Episode 259: Why Kamal Ravikant Invests In People, Not Spreadsheets.

Kamal Ravikant is one of Roland Frasier’s dearest friends. He refers to him as “probably the best human being he knows.” He is the author of the bestselling books, Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It and Live Your Truth. He’s been a US Army Infantry soldier, held the hands of dying patients, been the ‘can do guy’ in Silicon Valley, and spoken to audiences worldwide. 

But in this episode, Roland and Kamal dig into his success and experience in Venture Capital, investing, writing, and so much more…

This is an excellent episode in SO many ways, but you’ll especially like it if you want to know what to do when you don’t ‘know people,’ and you can’t get ‘in’ on insider networks.

“Never try to be the smart one when it comes to Investing. Because you’re not. You’re just not. Invest only with the smartest people. Keep quiet, add value, and slide your chip in.” Kamal Ravikant
