Riding the Investing Rollercoaster with Jared Phillips | Value Stack 21

Jared is the host of the Crypto Parabellum Podcast and +Expected Value Telegram group.

Initially in commercial insurance and a real estate investor, he’s been trading on the side for many years, and has excelled enough to recently leave his job and do it full time. His macro takes are on-point and he’s one of the few people I give weight to when he makes market calls.

The markets have been tough this year, no matter the asset class, and given his consistent trading success without a crystal ball, he must have knowledge that we can learn from to enhance our investing skills, so I am excited to have him on the show for Episode 21 of Value Stack!
