What made you decide to become a TIGER 21 Chair?

I have been working in the peer learning space for more than 25 years and for some of the oldest and largest peer learning organizations in the world. TIGER 21 is the pinnacle of the profession. The membership is the most sophisticated and challenging I have worked with and the support from TIGER 21 is exceptional.

In your opinion, what are the benefits of being a TIGER 21 Member (or chair)?

As a member, you will gain exposure to more opportunities, learn what others are actually doing, considering and avoiding in order to potentially get better results from your portfolio. You will learn more about yourself, your strengths and shortcomings and ultimately become a better investor, friend, colleague, parent and spouse.

Provide three reasons why someone should want to be a TIGER 21 Member.

TIGER 21 Members are brilliant, courageous and isolated. Most have taken calculated risks in a business they understood deeply be it real estate, private equity, or a professional role and it has paid off. Successful investing requires a very different set of skills including diversification, allocation and risk management. TIGER 21 provides the collective wisdom of a diverse set of peer specialists who provide insights to strengthen blind spots for each other. Members make better decisions, remained focused through good times and bad and have a safe place to go to discuss the real issues in their lives.

Was there a decision that changed your life?

Gaining the confidence to invest in multi-family residential real estate.

What is your best piece of advice for a young wealth creator?

Only invest in things you understand.

What lesson did you learn the hard way that you would like to share to help others?

It is harder to invest money effectively than to make it in the first place.
