Ben Fraser is the Managing Director at Aspen Funds, a private fund that operates real estate funds for investors. He has raised over $100M in the past several years. Before Aspen Funds, Ben worked as a commercial banker and underwriter in boutique assets management. He’s also a contributor to the Forbes Finance Council and a co-host of the Invest Like a Billionaire podcast. Ben’s experience in real estate and banking taught him that even though successfully navigating a recession and rising interest rates can be challenging, the best opportunities appear when the economic landscape is shifting.  In today’s conversation, he reveals why ultra-wealthy individuals and organizations allocate significant portions of their investment portfolios outside the stock market and in alternatives—like real estate, private equity and hedge funds—while the average investor mainly works with stocks and bonds. We also go over his strategies for successfully navigating recessions, why he likes multifamily and self-storage, and his thoughts on the future of the US economy.Free GiftNick’s giving away the first 5 chapters of his book, The 2-Hour Cocktail Party: How to Build Big Relationships with Small Gatherings.

Nick Gray is an investor, entrepreneur, and author who has started, scaled and sold multiple businesses.  One of his most successful ventures was Museum Hack, which was his unique approach to offering museum tours for people who hate museum tours. It got into the Inc 5000 as one of the fastest-growing companies in the country. Eventually he struck a 7-figure exit deal, and continues to own 15% of the company. While Nick could have enjoyed an early retirement, he decided to follow another passion: connecting with people and helping others build personal and professional relationships. After hosting hundreds of parties, he authored The 2-Hour Cocktail Party, which teaches anyone how to build relationships by hosting small gatherings. New York Magazine has described him as “the host of culturally significant parties.” In this conversation, we go over the lessons he learned from bootstrapping and exiting multiple businesses, why entrepreneurs struggle to find meaning after securing nine-figure exits, and why hosting events is the best way to build your professional network. Free GiftNick’s giving away the first 5 chapters of his book, The 2-Hour Cocktail Party: How to Build Big Relationships with Small Gatherings.

C.L. Turner is the Founder and Managing Partner of Crescendo Capital. He has invested in 50+ companies and closed 13 platform acquisitions with multiple eight and nine-figure exits.  Through Crescendo, C.L. primarily focuses on low-to-middle-market businesses valued from $20M to $150M, and takes them to the next level by providing capital, operational expertise, and a hands-on collaborative approach to enable their organic and acquisitive growth. What differentiates C.L.’s approach with Crescendo from that of countless other companies is that when they invest and acquire companies, they prioritize the cultural and personal fit of the acquisition with the founders and key employees in the company.  In our conversation, we dig into using leveraged buyouts for scaling and exiting, the importance of collaborating with founders and employees when acquiring companies, and C.L’s strategy for investing that he used to land 8 and 9-figure exits for his clients.Free GiftI’m sharing a detailed list of all the books I’ve read related to money, investing, lifestyle, and personal development.

If you want to live a rich life, one of the most important assets to invest in is yourself. You can have all the money in the world, but if you don't have your health, the money is pointless. While today’s episode doesn’t cover the usual investing strategies our guests normally speak on, it does offer valuable insight into how someone with a difficult past can face their fear, let go of the past, and completely turn their life around for the better.  I’m talking with Stefanos Sifandos. Stefanos is a behavioral scientist and relationship expert who has worked with Elite Special Forces soldiers, Olympic Gold Medalists, high-performing CEOs, entrepreneurs, world champion fighters, and everyday people, helping them to move past their trauma and step into freedom. Before Stefanos could help all those people, he needed to help himself first. He grew up in a low-income family with an abusive father, and the trauma he went through as a child wreaked havoc on his life as an adult. He became addicted to food, porn, sex, and abusive relationships. After years of struggle, he decided to stop the past from influencing his present. He explored his deep-seated pain and saw the man he could be if he didn’t allow those demons to define him.

Love the podcast. Topic Request = Trusts Trusts for asset protection, tax deferral, tax strategy. Non Grantor, Irrevocable, Complex, Discretionary, Spendthrift Trust is of high interest. This podcast provides much legitimacy aiding my wealth centric decisions. A discussion on trusts would be highly valued from me and other listeners, as well.
