Adam Fiore is a US Navy veteran, entrepreneur, and self-proclaimed beach bum who started a stock portfolio with $500 and grew it to where it is today at well over $1,000,000. Adam has no formal training or education in finance. Initially feeling overwhelmed and intimidated by the stock market, Adam began his stock portfolio following the advice of financial advisors, which meant his portfolio was a predictable mix of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, ETFs, and index funds. From 2001 to 2018, these financial advisors grew Adam's portfolio from $500 to $490,000, but Adam worried that at 50 years old his portfolio wasn't growing enough to reach his retirement goals. Then in 2018 Adam read a book that would change his life forever and give him the confidence to fire his financial advisors and manage the stock portfolio himself (Adam reveals the name of this book in his Chairman of the Boardshorts course). And from 2018 to today, Adam has grown the stock portfolio from $490,000 to well over $1,000,000. In just 2 years, Adam has grown the portfolio more than the financial advisors could in 17 years, and now his portfolio is on track to far exceed his retirement goals. In the Chairman of the Boardshorts course, Adam shares the complete story of how he did it, including the mistakes he made along the way. He shares the resources and strategies that allow him to sleep well at night knowing that his portfolio performs well in both bull markets and bear markets. Adam's risk mitigation strategy allowed his portfolio to weather the 30% market crash in March 2020, and since March the portfolio is up more than 100% (and more than $500,000). And anyone who purchases the Chairman of the Boardshorts course gets access to all of the actual stocks in the current portfolio that is crushing the S&P 500 Index by more than 70% YTD. But Chairman of the Boardshorts is more than just a stock portfolio. It's a way of life. This is not a high stress day trading strategy. It is a long term investing strategy that allows Adam to enjoy time on the beach while his money works for him in the stock market. In addition to teaching his Chairman of the Boardshorts investing course, Adam also teaches courses on how to redefine what aging and illness can look and feel like. At 52 years old and with type 1 diabetes, Adam has managed to maintain the physique and agility of a 21 year old athlete. He has also been able to control his type 1 diabetes without any medication or insulin therapy. Adam shares the exact home workout that got him into the best shape of his life in the Chairman of the Boardshorts workout course, coming soon. There will also be an upcoming course on how to leave your day job and become a successful entrepreneur with your own business. Adam lives in Pennsylvania with his wife, two teenage daughters, and beloved dog.
