成功與回報這件事,得全靠市場。

PChome這些年來雖然沒啥長進,但在台灣仍屬最強的電商品牌,年年營收獲利不斷攀高。然而,它市值多少?才不過12億美金。KKBOX已是全球極其少數能創造獲利的音樂串流業者,市值也還沒上10億美金。亞馬遜、阿里、谷歌這種動輒千億起跳的姑不論,莫名其妙就衝破20億美金的美國新創網路公司比比皆是,那是怎麼回事?

新約聖經馬太福音第13章裡,耶穌講了個比喻:「有一個撒種的出去撒種;撒的時候,有落在路旁的,飛鳥來吃盡了;有落在土淺石頭地上的,土既不深,發苗最快,日頭出來一曬,因為沒有根,就枯乾了;有落在荊棘裏的,荊棘長起來,把它擠住了;又有落在好土裏的,就結實,有100倍的,有60倍的,有30倍的」。

撒的種子落在什麼土裡,基本上決定將來的收成。所以,看懂台灣的籌資、創業、收成的環境,你可以決定要不要以它為主要市場撒種。

就以這位年僅46歲、專職幫銀行客戶對抗activist investor的併購律師為例,Morgan Stanley核給他的年薪至少在500萬美金以上,再加進經常為數不小於年薪的紅利。世界上什麼樣的律師有這種行情?不但得是最聰明、最敏捷、算計能力最強的律師,更還得是穿梭在華爾街的律師。

搞清楚自己幾斤幾兩,再選對主攻市場。嘴砲與民粹,不會幫你我賺大錢的。
