Buying Low and Avoiding Bubbles with Daniel Ameduri, Episode 49

After warning family and friends in 2007 about the coming market and mortgage collapse, Daniel Ameduri started his own YouTube channel, VisionVictory, which has received 10 million video views.

Not listening to his own advice, Daniel made a bad bet with Southern California's real estate market, which wiped out his entire income and savings, leaving him broke. With a special focus and passion for personal finance, he re-built his wealth and declared financial independence in 2012. Daniel is the co-founder of Future Money Trends and shares his best investing tips and how to grow a strong audience.
