Unconventional Wealth editor Aaron Gentzler shows you how to find wealth in unique places. He’s made money working on a cattle farm, as a plasterer, working on a road paving crew, and even for a company that did demolition work. Plus, he once worked for a tunneling and excavating company (yes, he worked as a ditch digger.)
He’s also worked as a librarian, which was a big switch from blowing things up. Then, after earning a Master’s Degree from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, he spent two years as a college lecturer. He’s been inside and outside the system – from blue collar (in half a dozen trades) to the absolute pinnacle of academic success.
After his time spent teaching, he began his career in finance, first as a researcher and later as a writer, focusing on small caps and tech stocks. In time, he became disillusioned with stocks, just like you. He saw what he had worked to build fall victim to fees, lies, and empty promises.
That’s why he turned away from the investing methods advertised on TV, deciding instead to show you how to build lasting wealth using “unconventional” methods. From common sense moves you can take to grow your wealth to bizarre investigations into the world of antiques, collectibles, gold, diamonds, franchising, or how to start a business – Unconventional Wealth puts your future back in your hands.
