    How Ray Dalio Built A Billion Dollar Hedge Fund From His Two-Bedroom Apartment

    Ray Dalio is a man that needs little introduction. He fell in love with the stock market at an early age, and has now built the world’s largest hedge fund in Bridgewater Associates. But after spending the majority of his life building his company’s financial security, he’s now entering a different life stage of giving back, and focusing on bettering his own personal principles. In this episode of Imposters, we speak to Ray about his meditation practice, how that helped him as an investor, and how he has coped with the death of his son.
