CCC046: Financial Mentor Todd Tresidder

One of the people I planned to meet at FinCon14 was Todd Tresidder. Mission accomplished!

Todd has an amazing story. He went from being a high school entrepreneur and mechanic to hedge fund manager. He found himself “retired” at age 35 after selling the hedge fund business he was a partner in. This was in 1998. Todd has remained retired while riding the ups and downs of the market. Including the tech bubble and great recession.

Todd is deliberate and intentional with his decisions. He has used statistical analysis models he developed to make market decisions. Todd makes car buying decisions largely based on the numbers. He can afford to by new. He can afford the depreciation. Yet, most often he has bought used. He doesn’t like the idea of wasting money. He also doesn’t have his ego tied up in his car.

I think you should consider being like this millionaire next door!

Lastly, congratulations to Frank Manzella (@Frank_Manzella)as the winner of the autographed copy of Smart Money Smart Kids by Dave Ramsay and Rachel Cruze.
