The Rules of Money: Blind Pool Funds, Understanding the Lender Mentality & Why Money Flees From Its Owners w/Ken Gee

In the world of wealth-building, having the money to invest is a big part of the equation but not the entire formula. 

Once we have the capital to deploy, where we put it and who we partner with is equally important and quite truthfully, what will make or break us. If we don’t make accurate decisions and pick the right investing vehicle, our money will flee from us. 

How do we determine how to deploy our capital? Besides syndication, what other low risk and efficient investing methods can we take advantage of? 

In today’s episode, I’m joined by an entrepreneur with a lot of wisdom and expertise around protecting your money. Founder and managing partner of KRI Partners, Ken Gee shares how to navigate the private money space so you get the upside, not the catastrophe many investors are headed for.
