This is a special Wealth Letter in that it is an audio interview format.
Gav Blaxberg agreed to answer some questions and provide his insights for The Wealth Letters community on his pursuit of wealth, wisdom, and meaning.
Gav is a former analyst for Goldman Sachs and is now the CEO and voice of Wolf Financial, a social media marketing firm that aims to combine social media & investment research to help people build wealth. He hosts 40+ hours per week of live content on Twitter Spaces, writes a weekly newsletter to over 9,000 investors, and hosts The Market Madness Podcast focusing on all things in the world of finance.
Gav also shares insights daily with his Twitter audience at @GavBlaxberg and @WOLF_Financial
I challenge you to listen to this insight as if it is being spoken to you personally.
Be willing to be vulnerable and open your mind to ideas and suggestions that have proven worthwhile in another’s journey. Do not blindly accept any and all advice given, but rather take in the information and distill it down to if & how it can be applied to YOU and your unique self.
Michael Jordan said that he imitated Dr. J.
Kobe Bryant said he studied and imitated Jordan.
But, they mixed in their own uniqueness.
While not everything will relate directly to one’s current situation at the exact moment, there may be some gems that will be worthwhile in time.
Objectives / Overview:
Who is Gav Blaxberg?
After working with high net worth individuals & entities at Goldman Sachs, what has he found to be a recurring theme around their success?
What is success for Gav, and what is he called to do in his life?
One thing he would tell his younger self.
Listen to Gav’s story and his findings on wealth, success, and purpose:
The TLDL (Too long, didn’t listen) / Takeaways:
Gav has worked closely with many successful, high net worth people in his time at Goldman Sachs, as well as in his current business. He has found that there are two key qualities that most of these people have:
They are “people people” —> People like them.
Deeply ingrained in trust —> People trust them.
Gav’s definition of success, and how he got to be where he is today
Outworking other people & sacrifice. It’s not a glamorous answer, but it’s a true answer.
Keeping the “secrets of others” is essential. Meaning that people need to be able to trust you. If they trust you, connections are built.
Gav said, “My superpower is give me 7 minutes with someone on a Zoom call, and I will make anyone my friend.”
Learn from others who have already done it before!
Gav’s mission & purpose
In 2008, his father lost everything and declared bankruptcy. Gav was 10 years old at the time, and remembered everything in his life changing and wondered why?
This led him to want to learn how to learn from the past, and to educate himself on managing risk when it comes to money, and wants to help others learn to do the same so that we don’t have to experience a similar traumatic event.
ONE thing Gav would tell his younger self
“The good, bad, ugly, and beautiful all happen for a reason, and have brought me here today, so I don’t have a good answer. Maybe I will have a better answer in 10 years.”
