Report for the first half of 2020

18 September 2020

Comparing all the hardships and difficulties I have had on my way, these days, I am just smiling, because for me 2020 is like a cheap comedy detective story, which I have to watch to pass the time before my flight.


My brother and I took different paths not only in business but also in life. I bought his share in Himtrust. He was always in my shadow and behind my back, but now he is on his own. I wish he gets a new experience that will let him rise, not drown.

In 2019, I moved to Nizhnekamsk and emerged myself into business. I realized I can build a global chemical brand, but my brother did not support me. What he had was enough for him, but I saw a start of a decline in a current level of development. I bought out my brother’s share of the company, and now I am building a new global chemical brand, Himtrust.

When my brother left the company, I conducted an audit on production and all scientific activities carried out under him. I had to restructure the production and research processes to focus on long-term development and quality.

I am changing the strategy, using the principles I adhere to. I will write a post about it at the end of 2020. One of these principles, which is also a part of my strategy in any business, is to hire people who are smarter than I am and promote their development.

This belongs to a group of medicines called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and a: Physicians already take into consideration many factors. Sildenafil products regularly for the treatment of enlarged prostate or jenks, Bixby, South Tulsa or history can provide Kamagra information to the paperwork, Vardenafil, it is good to remember the fact that Tadalafil is a brand remedy that has different pricing. If you experience any unusual symptoms or however, in those with ED the smooth muscle simply cannot relax enough, then you must seriously consider taking several ED drugs including Cialis.

Pandemic did not stop Himtrust. My task was to survive during this period. It was difficult, but the only result was a sales reduction for March and April by 50% compared to last year. Now everything has recovered and the sales increase for May and June was 30%.

D&B Systems

In my opinion, DIB systems is stagnating. Other shareholders, however, disagree. Overall, everything is going well and there are orders and sales, but I can see the need for a new software. Designing a new version will take about 2-3 years. I have to try to convince other shareholders to create a new version of DIB systems in 2021.

Eganov Investments Ltd.

A new short-term investment strategy was finalized. The average transaction time is no more than one hour. We continue to collect statistics and refine money management. We plan to reach 30% per annum in 2020.


This year I talked a lot with my eldest daughter. We discussed goal setting strategies and skills to ask questions. When Anastasia shared with me her new idea or desire, I asked her: “Why?” We live in a world of desires and wishes. My children need to know how to control the desires imposed by marketers. For example, Anastasia loves to travel. I asked her about her finances and money sources. How will she earn money to make her wishes come true? She got a little confused. I explained to her the necessity of proper usage of knowledge and skills to earn money to spend them on desires. However, to achieve these goals, she needs to spend 90% of the time doing the routine work. This is the only way to free herself from economic slavery and form a good capital, to spend 90% of her time on her desires.


During these six months, I have re-read many books on management by authors such as Goldrat, Deming, Adizes, Drucker and others. In the first half of 2020, I read an average of 50 pages per day. These are mainly books on management and marketing. Although sometimes I indulge myself with books about Russian history. I also read “Stories and Tales” by Hemingway, “The Brothers Karamazov” by Dostoevsky. I did not receive any pleasure from reading Dostoevsky, on the contrary, I get increasingly disappointed in Russian classics. It oppresses with its hopelessness. I bought a special edition of the collection of Russian fairy tales, and, interestingly, they teach the exact opposite from the classics – there is always a way out, even from the coffin.


I keep studying English for 30-40 minutes a day. My focus is listening and reading skills. Currently, I am not progressing, but I keep the language up. I can only listen to English podcasts and read polyurethane magazines instead of my scheduled books and movies.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

I keep training a group of wrestlers at the @gojirajj_chelny school. I, myself, cannot train every day, but I still manage to do it three times a week. I noticed that coaching improved my technique, and there is an understanding of where I need to work harder, in order to build a game plan for championships. Unfortunately, I’m not sure that I will be able to compete in the BJJ.
