Why Become a Contrarian?
You’ve officially crossed over into the less crowded world of critical thinkers.
What if I was to tell you the single biggest determinant of your success, is your skill at questioning?
It's not IQ, not education, not wealth, it's as Descartes said, "I think, therefore I am."
If I have learned one thing as a former journalist, turned pundit, turned public markets investor, turned "Gasp" cannabis private equity investor, it is that your life and your bank account are largely tied to your questions. Questions reveal if you my friend are a critical thinker... or an instant believer. Unfortunately in this world of ours replete with fake news, narrative, spin, information inundation and social stigma programing, the worst thing you can be is an instant believer.
So I decided to start my newsletter to help you "Think Like A Contrarian." Now there are thousands of you Contrarians on here.
We challenge the status quo to achieve what most believe is impossible.
Some of my favorite former articles below:
ALL the best opportunity is found in the disconnect between our common narrative and the truth. That's how I found PE, built a successful firm in LatAm, made my wealth, became a pundit on TV and media (for whatever that is worth) and discovered even a public school kid like me could do it. All of that is what we will discuss, a weekly breakout of 3-5 items to give you tools to break yourself out of normal.
Our topics span: passive income, marketing and fundraising, generational wealth, contrarian investing, alternative asset classes, capitalism, macro-economics, dislocated markets, startups, and learning from strivers who think BIG.
If you are tired of the news and educational systems setting your thinking than, follow along.
Who Belongs Here:
I jokingly say malcontents, contrarians, and generally cantankerous hominoids. But actually I’m serious. We’re here tot serve the side hustlers, the execs, the “questioners”and the philosophers.
You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.
Join the Contrarians
When I first launched this newsletter was growing (30k+ and counting) but it was missing something… missing conversation... each of you. So my hope with this newsletter, and sending it to you, is that you'll subscribe. Because I want more emails, NO. Because I'd rather have 10 brilliant people read this weekly and give me their ideas, then 1MM of the thoughtless commentators I see in social media.
So follow along - let’s start disagreeing already eh?
