As announced earlier this year we partnered with Elliott Enterprises Network to create a real estate investment company called JB Elliott Homes. Along with some other investments, we are in the initial stages of a rehab project for a 3-story triplex in the West Mt Airy section of Philadelphia, PA. The property includes three 2-bedroom apartments.

West Mt Airy is truly a wonderful neighborhood (as there are many other wonderful neighborhoods in Philly) to live and many proud homeowners are settling there with their families. There is a thriving business section located above and below the 7000 block of Germantown Avenue! Investors, neighborhood residents, and business owners are proud of the changes over the last 5-10 years! Property values appear to be consistent and strong in the area, and residents seem to appreciate their investments!

The rehabilation of the triplex is expected to be complete in August! Please contact us with any and all tenant/general inquiries about the property and business. Also, if you are interested in any of the following please contact us: rehabbing properties, buying/selling a home, investing in real estate for the first time, becoming a tenant, etc. We have resources for all your real estate inquiries!

Is it Magic!!! LA Dodgers being sold to Magic Johnsons Group!

WOW! Now I had to release that cheer of joy for Magic Johnson and Co! Some time last year, Magic began liquidating most of his assets to put himself in position to bid with Mark Walter of Guggenheim Partners and others. Congrats to Magic and his group because this is such an amazing milestone for the local LA community. Magic Johnson has truly become an amazing businessman, and we will continue to learn from his calculated and innovative investments!

The group, which will be called Guggenheim Baseball Management has agreed to purchase the LA Dodgers for a record $2 billion, which is almost twice the amount Stephen Ross paid for the Miami Dolphins in 2008!

This move is great for LA and the US economy because not only do the Dodgers receive new motivated owners, but they get a fan favorite for LA Sports which helps revitalize LA for tourism, future and current residents, investors in local businesses, and much more! I'm sure with Magics smile and the other investors experience they will build the Dodgers into one of the premier sports franchises! So we all at JB Sutton wish Magic and Co all the success!

Capitalism v. Morals and Ethics

Capitalism is summed up as private ownership to produce goods or services, which results in the  accumulation of capital, competitive markets, voluntary exchange, and wage labor. America is a breeding ground for capitalists and capitalism, but many have neglected their personal morals and ethics along their journeys to succeed. Examples include the Enron fiasco, the recent real estate issues, and so many incidents in our history which influence typical Americans to feel Capitalists are villainous in nature.

What we feel would introduce consistent productive Americans is the direct result of Capitalism! Imagine families teaching their children to respect finances, credit cards being used responsibly, real estate being used as an investment tool along with the thought of achieving the "American Dream", and many more postliminary positive effects. As a result families would be able to inherently pass along both financial knowledge and tools, banks would be excited to see more consistent potential home owners, families would be better equipped to handle these periodic economic downturns, and the ultimate goal of decreasing the separation between the economical classes would sound more reasonable! Here at JB Sutton we typically use the term Entrepreneurship in referencing our investments to lessen the antagonistic feel of the word Capitalism!

So we feel it's our duty to internalize morals and ethics in every aspect of our company and within the team in our organization! Our hope is as we continue to grow, people will always think of us as one of the premier investing groups that consider the moral and ethical effects of all parties involved as deals finalize and relationships are built.

The American Marketing Association defines a brand as a "Name, term, design, symbol, or any other feature that identifies one seller's good or service as distinct from those of other sellers."

Here at JB Sutton, we feel Branding is one of the single most important aspects of a successful business! Becoming so engulfed in your business, that one develops the business name or logo into an extension of what the people involved are all about. We are currently in the final stages of designing our Yboomers site which will display brands, news, businesses and technology aspects of the Y Generation. We plan to build the site as a community based blog, in order to become more knowledgeable on what the web world wants! We really are focusing on the Y Generation because the founding writers were all born in the Y Generation and we feel this generation has so much more to offer, but there is so much many have forgotten. We plan to compare current innovation to past trendsetting tech devices like the iPad. For example, the impact of the Palm Pilot so many cherished for years! 

In addition the Yboomers community will display tech and business news on startups, current web giants such as Facebook and Twitter, and innovative new trends in society today. We really love the current state of the internet and technology, but we want our readers to know we plan to make our impact as well! We will initiate brands and software through time, and we plan to launch them all from the Yboomers community! 

So stay tuned for the next online Innovation Database! Its called YBOOMERS

The Private Equity Flow

The diagram above demonstrates the traditional investing structure of many private equity firms. Working capital is distributed to sub-funds created by the firm and the investing managers/funds managers strategically invest in companies within their related industries. There is a wide range of investment strategies, but the main objective is to obtain equity ownership in the industry related companies.
