David Barnett - Safely Invest in Businesses with Superior Returns

Final BookCoverImageHis big dream is to become infinitely wealthy by having passive income streams that exceed his monthly living expenses and he is well on his way.

David is an author and educator in the field of local investing and small
business transactions. He had careers in business brokerage, finance brokerage, commercial banking and business to business sales. In 2014 he released his Amazon Best-selling book, Invest Local, which teaches readers how to safely invest in local small businesses and get superior returns without exposing themselves to increased risk.

David got a fancy university business degree and then spent the next 10 years un-learning his degree while he figured out how small businesses really work.

After a career in advertising, which let him peek inside the workings of hundreds of small businesses, he began the first of several advisory practices in 2006.
