Invest Like The Best Podcast Cover (3000x3000)

Welcome to Invest Like the Best. In each episode, I speak with the most interesting people I can find, whose stories will help you better invest your time and your money, and teach you how to play with boundaries in your own life.

Chosen as one of five podcasts to listen to by the Wall Street Journal

While many guests are professional investors (portfolio managers, venture capitalists, personal finance experts, researchers, authors), I will also speak with many people outside of the investing business whose insight and experience can entertain and inform.

My constant goal: find great people who are willing to share what they’ve learned with you.

I am lucky to have an incredibly smart and curious audience. I always love hearing from you, in this case with feedback on the show or particular episodes, or with suggested guests for future episodes. Send both to with the subject header “Podcast.” Please enjoy Invest Like the Best.
