Larry Chiang, President and CEO


I'll shoot you w/a nerf gun if you don't manage your credit.

11:11 is my goal of getting duck9 consumers lots of 1s.

24 1's in a row equals a 750 FICO.

A "one" is an on-time payment in credit reporting code.

A '9'=charged off bad-debt. You wanna duck 9s.

Duck9 = Deep Underground Credit Knowledge (Duck 9's on your credit report. 9's are charge-offs)

"Making sure college credit virgins get deflowered right since 2004"

"Larry Chiang is an expert at the dark art of FICO score preparation"

from Paul Thompson, Founder Scottish American Capital

Harvard Business School '09

"Who needs Stanford Business School when you have Larry Chiang"

Acing University of Texas Entrepreneur Week, 2020

by Larry Chiang on November 10, 2019

By Larry Chiang
University of Texas Entrepreneurship Week, , will take place March 2, 2020 ~ March 17, 2020
Nothing is set in stone yet. These dates are based on extrapolations from 2019
How nearly everyone does #UTeWeek is that they kinda half-ass it. People will chase celebs and free food. Students will avoid real work. Participants will not do extra homework. At best, they will attend a meeting to help organize #UTeWeek which means meetings talking about setting up more #UTeWeek meetings. 
Problem: #UTeWeek is free and awesome. So people take it for granted. 
Solution. Pretend you paid $120,000 for #UTeWeek and need to get your ROI Before day 1 of #UTeWeek which could occur as early as February 25, 2020
Do what Bob Metcalfe mentors us to do. Learn sales. But try in private so that if you fail, it’s a private failure between me and you. 
Selling is at the heart of entrepreneurship. It’s massively unpopular to teach because sales is emotionally hard. Selling makes you feel like a loser. 
Five things to try to sell before #UTeWeek (preferably over thanksgiving or Christmas and ideally take under 7 hours. Think of it as a Pop Up Internship That’s Self Study)

To convince you that sales are important, the Starbucks founders sold Peets beans.

Student athletes usually excel at selling but the NCAA prohibits you from selling as per ncaa rules.
