Podcast have been absolutely essential in my growth as an investor. When you reflect back on Robert Kiyosaki’s Cashflow quadrant, he states that the core value of the investor needs to be knowledge. Since you are deploying your hard earned capital, you need to have an adequate understanding of the potential benefits and risks of whatever investment you choose to participate in it.
Podcasts have proven to be superior in terms of the efficient delivery and ultimately consumption of useful investment information-particularly when compared to books and even video in my experience. I often digest an episode during my morning rituals and work commute transforming this otherwise mundane period into prime learning time.
Invest Like a Boss is relatively new on the podcast scene but has quickly shot to the top of my list whenever they release a new episode. Sam Marks and Johnny FD are serial entrepreneurs who have each made a lot of money in tech startups and E-commerce respectively and they started Invest Like a Boss to chronicle their experiences investing in a wide range asset classes. Not only do they talk about traditional vehicles like mutual funds, but much to my delight they also participate in a number of same alternatives that I do, including peer to peer lending and real estate crowdfunding. Not only do they have on authoritative guests but they are refreshingly candid about what their results have been – both good and bad.
I had the pleasure to be a guest on their show and during this nearly hour long interview we really get into some good details of my investing story including:
- Who inspired me to start exploring alternative assets
- My initial forays into private mortgage lending
- The evolution to online lending
- My overall investment philosopy and ultimate goals
