On this episode, I’m happy to have Morgan Housel (@morganhousel).

Morgan is a partner at the Collaborative Fund. He’s a former columnist at the Motley Fool and a former columnist of the Wall Street Journal. His work has also been published in Time, USA Today, World Affairs, and Business Insider. You name it, he’s been there. Simply put, he’s one of the shining lights of the business press.

More than that, though, he’s one of the few people that I read all the time. As I’ve gotten to know him over the years, I can also tell you he’s an exceptional person.

We cover a lot in this interview, including:

  • What valets are really doing in your sports car once you hand over the keys
  • Morgan’s shocking discovery that his dream of becoming an investment banker wasn’t a good fit
  • The hilarious way Morgan was “not fired” from one of his earliest jobs
  • The three types of financial writing and the one Morgan finds most useful for readers
  • The brilliant method Morgan uses to keep his confirmation biases in check
  • When it’s ok to change your mind and when it’s important to double down on what you know
  • The teachers that most influenced Morgan’s life and what they did differently that made them so outstanding
  • The process Morgan uses to generate fresh ideas even when he feels like he’s exhausted them all
  • How he structures his daily routines around when he does his best thinking and writing

We even tackle a few of your questions, like what would he do if he knew there were no consequences, how life has changed since becoming a new father, and what’s on his bucket list.

You’re going to love getting to know Morgan. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
