Matt Badiali began his career path working in the field of science. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Penn State University before attending Florida Atlantic University where he added a masters degree in geology to his academic resume. Next, Matt would attend the University of North Carolina for five years in pursuit of a Ph.D. until one day a fateful conversation with a friend in 2004 convinced him to turn his attention to Finance.
The friend, who held a Ph.D. in finance, wanted Badali to help him to develop a system of investment methods that would appeal to the average person. This friend knew that Matt’s expertise in the fields of science and geology would be a great asset in crafting these investment strategies.
Matt would find that he enjoys providing investment advice to people and continues to help investors discover the best options for investing in natural resources, metals, and energy. In order to reach more investors, Matt began a newsletter in May 2017 that he titled the Real Wealth Strategist. Many that have followed the investment advice of Matt Badiali report gains of double, and sometimes even triple digits.
Recently Matt sat down to provide answers to a few important questions.
What Prompted The Start Of Your Newsletter
The newsletter is a natural fit for my particular educational background and skill set. I began my career by providing financial advice to everyday people in 2004 after being encouraged to do so by a friend. The newsletter is a way that I can reach more people in this endeavor.
What Does A Typical Day Look Like In Your Life
Days for me usually start at about 6:30 A.M. After my daughters leave for school I usually enjoy a quick cup of coffee, check the day’s weather reports and scan through the morning headlines.
I am usually at the office around 8:00 A.M. I like to spend the first part of the day writing because that is when I focus best. Next to their emails, and checking the activity of the companies in our portfolio. I wait until after lunch for phone calls and meetings. Learn more on crunchbase about Matt Badiali
How Do You Make Your Ideas Become Reality
I think they are already a reality because I draw on actual experience. This I feel adds a certain level of authenticity for my readers. I have spent many years in different parts of the world working as a geologist and I try to bring these experiences to those that I serve.
Is There A Present Trend That Excites You
A major transformation in the way we consume energy is at hand. The shift that is underway to becoming a world that is powered mainly by electric power is as big as Kerosene becoming the energy of choice over whale oil
If You Had To Start The Path Over What Would You Change
That one I can answer easily. I would take advantage of internships. I would provide free labor for companies I want to work for. Build a resume with entries that are applicable to your field of interest.
