There are a number of good financial experts out there, and one of them is Matt Badiali. He took some time out of his busy schedule to sit down and answer a few questions about his life and work. One of the most peculiar things he talked about was his appreciation for the simple things in life. This is not to say that Badiali does not focus on work every day, but he does find it important to spend time with his daughters and read the newspaper. It is the simple things in life that ultimately give him the fuel he needs to work as hard as he does. Badiali believes that those who want success need to draw power from the things that bring joy to life. View Matt Badiali’s profile at LinkedIn.
Badiali, a graduate from both Penn State University and the Florida Atlantic University, has been a financial advisor for some time though his work has focused on mining and agriculture. He has also taken big steps in the energy industry. Badiali believes that the energy industry is where the future lies. He has noticed that people are paying attention to the kind of energy they consume. People now demand cleaner sources of energy because they are more conscious of the damage other forms of energy have caused. This is part of the reason he has focused on things like electrical vehicles and everything that surrounds their functionality.
Badiali spoke a lot about his predictions regarding energy and electric cars during the interview. He also spoke about his father who used to dream about investing. It seems that his father found investing to be too complicated for him. He wanted to try his hand in this world but felt like a fish out of water. Matt Badiali admitted that it was his memories of his father and a friend from college who ultimately helped him get into the financial world. This friend from college was working on a project that would help make investing easier for people, which definitely appealed to Badiali. It was kind of strange to be working on investing while getting his Ph.D in geology.
The ability to help others invest was something that stuck to Badiali though he continued his career through the mining industry where he was quite successful. Badiali also gave young people some advice. He said that following a passion is a good idea, but opportunities come out of nowhere. He said never turn an opportunity away because everything is a learning experience, even if it does not seem clear at the beginning.
