422: Avoiding Ponzi Schemes and Bad Actors

The notion of moving wealth away from Wall Street into the hands of small private operators sounds great. However, it’s important to acknowledge some of the challenges of navigating these waters; challenges that many have witnessed first-hand in the podcast ecosystem over the past two years. First and foremost, let’s talk about vetting. Investing is […] The post 422: Avoiding Ponzi Schemes and Bad Actors appeared first on Wealth Formula.

421: Turn Your Empty Space into a Self-Storage Business

As soon as I finished training, I opened up a cosmetic surgery business. When I say business, I mean a business not practice. From day one, it was my intention to create a brand that I could hand off or sell someday rather than to create a job for myself. I was also focused on […] The post 421: Turn Your Empty Space into a Self-Storage Business appeared first on Wealth Formula.

420: Realtors Make Legal Settlement: Changes Made to What YOU Pay!

The cost of real estate transactions affects everyone regardless of whether you invest in real estate or not. Why? Because the cost of the transaction will ultimately be included in the price of the real estate. One of the biggest costs in a real estate transaction is the commission paid by the seller. In the […] The post 420: Realtors Make Legal Settlement: Changes Made to What YOU Pay! appeared first on Wealth Formula.

419: The Ins and Outs of ATM Investing

Last week I sent an update on the WF Velocity ATM Fund which currently has a live tranche. The email I sent, for reference, is below.

418: Using Math to Your Advantage

In the long run, math is pretty much always right. That’s why insurance companies are so profitable. They make predictions using the law of big numbers. Math can predict pretty much anything.

417: Market Update from a Former Sovereign Wealth Fund Manager

I feel like I am going through another major transition in my life. I turned 50 last September—a fact that I deliberately chose not to publicize.  I hate to admit it, but much of my behavior is stereotypical divorced midlife crisis stuff.

416: Artificial Intelligence: The Mother of All Technologies

In the latest surge of technological evolution, one titan stands out, reshaping our landscape with the silent swiftness of a revolution: Artificial Intelligence, or AI.

415: Tax and Return: Judge Glock

“I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” Ronald Reagan described those as the most dangerous words in the English language.

413: Social Security Scams and “Retirement” Planning

Retirement means “ceasing to work”. In my case, retirement will describe me when I’ve died. I understand retiring from a particular activity.

The challenge with investing is that you can do everything right and still lose.

When I first started podcasting a decade ago, I was very anti-Wall Street. But what does that even mean? I guess I hadn’t really contemplated that.
