Spotlight: Michael V. Blumeyer
You have to go back years to find a driven business consultant and finance analyst as Michael V. Blumeyer.
Despite the diatribes he faced from the career services at his undergraduate university, he goaded himself on in 2013 with the completion of the first (and only) finance paper (47 pages) on how Tesla Motors (TSLA) would become a great success in the next decade.
“It took me three weeks to complete the 47-page finance paper in which included the industry analysis of the automobile industry with Ford #1 at the time, a complete financial statement analysis, the value chain of the firm, business strategy, as well as my 5+ Year Projections. With my projections, they were different from my other project, Chipotle (CMG), in which I felt the pressure of needing to “believe” in exponential returns that Tesla would surpass. Unlike most companies, the value of Elon Musk leading the company was truly one of the success factors that would overcome the dangers when analyzing the risk factors and limitations in regards to resources.”
After completing the finance paper, Blumeyer decided to single-handedly give Tesla Headquarters a well-printed copy of the paper.
“I drove up 8 and a half hours and walked in the door for Tesla. It felt weird parking my Nissan 350Z next to so many new Tesla Model S vehicles. When I arrived, in the parking lot of headquarters, it was 4:30pm so I didn’t have much time to feel my nerves. I had to act boldly or accept the fact that I drove up just to attend the Eventbrite seminar on ‘Incremental Innovation vs. Disruptive Innovation” that I signed up and I wasn’t going to accept anything less than the very best for myself. I didn’t drive up there to take “no” for an answer.”
The nice front desk at Tesla accepted Blumeyer’s finance paper and said they would happily hand it to the finance department for review. The next day, Blumeyer received a call from Tesla and had to pull over on his way back to San Diego.
The conversation Blumeyer had opened up a completely new paradigm. It was OKAY to go against the “experts” and the “career experts” to claim to have your very best interest in mind, but continue to indicate that you should settle for a mediocre job in life, that your hard work should be limited, that your desire to master your craft should be toned down to the level of “appriopriateness”.
Blumeyer used the lessons he learned at his Tesla adventure and the finance paper helped the MBA students and business owners he tutored and consulted with to believe in their own ultimate potential and ascend to their true destinies.
The rest is history.
