Larry Chiang, President and CEO Duck9.com

YouTube VIDEO

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"

Student Athletes, See ENGR 145 as an Art Class

by Larry Chiang on April 26, 2015

By Larry Chiang
Technology. Entrepreneurship. 
Two words that both intimidate!!! It’s like taking an intro-to -art class where the end product could be “Pieter Bruegel’s, ‘Tower of Babel'” (credit Paul Graham’s book cover “Hackers and Painters”
image.jpeg
Disclosure: Lisa Falzone took Stanford Engineering “MS&E” class resulting in a masterpiece but that’s a “purposeful accidental entrepreneur #purposefulAE” http://bit.ly/LFalzone710
Well “technology entrepreneurship” is engineering 145 is #ENGR145. Student athletes should view it like a 4 unit art class where the worse grade you can get is an “A-”

Gotham Chopra made a great basketball movie. Kobe Bryant. “Muse”. Mr Kobe made specific mention of a half dozen mentors.

Marcus Allen. Malcolm Allen. Brannan Scarlett. Cameron Scarlett. Have fun at the art class #Engr145
My art effort is is horrendous. I can’t paint. I do take pictures so that is kinda like art? Re #SelfieNoSelf

The good news is that even if you don’t set the world on fire with your engineering 145 project, the lowest grade you can get is an “A-“. One year I handed out an A- and the little douchebag wrote a complaint not just on the eval, but also on Quora. See Paris Hilton is the Larry Chiang of Hollywood.

Networking Via Reading, And Then Mind Melding

April 26, 2015
