Street Smart: Adventures on the Road and in the Markets – Show Notes
In episode 101 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview legendary investor Jim Rogers, a man with an immense passion for the markets and the discovering world.
Mr. Rogers has been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records twice: once for his 1990-92 world trip covering 100,000 miles across six continents on motorcycle and next for his world trip from 1999-2002 (through 116 countries in a custom-made Mercedes).
Jim Rogers is the author of multiple books, including Street Smart: Adventures on the Road and in the Markets. That book had a big influence on me as Jim describes his experience of traveling through the world while running a hedge fund. It was particularly inspiring to hear about Jim Rogers' adventures around the world, as well as his opinion of Asia vs. America.
Today, Mr. Rogers offers multiple conferences a year, a lot of them being in China. His website contains an updated schedule of his next destinations.
I’d love if you can take a few seconds to leave a review on iTunes or Stitcher. Let me know honestly what you think of the podcast because the only way I can improve is through your reviews.
