We’re back to the stock-picking well in our ongoing “5 Stocks…” series. Today David dips not only into the Supernova Universe for inspiration, but into his own personal portfolio.

Are you a “Visionary” who sees the world from 10,000 feet, eyes on the future? Are you an “Operator” who loves to break down barriers and get stuff done? Maybe you’re a “Processor” who creates frameworks and craves efficiency. Or a “Synergist” able to set your ego aside and pull the team together. According to our guest, Les McKeown, each of these types are essential to building and scaling a successful business, but each is particularly suited to a different stage of a company’s lifecycle. Getting the right balance and working to move your business through its growth stages is key to building Predictable Success.

One episode was not enough to contain the wit and wisdom of our guest, Kevin Kelly. In this bonus episode, David asks Kevin about the future of tracking in a “protopian” society, and then we take questions from our Motley Fool One audience.
Have you ever wondered what the future looks like? You're in luck because today's guest pretty much lives there. As co-founder and now Senior Maverick of Wired Magazine, Kevin Kelly has a distinguished career of seeking out where the future is erupting and bringing the news back to the rest of us. David interviewed Kevin at our Motley Fool One Member Event in San Francisco last week. We know you will enjoy this peek behind the curtain!

Regardless, David has 5 picks to beat the market over the next 3+ years. Also, two years ago Rule Breaker stocks were hurting, down over 20% in our own private bear market. Today we’ll review the 5 stocks David picked at that time. We hope you were listening!
