Vitaliy spent the first eighteen years of his life in Murmansk, Russia, a city located above the Arctic Circle in the northwestern corner of Russia.
He and his family then emigrated to the U.S. in 1991 where he would study to become a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).
Vitaliy entered this country with a very strong scarcity mindset, even being blown away by the idea that you could have soda whenever you wanted.
Over the years, Vitaliy would begin writing with a focus on value investing. He started with a more analytical approach that covered financial topics, but over time, his audience grew to ask more and more for his personal stories.
Today, he fully embraces that form of author he has become with his new book Soul in the Game.
We cover some of the topics from his book such as a method to reduce decision fatigue which Vitaliy calls half-binary decisions, the importance of sinking funks, and how emotional intelligence affects investing.
Vitaliy has so much more to offer in this episode as well as in his books so we hope you find a nugget to help you live a more meaningful life.
