Gregg Schoenberg sold his company the Financial Revolutionist for millions of dollars. He's had mountains of success and lived a remarkable life from living in Spain for 6 months with his wife, taking care of his mother before she passed, working with Ray Dalio, launching an executive coaching business & starting a wildly successful financial newsletter. Gregg has lived a handful of different lives. He broke into Wall Street after attending Washington University and Cornell.
After chasing money and working for a big bank, Gregg realized (at 40) that he was not living the life he wanted to live. While the money was good, he could see what the next decade of his life would look like if he stayed at the bank. So he left. With no real plan in mind for what was next, he spent 6 months preparing for his next endeavor, while living in Spain with his wife and young kids. His time away from Wall Street gave him the space he needed to explore different outlets.
The challenges of life set in when Gregg chose to move back home with his mother to take care of her while she was sick. It was during this time that Gregg discovered his gift for writing. After sending a few e-mails to friends offering opinions on the growing FinTech Industry, Gregg realized he had lighting in a bottle. He launched his newsletter, The Financial Revolutionist, and over the next several months grew it to over 130k subscribers and hosted several events. The business later sold for millions of dollars, which set Gregg up for his next entrepreneurial adventures.
As you'll hear in our interview, Gregg has a special gift for how he treats people. It's been one of the keys to his success in life and in business. If you are looking to take a risk and become a business owner (or already own a business), this podcast is for you!
