Overall, Samuel Oshana has been very successful in many business areas over many years. He has had success in both Florida and New York, although these days, most of his success has come in Florida. Much of his success in the realm of investment comes from his ability to start up new companies and nurture them to great success, like the time he led the startup and eventual sale of Apex Data Systems, a merchant payment processor that was once related to with First Data Corporation. He was able to nurture that startup and sell the company for a significant return on investment.
Whereas he spent many years as an investment and business advisor, over the past several years, Samuel Oshana has also spent a lot of his spare time following the sports teams in his beloved hometown of Boston. Samuel Oshana is especially fond of his hometown Boston Celtics, a basketball team in the National Basketball Association. There is nothing difficult about being a Celtics fan. The Celtics have the most championships in NBA history, with 17 of them between 1957 and 2008. In fact, between the 1958-1959 season and the 1965-1966 seasons, the Celtics won 8 championships in a row, and 11 out of 13 during the 1950s and 1960s.
As good as Samuel Oshana is at making money for both himself and others, in some ways, he wishes he could be as successful as his beloved New England Patriots. But then, everyone probably wishes they were Tom Brady. The Patriots’ last losing season was in 2000, and they have now appeared in 11 Super Bowls, winning six them, which puts them in a tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl wins. They are also the only team to ever go 16-0 in a regular season. Head Coach Bill Bellichick and owner Robert Kraft always make sure the Patriots are always in the hunt for the NFL championship, which makes Samuel Oshana and most other Patriots fans very happy.
Like most Boston sports fans, Samuel Oshana can be said to be long-suffering, when it comes to another Boston team. The Boston Red Sox were a founding team in the American League of Major League Baseball and they won the first-ever World Series between the National and American Leagues in 1903. In the early days of the 20th Century, the red Sox were one of the most successful teams in professional baseball.
However, they stopped winning World Series Championships after 1918. The team sold baseball icon Babe Ruth (nicknamed the “Bambino”), one of the greatest players of all time, to their hated rival, the New York Yankees. That led to the beginnings of the superstition, “the Curse of the Bambino.” The Red Sox would not win a World Series after 1918, until 2004, when they became one of the most potent franchises in Major League Baseball. In the early part of the 21st Century, it is clear the curse has been lifted, since they won in 2004 and 2013, over the St. Louis Cardinals, in 2007, over the Colorado Rockies, and in 2018, ver the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Over the course of his career, he has been quite successful in a number of business areas. Whereas Samuel Oshana was born in Boston and made quite a name for himself in New York, he calls Miami home these days, where he has expanded his investment portfolio by making loans and using real estate as collateral. He gained such a foothold in the Florida real estate market that he obtained a Florida real estate brokerage license and he is now a major player in that state.
A good deal of Samuel Oshana’s business success has happened because he has been able to show repeatedly that he possesses an innate ability to start up new companies and know exactly how to bring them along successfully. One of the best examples is the time he played a key role in the startup of Apex Data Systems, a merchant payment processing company he helped found at the same time he was working with First Data Corporation. He worked hard with Apex and brought it along to the point that he was able sell the company for a significant return on his initial investment.
