Financial Mentor

Todd R. Tresidder, as he states is, “walking the talk.” Tresidder retired at age 35 as a hedge fund investment manager. He helped produce 100 percent winning years for his hedge fund and promoted the same tactics he used personally in the blogs he writes. The gist of the blog is to teach people how to use their money to have financial and personal freedom. Todd focuses on nonconventional means of investment. Blogs such as Retirement 101, and Wealth Building 101 are introductory courses to achieve financial independence in your life. Tresidder talks about how in his life, material wealth does not equal happiness and how he has used his fortune to retire so early and use it towards what he values most.

Contrarian Edge

Vitaliy Katsenelson, a Russian native, moved to the states in 1991 along with the rest of family.
