    291: Stem Cell Therapy and Alternative Healthcare

    291: Stem Cell Therapy and Alternative Healthcare

    This episode may not be a financial investment for your wealth, but one for your health - which is arguably even more important! After Sam tried stem cell therapy for the first time on his knee, we decided to have an expert on the show to talk about this exciting alternative to traditional healthcare. Ryan Alling is the Co-Founder of Luxury Stem Cells, which specializes in catering to American patients and provided various stem cell treatments at their clinic just over the border in Tijuana, Mexico. Ryan and Sam talk about the many benefits of stem cells and struggles to bring them to the mainstream in the United States. Then, Johnny jumps in with Sam to talk about their personal experiences with stem cells and whether they'd want to try them in the future.

    290: Generate Higher Passive Returns Selling Shareholder Voting Rights

    290: Generate Higher Passive Returns Selling Shareholder Voting Rights

    We dig into a new platform called Shareholder Vote Exchange (SVE) to unlock value in proxies you are issued for each individual stock you own. As far as we know, SVE is the first of its kind to take on this concept at scale, and this could be an easy passive way to earn extra returns on assets you already own! Derek interviews SVE Founder & CEO Preston Yadegar to find out how it all works and how the company can convert your unused votes into additional revenue. Then Sam and Derek convene on the concept and potential of this, plus throw in a little talk about wine as well (of course!).

    288: Dave Ramsey Personality George Kamel on Breaking Free from Broke

    George Kamel is the 3rd Dave Ramsey Personality (links to previous below) to join Invest Like a Boss and he has a new book out titled Breaking Free from Broke: The Ultimate Guide to More Money and Less Stress. This interview was recorded in November 2023 and was held until the book came out (this week!). George goes over basic debt avoidance principals and all the money traps designed to keep people broke and how to avoid them. Soon after the interview, there was controversy about a video George made about the 4% rule that went against a Ramsey principal... Johnny and Derek address that in the outro.

    About George Kamel:
    George Kamel is a Ramsey Personality and personal finance expert. Following Ramsey’s proven money plan, George went from negative net worth to a millionaire in under 10 years. Since 2013, he has served on the Ramsey team, speaking across the country, co-hosting top-ranked Ramsey Network podcasts, like Smart Money Happy Hour and The Ramsey Show. On his YouTube channel, George educates and entertains, exposing the financial system designed to keep you broke. His goal is to help people spend less, save more, and avoid money traps so they can live a life with more margin, options and freedom.

    287: Jared Dillian on How to Live a Stress-Free Financial Life

    A bit of a format flip on this episode as Sam and Derek tag team an interview with Jared Dillian, author of the new book No Worries: How to Live a Stress-Free Financial Life. Jared has had quite an interesting background from working at Lehman Brothers during their 2008 collapse to building a successful financial newsletter and podcast. The first half of the episode digs into Jared's thought on the current state of the economny, the effect of an inverted yield curve and his thoughts on the FIRE movement. We then jump into the principles discussed in the book for the second half of the episode. About Jared Dillian:

He graduated from the United States Coast Guard Academy in 1996 with a B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science, from the University of San Francisco in 2001 with a Masters in Business Administration, concentration in Finance, and from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2023 with a Masters in Fine Arts in Writing. Jared worked for a small floor market maker on the Pacific Options Exchange from 1999-2000, and was a trader for Lehman Brothers from 2001 to 2008, specializing in index arbitrage and ETF trading.

Great, fun and a wealth of Knowledge!!!

A wealth of knowledge is shared in a very genuine and honest way. The content gives you a broad view on many diversified ways of investing you might not be aware of, an eyeopener to say the least, but also they do it in a very fun and engaging way.

I love the recommendations part of it as well, really appreciate the effort put behind it!

And after 3 million downloads, obviously it goes without saying, very highly recommended!

Definitely Worthwhile

I am an experienced investor who has been listening to the podcasts regularly for over three years. The guys cover a wide variety of topics from real estate to crypto to wine and farm land. So, they have definitely broadened my horizons and educated me. I appreciate hearing about their real life experiences. Understand that many of the guests are selling their funds/investments (like most podcasts), and that the host may not be an expert in that category (they don’t claim to be). So, if something sounds interesting to you, I suggest you do additional research before investing. Example: farmland - this sounded like a solid investment based on the ILAB interview. But then I heard another podcast in which the host debunked many of the selective data points I heard on ILAB with hard facts. Not a knock on ILAB, just a caution that applies to most investing podcasts that have guests. Overall, I like the approach the guys take, and it really seems like they are genuine about trying to educate their listeners. I will be becoming a Patron member in support of Sam, Johnny, and Derek.

Eddie J. Soto ,

I love how fun each episode is yet also provides investment ideas.

I love Cody Flaherty vision of how he wants to expand Winner Winner. I can't wait to have a netflix of digital games that are simple and fun like Winner Winner.
