Cheryl Esposito welcomes Phil Town, investment guru, hedge fund manager, and author of two New York Times #1 best-selling investing books, RULE #1 and PAYBACK TIME.

Friday March 21, 2014 10:00 am Pacific Time

Phil Town wants us to vote with our money for the kind of world we want in the future. He wants us to take charge of our investments and put our money where our values are…and make sure you don’t panic when the stock price drops…just go ahead and buy more. For most people, the idea of being happy when a stock price drops does not compute. For Phil, it’s a great day – it’s the day the stock goes on sale! And he buys more…of a business that he believes in and will stick with over time. Most people would run in opposite direction.

But then, Phil isn’t your typical finance guy. He is a former Green Beret in the U.S. Army Special Forces. He spent ten years working as a Grand Canyon river guide, a few times wondering if a particular trip would end up being his last because, well, the river is in charge, you know. On one trip, he was guiding a group down the nastiest rapid on the Colorado River, when his split-second decisions saved a boatload of people from a whitewater disaster.

That would be a pivotal moment in Phil’s life, but not because he saw his life flash before his eyes. One of the people whose life was saved saw something in Phil that prompted him to take Phil on a journey of a different kind: teaching him the road to successful investing and financial wealth, as a way to thank him. Within five years, Phil had built a borrowed $1,000 into $1 million that has multiplied many times over. Phil decided that if he could do this, anyone could, and started teaching the principles and methods to others, encouraging people to take responsibility for where their dollars are invested, beginning with Rule #1: Don’t Lose Money!
