Happy Labour Day. I got married seven years ago today to a woman I met at the old (now shut down) Hard Assets Conference in San Francisco. Our first date was at Mark Skousen’s libertarian-centric Freedom Fest in Las Vegas. Best return I’ve ever gotten from being a commodity investor....

Inflation is hitting 50-year highs. Even the money management playbooks from the 1970s provide little guidance on how to navigate today’s environment. The smartest thing investors can do is sit down with as many veteran money managers and expert economists as possible, listen to their...

Last weekend I was on a hike with my five-year-old when we came across a river. There was a make-shift bridge made from a fallen tree. My son was capable of walking across the log, but with a river beneath, I was uncomfortable with the risk. I held his hand, and we crossed it...

Even on the Joe Rogan podcast, debates are occurring about whether or not the economy is in recession. In a recent episode, he and his guest were arguing between the “evidence” of a...

This week on the podcast, I had an unusual guest; he is a performance coach to many high-flying money managers and executives - and a few A-list athletes, including MLB All-Star, turned businessman Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez.

We are heading for a recession - guaranteed. FOX and CNN have both confirmed it :)
I am not sure what I am missing.
I live in a town of around 20,000 people. It’s a perfect size - large enough that you don’t know most people, but small enough that...

Last week in Bangkok, Thailand, a gun-wielding robber stole $70,000 in gold from a jewelry store. When captured by police, he confessed that he had stolen the gold to cover his losses in the crypto market.
I’m just going to let that marinate for a minute.

If you google a gentleman named Ronald Read, you will find a Wikipedia page that describes an American philanthropist, investor, janitor, and gas station attendant.
It’s a fantastic resume.
Read made headlines when he passed away...

Another Round in the Books
I recently completed another trip around the sun. I still haven’t figured out the meaning of life.
I begin each day shouting into the abyss in the form of a daily journal. I write down the front and centre items in my mind, and it focuses my energy for...

But it’s Delicious…
The other day, I listened to two friends argue about whether coffee was good or bad for you.
One argued the case for increased mental alertness, the powerful antioxidant effects, and decreased risks of heart disease and dementia.
The other was...

The only asset that matters in the 2020s
Our Vancouver Resource Conference is one week away. I am doing an abundance of media as we lead up to the show, (promoting, of course) and answering a lot of questions about why investors should come to an investment conference. Every interview I get...

Check out to Check-In
I am writing this on a flight home from Spain. I spent the last week in Barcelona with a group of entrepreneurs as part of an annual strategy session.
Once per year, for the last eight years, this group has met somewhere exotic for a focused four-day deep dive into...
