how you can start the new year with appreciation and a commitment to move the stock value ahead.
