Interview with Da Coach

Hey everyone, Da Coach interviewed me for his investor/entrepreneur series! And by “Da Coach,” I’m referring to Coach Carson and not Mike Ditka. And I’m sorry for my Chicago slang.

I was born and raised in Chicagoland (more slang) and still talk like a native Chicagoan. I even dress like someone from the region:

I get asked this question frequently when I wear this cap in the Midwest:

Are you a farmer?

Nope. Unless you count my four pathetic tomato plants.

Anyway, I also enjoy the Bears, deep-dish pizza and Portillo’s. Regarding the last one, if you put ketchup on a hot-dog, you’ve committed a cardinal sin, punishable by death if you’re within Chicago city limits. Just don’t do it.

Pequod’s Pizza, the best thing you can put into your mouth

But I digress…


Da Coach

Da Coach (Ditka) and Coach Carson both played football, but that’s where their similarities end. I can’t see Coach Carson throwing a wad of gum at someone, but who knows? Maybe he’ll throw gum at me after reading this nonsense.

But I digress…

Today, I appear on Coach Carson. Click over to check out my interview where you’ll learn about:

  • Why my butt was once redder than a baboon’s*
  • My adventures in real estate
  • Why I’m obsessed with plastic dinosaurs**

  • My best market timing tip****
  • My favorite real estate deal
  • How the Chicago Bears are going to win the 2018 Superbowl*****

    The pictures of your house have me wondering how the alligator/crocodile pit under the zip-line turned out.

  4. Great read. Thanks for sharing and being open and honest. Your comment, “I’d focus on living. I spent too much time earning money and not enough time enjoying myself.” really hits home with me. I am really trying to not have reaching FI take over my life, but be a part of it.

  6. Read the great interview and left a comment there, Carl. One slice of Chicago deep dish = one full thin crust pizza in my book. That just is an example, man, of how much good stuff you pack into each post. Keep up the great work.

    • Yeah, deep dish is intense. I always feel emotionally horrible after eating it (“How many months did I just cut off my life?”), but it doesn’t stop me. Maybe it’s better that I don’t live in Chicago!

  7. Bahaha! Congrats on scoring the interview. 🙂 I used to put ketchup on hot dogs (the shame!) but I’ve since converted to mustard like a normal human being!

    Was a regular at Pequod’s when I lived in Lincoln Park…often recommend that place along with Bacino’s. Nothing quite matches a 5-degree temperature, dinner, and movie (movie theater right next door)

    • Damn, Pequod’s is sooooo damn good. If I ever get super crazy, I’ll have them make like 50 pizzas and then I’ll take them back to Colorado. Hell, I may do that now. Maybe I’m already crazy?
