A couple of years ago, I tendered my resignation letter to Palm Beach Research Group.
A group of investors with a combined net worth in the billions had approached me to manage a heap of their money. The interest was so strong I had to cap the fund at $100 million.
But as I prepared to launch the fund, something odd happened…
I started second-guessing my decision. And what I discovered during that period of doubt would change my life forever.
I came to realize that no matter how many more zeroes I added to my net worth, it wasn’t going to make me any happier than I was as a newsletter editor.
This realization floored me…
I understood my happiness would actually decline if I went back into money management.
Friends, when you try to get even richer from something that reduces your happiness… you’re making a bad decision.
I came to understand that helping regular, everyday people move the needle on their net worth is much more satisfying than helping somebody worth billions make a few hundred million more.
No amount of money can replace the intangible “wealth” and personal happiness I get from adding value to a not-yet-rich person’s life.
Here’s why I’m telling you this…
The Key to Happiness
Recently, I sent a sell alert to subscribers of my flagship crypto newsletter Palm Beach Confidential… And many had the opportunity to book massive gains of up to 37,500% on several of my altcoin recommendations.
Since then, I’ve received dozens of letters from readers who’ve made life-changing gains from my recommendations.
Some told me they used their gains to retire early… Others used their profits to travel the world or pay off mortgages… And a few have even started their own businesses.
(I read several of these comments during a recent video update. Paid-up subscribers can watch it right here.)
One person wrote to me, “Thank you so much for all your hard work and perseverance… And I thank God for putting you in my path.”
I can’t put into words what this means to me…
When I worked on Wall Street, I didn’t like who I was. I had allowed myself to become a machine focused only on my wants. I got greedy. And my ego eventually got the best of me.
Long story short: When the market turned against me, I lost everything. And I mean everything. My homes… my cars… my watch collection. Even my wife and I separated. I was emotionally shattered. I left Wall Street and stumbled my way from one dreary job to the next.
I sold stock photography to ad agencies. I took lunch orders at a restaurant I used to eat at. I tried my hand as a recruiter and even sold software for about a year. After about two years of this aimless wandering, I knew I had to change. I had to do something different.
I’ve always known I was born to work in the financial markets. It’s in my blood. And so I took a long, hard look in the mirror and made some serious changes.
I came back to Wall Street with a newfound respect for risk and a newfound respect for my clients. I focused on adding value to my clients while keeping a keen eye on risk management. Within a few short years I made back all I had lost and more.
But I was still trapped in an ecosystem that was built around putting the client third. First was the firm, second was the advisor, and finally, third was the client. Even though I had changed, I realized the system I was in never would.
That’s when I decided to leave Wall Street and write for you.
I quickly learned helping someone who isn’t already wealthy become wealthy brings more joy to me than helping millionaires make a few more millions. I take a lot of pride in being able to do that at a scale no one in the newsletter industry has ever done before.
But what I’m really proud of is the faith you put in me during the brutal 2018–19 Crypto Winter… when bitcoin dropped as much as 84%.
I can’t even mention what was in the nasty emails I got during this time. Critics said I was reckless and careless to recommend investing in crypto.
But I knew I wasn’t. And for those of you who stuck with me… you saw the bigger vision. And that’s something you need to be proud of.
Because you did that, not me.
I did everything in my power to keep you focused on the big picture during those terrible times. But you were the one who said, “Okay, I’m going to believe in this guy. I’m going to believe in his research. I’m going to believe in the future that’s developing around these assets that everybody else says are ridiculous and have no value.”
And the confidence you’ve shown in me – and yourself – to stay the course to the other side where so many of you are seeing life-changing gains… It’s overwhelming for me.
As much as I’ve done for you, you’ve done even more for me. You’ve allowed me to redeem myself for the sins I committed as a young impressionable man on Wall Street. And that is a gift I cannot put a dollar figure on.
More Opportunity Ahead
If you’re new to crypto and haven’t had a chance to experience gains like my longtime subscribers… I sincerely hope I can do for you what I’ve done for so many others.
And the good news for you is the window is still open – but not in bitcoin.
At about $54,000 each, bitcoin is just for the big boys now. For them, a 10x or 20x gain is a huge move. And over time, I think we will see bitcoin do that. But for the little guy who wants a shot at changing his life, even a 20x winner is not enough.
That’s why on Wednesday, March 31, at 8 p.m. ET, I’m holding my next big event: Crypto’s Next Trillion-Dollar Coin.
When I first recommended bitcoin in 2016, its entire market cap was $6 billion. It hit as high as $1 trillion in February 2021. My early subscribers had the chance to book gains as high as $16,377% – enough to turn $1,000 into $164,768.
But what nobody sees… what the media isn’t reporting… and what no member of the financial elite wants you to find out is this: Behind the scenes, the smart money is now going all in on another coin that I believe will hit one trillion dollars in value this year.
And I’ll tell you – for free – the name and ticker symbol of this coin just for attending my event. (As you might already know, my free picks have been sensational – with average peak gains of 883%.)
Again, I just want to say thank you to all my readers.
I hope once the COVID-19 pandemic is over… I’ll get a chance to meet you in person at one of our live events. And maybe you’ll even get a chance to tell me your story in person… It’ll be wonderful.
Let the Game Come to You!

P.S. As with bitcoin, the next $1 trillion coin has long coattails… And if it hits $1 trillion, it could propel some smaller coins as high as 326%, 340%, and 892% or more.
I’ll tell you all the details during my special event on March 31. Click here to sign up.
