How to sell a Bible millennials will read, and a savvy investor buying tech companies with speed.
Today’s reading time: ~6 minutes
Next week I’m piling my belongings into my Honda CRV and moving three hours up the road, from Austin to Dallas, to be with my girlfriend. After 12 years of friendship and two years of long distance dating, we’ll finally be living in the same city.
I’ve lived in four cities and moved nine times since 2012, which makes me a rarity: Only about 10% of Americans moved in 2018, a population share that continues to fall. With stagnant salaries and a shortage of affordable housing in many cities, it’s no wonder people are staying put.

Don’t press snooze on this opportunity: sleep supplements
The signal: As meditation becomes mainstream, people may be surprised to find that searches for sleep apps double their meditation counterpart. As people invest in getting a better night’s rest, there’s opportunity abound, including physical products like weighted blankets or premium PJs, supplements, popular insomnia drugs having their patents expire, companies paying their employees to sleep better, marketing for sleep specialists, or online sleep education (ex: sleep apnea test has 27k searches per month).
The alternative milk market is getting frothy
The signal: As more people wave goodbye to dairy, alternative milk is slowly taking over; it has already cornered 13% of the market. With the exception of soy milk, all of the alt-milks have been on the up, with some of the newer entrants including hemp milk and pea milk. Other alt-products are getting attention, including cashew cheese, with 18100 searches per month.
Capitalizing on the Airpods market, making more money than Shopify
The signal: Since killing the headphone jack, Apple has graced the world with AirPods, which did an estimated 60m units in 2019. That means AirPods alone are bringing in approx ~$10b in revenue, more than Twitter, Shopify, or Spotify, to name a few popular tech giants. Opportunity lies in Apple opening up SiriOS or the wave of iPhone accessories (including cases, cleaning kits, hooks, and keychains) which have shown “hockey stick” growth alongside their hardware predecessor.
