An IPO every quarter.

Having spent the last week on holiday with Buttercup's folks and interviewing her father extensively on the history of their financial success, I started toying with the idea of employee stock options / grants / purchase plans.

Not until today, though, back home and mowing the disproportionately overgrown backyard for only ten days leave did I put together the notion of creating LP's (or similarly structured vehicles) with company insiders for the express purpose of getting share grants below market value.

Without question, this idea is already in play, but let's call it independent discovery ... like the canoe.

Now, to make friends with people in companies with nice share purchase agreements, that's a challenge worth mounting.
