After closing up the shop for the holidays, Erik from esInvests drops by for a laid-back conversation centered on challenging our biases. Listen in as we fact check some of the beliefs we’ve held onto over the years, while also discussing how our egos make it difficult to admit to ourselves when we’re wrong
2 Bulls in a China Shop: Recorded on 12/21/22
Listen now on all major Podcast distributors!
Erik is a lifelong investor and self-made millionaire looking to share how others can achieve the same. He is hoping to share his experience with active and veteran military members to expose them to opportunities.
He came from a single parent low-income household, worked odd jobs as a kid, and began investing in high school. Erik wasn’t going to attend college and planned to enlist in the Marines, but a mentor directed him to apply for a scholarship (which he earned). While he pursued his undergrad, he dug deeper into investing and trading – finding derivatives which he primarily trades. He completed over 6 years of active duty before transitioning to the reserves, earning an MBA during his last year. Erik then spread into real estate and angel investing as his means grew, to accelerate capital growth.
