I love this podcast because it crushes your dreams and getting rich quick. They actually got me into reading stats for anything you’re tuned in to the Investing for Beginners podcast led by Andrew Sather and Dave Ahern with a step-by-step premium investing guide for beginners. Your path to financial freedom starts now.
[00:00:00] Andrew: We are here for our first official YouTube collaboration. We are joined by Jason Rivera. How’s it going, Jason?
[00:00:07] Jason: Doing awesome. How are you guys?
[00:00:08] Dave: We are doing great. Thank you.
[00:00:10] Andrew: Yeah, I got Dave here with me.
I wanted to start with maybe your background just introduced. What do you do or are in the investing realm now, managing money, whatever it is? And then maybe after that, how did you get started?
[00:00:23] Jason: Yeah, so I run the value investing journey blog had for 8, 9, 10 years, which is ancient in the blogging arena.
We also, I also have our masterclass by value investing masterclass, where we teach students how to find, evaluate and value great stocks faster written a couple of books called how to value invest and on the float, teach people how to to value invest and about investment float. And then, I also managed some portfolios as well for some investment portfolios, and that is the short version of my story.
[00:00:55] Andrew: Like a CFA kinda thing.
[00:00:56] Jason: No, I’m actually self-taught; I’m completely self-taught. I wasn’t able to go to college due to severe health issues in the past. So I’m completely self-taught, and when I say self-taught, most people are like whatever. And they learned from mentors.
I, 99% of what I know is that I know about investing finance is self-taught from books, Google. Because when I first started about 15 years ago, there were no online courses with this stuff. And because I couldn’t go to college, I didn’t have a network of people like to reach out to talk about. My dad was in the air force, and my mom was a stay-at-home mom slash flight.
She worked as a receptionist, so we didn’t talk about things like investing. So I’m completely self-taught no, no certifications, no degrees. I haven’t even taken it. I was about to say I haven’t taken one college course. I took one college course on valuation firms from Aswath Damodaran. I think that’s how you pronounce his name.
Years ago, I could finish the course. Yeah, completely. A self-taught.
[00:01:55] Andrew: You’re in good company. That’s Dave and me too. Or both self-taught then go to school for anything. I’m a huge fan of Damodaran. I know Dave is too; I’ve got several of his books, including those big thick textbooks, his, and yeah, it’s interesting. Like when you’re passionate about something, how.
It can really learn, and things can stick in your head that might not necessarily happen even if you are enrolled. What was it that got you interested? You mentioned you didn’t really have a network of people that introduced you the finance. So was there something that kind of drew you to the stock market investing?
Like, how did you even end up? Like from the very beginning.
[00:02:36] Jason: Yes. So it’s a fantastic question. So this my I’ve always wanted to make money and become wealthy ever since I was a little kid, I don’t really know why. I can’t remember why other than, of course, to make lots of money, who would want to do that?
