100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the podcast today. On the mic we have a very special guest. He is known as one of the world’s go-to people for investing advice amassing a net-worth of somewhere near $300,000,000. He is the founder and chairman of Rogers Holdings, and the co-founder of the famous Quantum Fund and Soros Fund Management that he built with George Soros in the 80’s. He is an author of many top-selling books and has been someone that offers sound and legitimate advice about business, investing and living a good well-balanced life, and his name is Jim Rogers.


We were very excited when we found out that Jim accepted our invitation to come on the show because he is a personal hero to both Noah Laith who joins us co-hosting today and myself. I started following Jim back in 2008 when I began investing in gold and silver.  He was a proponent of always having gold and silver, and I enjoyed listening to Jim on interviews and learning from someone who seemed to have an incredible amount of insight and experience. Chatting with Jim was a blast, because he is a very down-to-earth person who seems to value the important things in life, like spending time with his family, going to the beach, travel, riding motorcycles, giving back, teaching others, and doing good in the world over amassing more and more wealth. We had some creative questions to ask Jim about life philosophy, influence and what he would tell his 20-year old self, but also dig into those questions about investing today, where the markets are headed, his long-term view of economies and we threw in a few questions that you guys sent in to us.
