How to Avoid 98% of all Human Misery

In This Episode

This week, we’re doing something that’s never been done in the history of the Investor Hour podcast…

It’s a two-part interview with two incredibly special guests.

The first is a new face to Investor Hour listeners. Berna Barshay is a rising star at Empire Financial Research, who in less than a year has already begun to make a name for herself with her email newsletter read every day by thousands.

 During their conversation, Berna shares her unique perspective that has helped her spot massive winners the rest of Wall Street hated, like Lululemon, up over 20x since going public.

She’s even holding her own webinar for those who want to learn more about her unique strategy. You can find more info at www.empire2021.com.

The second guest is a remarkable man who started a hedge fund out of his Manhattan apartment which he grew to over $200 million…

He’s appeared numerous times on national television where he has broken some of the biggest financial scandals in America… 

And he’s even climbed Mount Kilimanjaro…

The one and only, Whitney Tilson…

Whitney joins Dan this week to talk about his latest book.

It’s not a book on finance… Or a novel about his relationship with Charlie Munger or Warren Buffett… Or another one of the hundreds of books on working hard to become successful in life.

It’s a book Whitney says is aimed toward his three daughters as they enter adulthood.

 Whitney’s book The Art of Playing Defense: How to Get Ahead by Not Falling Behind is one of the few books that explores what to do once you become successful, detailing how to avoid the five most common calamities Whitney says cause 98% of human suffering.

It’s a valuable conversation chocked full of fantastic advice for listeners of all ages.

If you’re looking to strengthen the relationships in your life, this is an interview you don’t want to miss. 

Listen to Dan’s conversation with Whitney and more on this week’s episode.
