One of the most lucrative businesses in the country, which most people never give a second thought to, is the home improvement sector. With more than $410 billion per year in total revenues across all aspects of the industry, the home improvement and repair industry ranks as one of the largest in the country, on the same scale as car sales, petroleum and medicine.

But the industry gets a surprisingly little amount of attention. This may be due, in part, to the fact that it isn’t as dynamic and interesting as some other huge-money industries. However, some very large fortunes have been made in this age-old business. One example of that is the incredible rise of David Zalik and his company, GreenSky Credit.

Spotting value where no one else can

Zalik’s great insight came when he was working as a financial consultant for a number of home improvement businesses. He spotted a leak in their business model that he instantly recognized to be so huge that it was difficult for Zalik to believe that no one else had ever tried to address it.

Many home improvement customers were coming into stores or calling contractors to get estimates on major home improvement projects, only to find out that their own ideas of what the projects would ultimately cost were so far short of the true estimates that they simply abandoned the projects outright.

Zalik saw as this phenomenon played out over and over, costing these home improvement retailers and contractors billions of dollars each year in lost deals. But Zalik noticed another recurring theme. The people trying to complete these projects were almost invariably top-end borrowers, meaning that they would be eligible for loans up to almost any limit. Zalik knew that if he could create a business, GreenSky Credit, that could offer instant point-of-sale loans to these customers, billions of dollars in additional jobs and sales would materialize.

This was the idea behind GreenSky. And Zalik quickly proved it to be a good one. Today, GreenSky Credit is doing billions of dollars in new loans each year and the company is worth an amount estimated at more than $5 billion.

Did you happen to miss the tweet storm by Shervin Pishevar? It was one for the ages that you do not want to have missed. He connected so many ideas and thoughts together about the economy and the political situation in the world right now. It was something to truly marvel at.

If you are not already a follower, you might not realize that Shervin Pishevar was an early investor in Airbnb. He put his money down in a company that had the potential to fail early on in its creation. However, his bet paid off and he ended up making a lot of money for himself on that particular deal. It also helped to solidify the idea that Pishevar knew a thing or two about making economic predictions. He clearly made good ones in his personal life that led to success, so why would we not trust him to also make some good ones on a more broad scale? That is what Shervin Pishevar attempts to do with his Twitter account these days.

The first tweet as part of his tweet storm was about the idea that Shervin Pishevar believes that the stock market is due for a correction in general. He thinks that the indicators are pointing to the idea that the market is overbought and in desperate need to come down in value a little bit. Not three days after he wrote this tweet, the market began to fall by over one-thousand points in a single day. Even Shervin Pishevar was surprised by how quickly this first prediction was coming true.

He went on to make other claims that he believes are true as well. For example, he says that Bitcoin is not the safe haven currency that some would so desperately like for it to be. He thinks that it could fall all the way down to between two-thousand and five-thousand dollars per Bitcoin before it starts to rebound once again.

These are the kind of concrete predictions that you could hear about if you were to follow Pishevar on Twitter. He does not hold back on those predictions, and he is frequently accurate when he makes them.
