My business, investments and content afford me a lifestyle conducive to personal passions. I’m an avid Golfer, practitioner of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Guitarist, Reader, Writer and an Amateur Philosopher. The odd time I’m not found doing one of these, I’m with my friends or with my wonderful girlfriend of 4 years, Alana. I find immense meaning in consuming the world’s best ideas of past and present and compressing them into practical principles to make life better.
I was a terrible student in school, but I was an outlier in sports. With scholarship opportunities knocking at 15, my Dad gave me required reading before making any commitments.
The book was “Rich Dad Poor Dad”. It was the first book I enjoyed reading. It taught me something that the school had failed to: You don’t have to spend your adult life being stuck doing something you hate. I spent the next 3 years obsessively researching the ins and outs of entrepreneurship and investing. I wouldn’t shut up about it either, which allowed me to quickly garner a reputation as “the investing kid”. Four years later I had an investment track record in stocks and real estate, extensive media coverage and I began laying the foundations for my own investment advisory business, Haven. My goal here is to share everything I’ve learned in the process of being a young investor, entrepreneur and financial services founder. Why? Two reasons. First, this. Secondly, life seems better with a personal monopoly.
