In the early 2000s, my focus was on growing my skills, climbing the ladder, and being where I need to be to get the job done. In 2009, I burned out hard. My new plan was to work for equity in tech start-ups and become financially independent. Swing and Miss, the first start up company I chose to work for was going nowhere (equity worth zero). What happened? Did I screw up everything? I chose the company because I was passionate about its mission, but I had not really looked at it deeper than that. No real plan. My next step was to call people that I knew had been successful in working for equity in tech and see what was different in their "playbook". Key lessons learned after first dead-end tech startup: -In trading my time and talent for equity, I need to think like an investor -Create a rigorous due diligence process -Don't fear failure, stay in the game -Keep learning May 2011, Started at Splunk Pre-IPO April 19th, 2012 Splunk had a break-out IPO April 20th, 2012 feelings of anxiety and fear creep in about how to manage the newly generated wealth. Had to figure out how to get real income (real estate) into my portfolio. I needed something sending me checks. Key lessons learned after the first IPO: -How to invest in private equity real estate -Set up my family for generational wealth -Own the result (don't put my future in someone else's hands) New Mission: Be the Founder of a DIY Family Office to become Financially Independent. Strategy: -Live within paychecks -Bonuses for extras -Invest all of our equity I climbed the ladder to become a CIO. At the peak I realized that I wanted to build my DIY Family Office more than climbing the ladder. I changed roles and reduced my scope. I founded Wealthward Capital in 2018 to help other technology employees invest in commercial real estate. On August 26, 2022, I graduated from my W-2 job to live a lifestyle by design. My Portfolio: -3 Start-Ups I worked for IPOed (SPLK, YEXT, GTLB) after my first miss -Replaced 75% of my paycheck with passive income -Built my DIY Family Office -Running a company structured around my life My Results: $223 Million AUM Now 7 Investments gone full cycle with an Avg 19.4% IRR to investors Diversified in Multi-Family, ATMs, and Mobile Home Parks with High Cash on Cash Returns 1000+ tech employees being educated on Passive Investing 150+ Investors Learn more about how I did this ā†’ GO HERE: https://techcareersandmoneytalk.com/ Email: [email protected]
